Hotel Walloon was the perfect location for Paul’s proposal to Chantal while they were on vacation in Walloon Lake, Michigan. In this case, Paul came to me with the plan. He drew a map, put it in a bottle, and asked for help from the staff at Hotel Walloon planting it at the end of their dock with lanterns and candles.

I tracked him and Chantal, so I knew when they were on their way. I lounged in beach chairs on Hotel Walloon’s lawn. Chantal and Paul walked out to the end, pulled up the message in a bottle. Paul got down on one knee to ask Chantal if she would spend forever with him. She couldn’t have been happier, the answer was an enthused, “yes.”
