Dustin & Mariah....well since you asked
How did the #HAPPYCOUPLE come about?
Well, Dustin reached out to Mariah on Facebook. Everyday...continuously...for a while. He would send a "Good Morning" every morning. A "Good Afternoon" every lunch hour. A "Good Night" every night before bed. They talked about life, goals, family, fears and traveling the world. After a while, Mariah in her direct, lovable, but not really looking for love kind of way asked Dustin "Are you going to ask me out or what?"
He responded in his amazingly funny, confident, you know you like me girl tone..."I was just waiting for you to ask me."
Then Dustin picked her up from Lawrence Technology where she was obtaining her Six Sigma Green Belt in his orange Mustang (Diva 3.)
They went to Champs in Bloomfield Hills where they laughed, ate and had an amazing time.
2 Years later... one girlfriend proposal, months of laughs and smiles, days of eating at some of the best restaurants in the world, 2 Bacon Bash events, a few trips to Chicago, one trip to Mexico, Las Vegas, Miami and Niagara Falls...and a proposal in Jamaica later...they were engaged to be married.
I guess you can say that although Mariah was not looking for Love, God found a way for her to find it with Dustin...
#MEETTHEBERRYS COMING in 2019
In case you were not aware, Mariah and Dustin are kicking off their wedding celebration with a "March of Dimes" walk. Dustin is the team leader for the #HAPPYCOUPLE team, as this walk is very close to his heart. Dustin and his twin brother were both born premature 31 years ago. Him and Mariah are grateful that God allowed them to live after only having just a 10% chance of life.
They are trying to raise $1000 for other premature children to have a chance at life, happiness and love. Please before you leave this site click on www.Marchforbabies.org/HAPPYCO... and donate towards their cause.
~Mariah & Dustin, HAPPYCOUPLE
