Portsmouth, N.H., Bridge Plays A Role In Marriage Proposal

NOEL KING, HOST:

Dan worked on the bridge in college, and Julia helped design the park underneath it. When they visited it this week, Julia thought they were there to just take photos. But Dan had arranged for the bridge to be lifted. And once it was at its highest point, he proposed. Julia said yes. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
