Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. Temperatures reached 7 degrees last night in Chicago, but it didn't stop at least two hearts from melting. Dominick Trnka and Colleen Vail were on their way to a party, when he held back.

Ms. COLLEEN VAIL: And I'm trying to run to the door because I'm so cold. And he's telling me, oh, wait up please. And he kind of pauses and tells me, I just want to ask you if you will spend the rest of your life with me.

MONTAGNE: She said yes. It's Morning Edition.
