PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The breathtaking view from Mount Washington is a must see, especially for couples on a romantic stroll.
But for Lindsay Loridas, the view in the direction of Heinz Field was more than spectacular on Friday night, it was life-changing.
As Lindsay looked through binoculars, 21 of her family and friends could be seen standing on the North Shore holding large signs with a question from Mike Guentner, the man about to become her fiancée.
It said: “Lindsay, will you marry Mikey?”
And with that simple sign, their four year relationship took a giant leap into a committed future. It had the shocked bride-to-be trembling with excitement.
“I don’t know what to think, my mind is literally blank and I’m shaking!” she said.
The couple’s family and friends always knew this day would come.
“They met at Western Michigan University while they were in college together and they’ve been together for about four years and they’re completely in love,” said Thomas Guentner, the groom-to-be’s brother.
Although, they don’t live here now, Mike, a Butler native, knew Lindsay loved the incline and had a special reason for proposing overlooking Pittsburgh.
“I thought it would be very important to do it in front of my city because hopefully we want to make our way back here,” Mike said. “Eventually, we’ll call Pittsburgh home, so I thought this would be a great place to take the kids and say this is where daddy proposed to mommy.”
