How did you meet? We met at church. I moved up to Michigan in 2014 and Peter moved back to Michigan from New York in 2015. We had met each other briefly before as our parents both attended the same church in Missouri, but we never interacted more than a casual hello as we passed each other in the hall at church until January. We went to the Detroit Auto Show in January of 2016 and then enjoyed dinner at Andiamo’s in the Renaissance Center. We have since shared countless experiences and are so excited to spend the rest of our lives together!
Engagement story: We went on a sailboat tour of Lake Huron because I love the water and Peter knew I had never been on a sailboat before. We then drove up to the tip of the thumb to a national park, and Peter proposed on the shore of Lake Huron. Peter managed to make the proposal a surprise! We then had a picnic on the beach followed by a quick swim in the frigid water and dinner in a restaurant about an hour and a half south of the beach.
