Couple Requires Rescue During Canoe Marriage ProposalBy Rocky Thompson on September 11th, 2012
A Michigan couple became stranded on an island when a needlessly complex marriage proposal went awry. The duo canoed to an island where they ‘discovered a bottle’ that had a poem written in French. The woman, a French teacher, read the poem and accepted the marriage proposal. They then faced what is sure to be their easiest portion of wedding planning when they had to decide how to get off the island after a storm kicked up. A phone call to 911 later, the Sheriff dispatched a boat with two deputies to get them.
