Couple rescued from island on Lake Huron

NORTH ISLAND, Mich. -- Nothing says happily ever after like getting stuck on an island.

A Michigan couple rowed out to Lake Huron in a canoe where Nathan Bluestein proposed to May Gorial last weekend.

But when the current picked up, they got stuck.

Eventually they washed up on North Island and needed to be rescued.

"The wind started crashing in and the waves are crashing in against the canoe. I'm sitting there with my head down, you know, really cold," Gorial said. "We had a couple of towels and he covered me up with the towels and he was, you know, shivering. We were just waiting."

Despite the rocky proposal, the wedding is still on.

It is planned for next April.
