Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Valentine's Day is the holiday when many of us take some time to celebrate the ones we love...and for one Northland couple, they agreed to spend the rest of their lives with one another.

Eric Berg proposed to his girlfriend of ten years at the Glensheen Mansion Thursday evening.

Berg got on one knee, popped the question, and Shannon Nelson said yes.

With tears in her eyes, Nelson says she was surprised, and has been looking forward to Berg asking her to be his bride for a long time.

"I can't say I didn't expect it but, it's still incredible and so romantic to do it here. We love Glensheen it's Valentine's day, what more could I want?" Shannon Nelson said.

Berg says he jumped on the opportunity to reserve a table for the Valentine's Day Dinner at the famous mansion and wanted to add a little more to the night.
