Mitch knew Lorraine was “the one” after their first date. The high school sweethearts started dating during their freshman year, and stayed together even though distance separated them during their college careers—he at the University of Maine at Fort Kent and she at Husson University in Bangor.
It was during Lorraine’s mother’s 50th birthday celebration that Mitch decided to propose. The family, some from as far away as England, rented a private room at a restaurant to celebrate. Once everyone was seated, Mitch stood up and proposed. “The next few moments were filled with joy, laughter, and tears,” Lorraine says. “He surprised everyone there—especially me!”
The couple, who had recently moved to Glenburn, Maine, decided to have their engagement photos taken at nearby Pushaw Lake. “We both love the outdoors and nature. The beauty of the lake was a perfect spot.”
