Couple becomes first to get engaged at Cleveland Aquarium

CLEVELAND - The newly-minted Cleveland Aquarium housed a first Monday – and it had nothing to do with sharks or fish.  

Will Finn proposed to Jessica Hennick in the aquarium's SeaTube and did it in a unique way, using a diver to ask the big question.

Greater Cleveland Aquarium posted a picture of the proposal on its Facebook page, which has garnered more than 700 likes and 70 comments.

Whitney Schnellinger posted, "this is by far the greatest idea ever! how cute!" and Shelby Jamison called it "one of the sweetest things I have ever seen."

Kimberly DuCharme added: "And what is so awesome about this is Jess was a college swimmer at Ashland University and so water is obviously super special in this proposal!"

We currently have an email out to the fiancée, so check back to for anymore details we get on the aquarium proposal.
