It was always a dream of Mariem's to see the Northern lights in person ever since she was a little girl. Because of this, John knew that he had to ask her to marry him underneath the wonderful colors in the night sky to make it a very memorable moment. It took several days on their trip in Iceland for the Northern lights to make an appearance. Mariem and John never gave up and drove around the whole country to find them. Finally at 11pm on November 11th, 2022 the sky started to light up and Mariem was so excited as ever to fulfill a childhood dream. John started to set up the camera to take pictures of the sky and for the big event that was about to happen. As Mariem was staring at the sky, admiring the green colors above, John got down on one knee, took out a stunning engagement ring and tapped Mariem's shoulder and asked "will you marry me?". Mariem was in awe as the greatest night of her life, just got better. She then said "yes John, of course I'll marry you.... about time you asked!". They both laughed as they continued to admire the Northern lights above together in happiness.
