We love romantic stories like this one from Jen R. in Salem:
"On a rainy November 1st, after a fun-filled Halloween in Salem, my boyfriend Lucas and I decided to tour the House of the Seven Gables before heading back to Cape Cod. After our tour let out, Lucas asked if I wanted to brave the rain and walk around the gardens and along waterfront. We admired the rolling fog that blanketed the harbor and the colorful foliage that had engulfed the historic ground’s large trees. I quickly took photos before the next tour let out. As I did, I heard Lucas call my name. I turned around to find him on one knee, holding a beautiful ring. Three years later, we are married and live in Salem, only a block away from where we got engaged."
