From Abby:

Matt proposed to me at Disney World this past summer in front of Cinderella’s castle.  When he got down on one knee, the big trolley that rides up and down Main Street U.S.A. was honking its horn loudly.  Lots of people were watching and cheering.  I honestly couldn’t think of a more fun and magical place to get engaged.  It was just the two of us that day and I really liked that.  We knew that we would have lots of time to celebrate with friends and family at the wedding, so it was really nice to just focus on the two of us and this commitment that we had just made to each other.  We went about the rest of the day riding rides, getting poured on by the Orlando afternoon rains (didn’t stop us from running around and enjoying Disney), stuffing our faces at the very romantic Lady and the Tramp restaurant, and then watching the Happily Ever Fireworks with an ice cream sundae.  It probably didn’t look like your average proposal day, but I wouldn’t have had it any other way. 

Matt and Lori Biswell announced the engagement of Abby Biswell of Quincy Senior High school and Matt Howard of Marquette High School. The wedding was in Quincy at the Quincy Country Club on July 6, 2019.
