A couple from St. Ignace got engaged at the top of the Mackinac Bridge and they've got some amazing engagement photos to prove it!

The couple won a Mackinac Bridge tower tour from the Michigan Department of Transportation and the Mackinac Bridge Authority. Cord Wilson took full advantage of the opportunity to propose to his girlfriend Emily Misner at the top of the Mackinac Bridge.

The Michigan Department of Transportation was in on plan. They provided a photographer, Sara Martin, who coincidentally also got engaged at the top of the Mackinac Bridge during a similar tour in 2007.

Emily Misner told MDOT that after she made her way up the final ladder and onto the tower top, Wilson called her name to get her attention and then got down on one knee to pop the question.

Misner said, "I think my first words were, 'Are you serious?'"


Wilson said, "She had not a clue. That was my goal, to keep it a secret."

Congratulations Emily and Cord!
