Wedding goes smoother than proposal

DETROIT, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- A Michigan couple rescued by the Coast Guard after a proposal gone wrong had their wedding day go off without any further catastrophes.

Nathan Bluestein and May Goriel, who live in the Detroit area, were married Saturday afternoon at Assumption Grotto Catholic Church in Detroit and said the day went much more smoothly than last summer's proposal, WDIV-TV, Detroit, reported Monday.

Bluestein's romantic proposal to Goriel involved hiding a proposal and romantic poem -- written in French -- in a bottle and slipping it into the water for his beloved to find during a canoe trip along the shore of Lake Huron.

Bluestein presented a ring to Goriel and the pair drifted out into the lake while celebrating their proposal. They soon discovered they were unable to paddle back against the current and had to use a cellphone to summon help.

The canoe was towed back to shore by a Coast Guard vessel.
