Sara & Michael in Farmington Hills, MI

It was love at first sight for Michael and Sara. So, Michael decided a romantic Valentine's Day proposal was the way to go. The Bride Sara Wood, 30, event planner and fundraiser The Groom Michael Martin, 29, sales and marketing manager The Date November 3 He picked up Sara for dinner and told her they needed to swing by the park (where they had their first date) to see his brother's new car first. While waiting for his brother to arrive (or so she thought), they walked over a little bridge and began reminiscing about their first date. Then Michael got down on one knee -- even though there were several inches of fresh snow on the ground -- and proposed. The couple soon began planning for their fall wedding in Detroit.
