'I'll Go Get a Ring Let the Choir Bells Sing' - Surprise Proposal on the Walkway Over the Hudson

I've had the very fortunate pleasure of knowing Dave (owner of the well-loved Jelly Belly Deli) for many years now. I expected nothing less of an epic proposal to Carol, his incredibly sweet and friendly long-time girlfriend.

.........................................................

Dave went through great trouble to ensure that his proposal went off without a hitch.  From planning a trip to Taiwan to surprise Carol (and meet and ask her father for her hand in marriage), to their first date on the Walkway-over-the-Hudson, this proposal returned to the scene of the crime and capped a beautifully scripted story bathed in kismet.

The proposal was disguised as a simple bike ride outing on the walkway, then halfway across, evolved into a full orchestra (courtesy of the amazingly talented MHCCC youth and worship team).

 and Dave singing the apropos, “Marry You” by Bruno Mars.

(for full-effect play the song while you read on)

The proposal went off in front of 40-50 friends and family plus a good amount of complete strangers. Relatives in Taiwan were linked in via Skype as well!

Dave brought Carol to the scene of their first date on the Walkway-over-the-Hudson, to get down on one knee and ask the question...

She said, "Yes!"
