All of us at the Purple People Bridge and the Newport Southbank Bridge Company want to wish a giant congratulations to Kim Dearborn and her new fiance Drew on their engagement on the bridge on Saturday night, October 28th.

The couple’s love stretches across a least two states.  Drew dropped to one knee to propose on the new state line marker on the bridge.  The couple’s first date started at Newport On The Levee and continued over on the Purple People Bridge.

“He knew that he wanted to purpose on the bridge right at the state line.”  She continued, “He was very purposeful in having me stand on the Kentucky side and him on the Ohio side.”

The couple is pushing for a June wedding.

“I love that we got engaged on the bridge and wouldn’t change a thing! Definitely the best night of my life (so far)!”

Hey, Kim… we think purple would be a great color for the wedding!
