Heather and Dave - August 12, 2006 proposal
Watch the video...it tells the entire story!
Some additional notes:
-Kudos to Bryan over at Foggy Lens Photography. I don't know how he managed to hold open the mouth of the balloon in moderate winds AND get the amazing picture featured at the end of the video!
-After we exited the balloon, we launched and chased. Later that evening, we had a great dinner and time out with the rest of the ballooning crews. Then we ended the evening with the event's closing fireworks. What a way to end that perfect night!
-We had never shopped for a rings together, and I knew nothing about shopping for jewelry. I went to Siebke Hoyt and got an education. Thanks Kendra! Heather wasn't aware of what was going on until I popped the question.
-We had planned a trip to Colorado the following month and Heather's sister had mentioned to her, "He's probably going to propose to you in the mountains." Thanks for unintentional diversion, Lacy! Perfectly executed!
-Heather's aunt and uncle from the area came to the rally. We invited them onto the launch field, and they ended up witnessing the proposal.
