The Couple: Paige Habermehl, 26, & Kent Boyer, 38
How We Met: Kent and I are teachers at the Bayless school district and both stay involved with district events. We first met in 2006. Kent asked me to ride in his truck that was pulling a float during a school parade. We enjoyed talking and getting to know each other during the ride and paid little attention to the parade going on around us.
The Proposal: In August ’09, Kent and I took a vacation to Door County, Wisconsin in August, before the school year started. On the way, we stopped in Green Bay. We had dinner at an Irish restaurant and walked along a sculpture-lined section of the Fox River. Kent then asked, “You will spend the rest of your life with me, won’t you?” I answered “Yes.” Kent pulled out the ring, a beautiful solitaire from Mavrik Fine Jewelry, and then asked “Will you marry me?” I think I was way too happy and giggly to respond, so he had to ask if that was a yes, and it was.
The Big Day: June 11, 2010.
