Lindsay and Cyle

How We Met: Cyle and I met in December of 2011. We were introduced at a bar in Royal Oak, Mich. through mutual friends. Both of us were coming off of bad breakups so we were skeptical of launching right into a new relationship at first. It wasn’t long before we realized we wanted to spend every minute with each other. Cyle worked nights and I lived 30 miles away from him at the time but we made it work!

How He Asked: A couple weeks ago we decided to plan a vacation with another couple to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. We left at 3 a.m. and drove all 7 hours through to Munising, Mich. to see the Pictured Rocks. After our beautiful day sightseeing we drove a couple hours to Paradise, Mich.

Saturday morning we woke up and drove to the Lower Falls of the Taquaniman River. We decided to be a little adventurous, took off our shoes and walked across the river to get to the wooden area on the other side. Not too far from the beaten path there was a small waterfall run off that led to the falls.

Our friends ended up wandering off without me noticing, and before I knew it Cyle was pulling me close, telling me how much he cared about me and that I was the greatest thing that had ever happened to him. Before I knew it, Cyle was on one knee asking me to marry him! I of course immediately said YES!

We have never been happier and I’ve never been more surprised!
