MASS AUDUBON’S DRUMLIN FARM

Eliza Meyer and David Meyer

cellist, clinical psychologist

Eliza recalls: The top of the drumlin at Drumlin Farm in Lincoln is one of my favorite spots. The first time I took David to visit, we hiked to the same boulder I climbed on as a little girl at day camp. Dave surprised me by pulling out his grandmother’s engagement ring and asking me to marry him.

TOP OF THE HUB

Brendan Stewart and Natalie Bergeron

co-owners, Symbol Photography

Natalie recalls: I was with friends at Top of the Hub when we noticed a helicopter hovering. After a few moments of shock, I realized that Brendan was in the passenger seat! He was holding a sign that said: “NATALIE, MARRY ME?” The restaurant manager gave me a sign that read “YES” on one side and “NO” on the other. I took it and held that “YES’’ up high!

LAKE WABAN

Dianne Reyes-Brynildsen and Scott Brynildsen

community relations coordinator, aerospace research engineer

Dianne recalls: There’s a legend at Wellesley College that if you walk around Lake Waban with a man three times, you’ll spend the rest of your lives together. During my senior year, my boyfriend, Scott, was visiting. We were walking around the lake when he suggested we take a picture. He propped his camera up, set the timer, then ran back to join me. Instead of standing next to me, he dropped to his knee and asked me to marry him.
