How he proposed: The groom proposed in front of the water fountain at the Milwaukee Art Museum at an “Art after Dark” event. Unbeknownst to the couple, a crowd had gathered on the walking bridge above the fountain and when the groom asked the bride “May I marry you?” and she said yes, the crowd cheered.
Bride’s occupation: Sales representative
Groom’s occupation: Marketing consultant

THE CEREMONY

The ceremony was written by the bride and officiated by the bride’s seventh-grade English teacher and friend, Marsha Nelson. It was held in the show dome at the Mitchell Park Conservatory.

What made the day unique: The ceremony and reception took place in the showdome, which gave the appearance of being outside under starlight.
Most touching moment of the day: Near the end of the reception, the bride’s seven-year-old son Emerson said, “Mom, I am so happy now!” When the bride asked him what he meant, he said, “Because now I have a dad.” The boy’s biological father passed away before he was born. Seeing how happy it made her son to finally have someone to call “dad” was a moment the bride will always remember.
