Grooms Parents: Kevin & Pam Mitchell
Date of Engagement: July 21, 2012
How We Met: We were introduced by Tim’s best Man, Michael Zavier, our sophomore year of college at Michigan State University. We became friends, and started having more and more classes together, and after realizing we had more in common finally became a couple right before graduation.
How he proposed: Tim was starting his MBA and spending a lot of time studying, so he suggested a weekend get away up north to spend sometime together before classes started up. Stephanie suggested that since he hadn’t been to Mackinac Island since he was younger what if they went there for something different. It was early Saturday morning and the two were planning on riding their bikes on the loop around the island before it got too packed or too hot. After a ways Tim stumbled on his bike (probably from being so nervous) and stubbed his toe, he said he needed to clean it off in the water. After coaxing Stephanie to come out on the shore with him, he surprised her by pulling a ring out of his backpack and asking her to marry him.
Wedding planned for August 3, 2013 in Bay Harbor, Michigan.
