Mitch and Maranda went to school together and have known each other for more than a decade, but they saw each other in a different light while out with friends the summer before their senior year of college.
They dated for a little more than two years while living in Italy, studying winemaking and working on a vineyard.
They went to Rome for a weekend, and Mitch popped the question at the Piazza Navona next to the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (or Fountain of the Four Rivers) after they took an amazing walking tour of the city and had wine and bruschetta.
The couple were happily married Oct. 19, 2013.
They are living in downtown Canton and are excited about all of the adventures to come.
