In July, Mike Kortge proposed to festival employee Nan Fisher at fine jewelry artist Lance Heck's booth.
Fisher and Kortge had grown up together as best friends in The Dalles, Ore., but grew apart after graduating high school. Now both in their 60s, the pair reunited at the beginning of this year and fell in love.
After they got together, Fisher asked Kortge why he had never asked her out when they were younger.
"He said that, 'Well, I would've asked you out, but I was afraid you'd turn me down and that would've broken my heart,'" Fisher said.
