Dream Wedding: Meet Michelle McKinley and Mark Alfano

Couple number two is Michelle McKinley and Mark Alfano of Warsaw.

With three children each, the couple's engagement story is as unique as their love for one another. Alfano proposed to McKinley during a Super Bowl party with the help of the police.

"They just came out, walked in the door, asked are you Michelle,” said Alfano.

“So then I saw the police at the door, my heart was beating a hundred miles a minute, because he was looking for 'Michelle',” said McKinley.

The police served her with a protective order; a heart pounding moment that she soon realized was a marriage proposal.

"So then it was all this mixture of emotion,” said McKinley. “I was so relieved that it wasn't something terrible and at the same time I knew what it was. So then I was crying, and I did say yes."

The two met while at work, Alfano a contractor and McKinley a painter. The most important job for their wedding will be celebrating it together.

"I think bringing everybody, bringing everyone together and to be there with us, that's the main thing,” said McKinley. “Whether we win or not, you know, we want it special."

These best friends share interests and dreams, but one special thing will always keep them together.

"I just saw her heart,” said Alfano. “Just what she means to other people too. It's nothing that I've ever really experienced before."

"That's what brings us together,” said McKinley. “Our hearts bring us together."
