They were both attending UCONN when they happened to be together in a comparative voter behavior course that seemed eternally long. To help stay alert, and maybe even to pass the time, Danielle would often bring fruit to class. One afternoon in between political discussions, she offered Mike a grape and, in his words, it was “love at first grape”. They continued getting to know each other and discovered their mutual love for New England foliage, among other things. Somewhere between drive around CT, RI, VT and Maine, Danielle and Mike quickly began falling in love. And then it happened, much to her surprise, that during peak foliage season of 2015 Mike got down on one knee – well as much as you can do so on a canoe in the middle of a lake – and there he asked Danielle to be his forever love, in the midst of the calm waters and the most stunning foliage you’ve ever seen.
Meet Danielle + Mike.
