My good friend, Mark, was ready to propose to his now wife, Michelle. He was very excited. He had a plan all worked out and needed some help. I was happy to tag along. We drove to West Beach (Stamford, CT) and mapped out where, when and how. According to Michelle, he never actually said the words, "will you marry me?" He got down on one knee and paused with the ring in the air. She had to kind of...remind him to say it.
All's well that ends well though, they survived the moment and have since become a lovely family welcoming two baby boys into the world (Mark Jr. and Niko).
