DTE Energy Music Theatre is celebrating it’s 40th concert season and with those 40 years, it brings a lot of special memories. DTE helped make a special memory for one couple with a wedding proposal.
Marine Sergeant Paul Wellman of Bay City reached out to the Palace Sports & Entertainment with the idea of proposing marriage to his girlfriend Katy Palmucci in the same seats, where they shared their first kiss less than two years ago.
The arrangements were made and the Marine Sergeant led his blind-folded girlfriend down to their old seats to ask her the big question.
On July 18, 2010, the two attended DTE Energy Music Theatre to see the Goo Goo Dolls in concert. As the band performed its hit single “Iris,” the couple kissed for the first time and their relationship began.
The couple is still involved in a long-distance relationship as Wellman is finishing his six-year hitch in the Marines in June and currently attends Saginaw Valley State University working on a Secondary Education degree while Palmucci currently attends the University of New England in Portland, Maine, working on her doctorate in Physical Therapy.
The DTE Energy Music Theatre 40th anniversary concert season opened on Friday, May 25 with a concert by Eddie Money.
