Bride & Grooms: Jenni Mella and Mitch Miller
How you met: Through mutual friends. He was kind of dating a friend of mine. oops!
How he proposed: We were driving down to Parowan for a family reunion and we stopped at Bryce canyon to go on a scenic drive. He told me knew of a really pretty overlook that he wanted me to see so we hiked down (it was freezing!) He had me close my eyes as we walked to the overlook. When I opened my eyes, he was on the ledge of a cliff overlooking with most gorgeous view of Bryce canyon. But even more gorgeous than that, was the sparkly ring he had in his hand! I was completely surprised and had no idea it was coming so it made it extra special.
