CASEVILLE, MI -
A Detroit-area couple who became stranded on an island last year exchanged vows in a wedding ceremony that -- unlike the elaborate proposal that prompted their rescue -- went according to plan.
WDIV-TV reports Nathan Bluestein and May Gorial were married Saturday at Assumption Grotto Catholic Church in Detroit.
Bluestein and Gorial set out by canoe in September in Wild Fowl Bay near Caseville, about 62 miles northeast of Saginaw. Gorial accepted the proposal, but strong wind and waves kept them from returning to shore. Bluestein had planned the proposal for months.
The two talked and snapped pictures, and didn't realize they were too far from land. They ended up on North Island, unprepared for the weather.
