Chelsea Guarco, of Eagle River, and Kevin Dana, of Peters Creek, plan to marry on Sept. 30, 2012 in Girdwood. The couple was engaged on Sept. 18, 2011.
The bride-to-be is the daughter of Jaclyn and Andrew Jackson and Jonathan and Aireen Guarco. She is a 2008 graduate of Chugiak High School who is currently enrolled in the nursing program at UAA and works at OPA in Anchorage.
The groom-to-be is the son of Beta and Dan Wolf and Richard Dana. He is a 2005 graduate of Chugiak High School who also has an A.A. in biology. He works at Barney’s Sports Chalet in Anchorage.
For the proposal, Kevin took Chelsea and their dog, Drake, on a hike at Beach Lake, where they had their first date and first kiss. After a surprise picnic, Kevin slipped a ring on Chelsea’s finger and asked her to marry him.
The couple met in high school and began dating after Kevin returned from college.
