The couple met during their first year of law school, where they were classmates. Michael and Sarah hiked Beech Mountain in Acadia National Park in Maine, where, at the summit, Michael proposed while their families were nearby on a trail to surprise and congratulate the engaged couple. 

A Spring, 2015 wedding is planned.
