Couple of the Month ~ Meghan + Jeff, Colony Club
Meghan Hart was born and raised in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan and went to DePaul University. Her fiance, Jeff Olsen was born and raised in Alpena, Michigan and went to Michigan State University. Jeff is a software developer for OnStar and Meghan owns a women’s clothing boutique in downtown Royal Oak called “Meghan Marion”.
“On August 11, 2014, Royal Oak went through massive amounts of flooding sue to heavy rainfall. Our basement had about 3 ft of backed up sewage and we had to throw most of what was in the basement in the trash. So, since our anniversary was on the 12th, I did not think we would be having a very romantic night. I had to go run the store and Jeff was left to clean up the sewage and bleach the basement. Little did I know was that he also ran around town picking up my ring and unsuccessfully catching my dad at my parents house. Jeff can’t keep a secret, so he had left all of his engagement errands until the day he planned to ask. The ring had been set in the wrong setting due to a late shipment because of the floods, and my parents had decided to go to a concert. Because of this, poor Jeff had to ask for my hand over the phone while my mom announced to everyone at the concert that her daughter was getting married. When I got home from the store, Jeff had a steak dinner on the table with the candles lit and had our big golden retriever puppy dressed in a tuxedo. I thought this was all for our two year anniversary and began fussing over how good the dog was being. Jeff then mentioned that that Sampson had a new collar. I looked down and saw that there was a big pink heart tag on our boy dog. I looked at it and it said ‘will you marry me?’ I turned around and Jeff was on one knee. I obviously said ‘yes’ and then started crying about 2 minutes later. It was perfect.”
