Couple from New Bedford Half Marathon Proposal Gets Married
Lauren Green proposed to her girlfriend, Katelyn Germano on Sunday, March 19, 2017, right after Katelyn finished the New Bedford Half Marathon. She said YES!
When we asked Lauren about the idea the next day, she said, "I planned this for about 2 months. My mom Debra Bernard was very patient with and helped me pick out the ring. Our friend Bernadette made sure to be with me so she could capture the special moment. Katelyn runs the New Bedford half every year and this year she made a new personal record which made the proposal even better cause she was crying at the finish line."
In a very clever proposal, Lauren was prepared with a sign that read, "Will You Be My Other 13.1?" Love how she used a play on words with the HALF marathon!
Fast forward a year and a half, I received a Facebook message from Lauren. "We did it!" The couple got married at the New Bedford Whaling Museum on Saturday, September 22. Congratulations to the newlyweds!
