Romance in the city
Our engagement took place on Sept. 13, 2012, on Nicollet Island in Minneapolis. Andy had the whole evening planned out. He proposed right before dinner at Nicollet Island Inn. The early proposal allowed us to enjoy our new engagement over a very elegant and romantic dinner. After dinner, we went on an hour-long horse carriage ride along the Mississippi River in downtown Minneapolis.
