Clarissa and Bethany’s Connecticut Farm Reception
July 12, 2014
This is your friendly reminder to always keep up with your friends. One, because it’s just a genuinely nice thing to do, and you should probably get better at staying on top of that anyway. Two, because you never know who will introduce you to the love of your life.
Bethany and Clarissa were in a long-distance relationship at the time. Bethany had been planning to propose on a train bridge by the Grand River, but this was back in 2013, when rampant rains caused the Grand Rapids area to flood constantly. Clarissa was making the two-hour commute back to Bethany’s while her soon-to-be fiancée wandered the town trying to figure out another place to propose. But it’d been raining for days, and she had few options. And thus, when Clarissa arrived, Bethany pulled up soon after in her pjs and, using the ring she wore constantly (the two had been looking into rings at the time, but hadn’t decided on a style yet), proposed. Well, tried to—Bethany dropped the ring in the process. But Clarissa said yes!
