Melanie and Drew's Skydiving Marriage Proposal
How we met: Drew and I met through mutual friends. We knew about eachother in high school but never thought anything of it. We went out with our friends one night (had a few drinks) and began talking.
We began hanging out and then after a couple weeks we were inseparable.
How he asked: The morning after my 24th birthday Drew told me he was taking me to pick up my birthday present. We began driving and pulled into a skydiving place. I began to freak out and started yelling “Noway!” So I started calling my parents, Drews parents, and my friends to come help talk me through this crazy adventure.
After 3 hours, our family and friends were watching us climb into the tiniest airplane ever as we flew 12,000 feet into the air.
Drew jumped first, as I began to get crazy butterflies. Then it was my turn, my instructor and I then jumped out of the plane freefalling at 200 miles per hour.
We landed, what a rush! My instructor told me to go hug my boyfriend. Drew came up to me and gave me a hug, then proceeded to tell me he loved me and got down on one lnee and asked me to marry him. I cried “of course!” What a rush of emotions in one day!
