A Proposal Prank

Nathan and Molly started dating back in 2002, in 8th grade. While neither of them would have ever imagined back then that they would be spending the rest of their lives together, fate has a unique way of making itself known. The couple dated exclusively throughout high school and even chose the same college. Nathan knew that he had a lucky catch with Molly, and he figured it was a now or never type of situation. Molly knew from the beginning that she wanted to go to Siebke Hoyt; it had practically become a family tradition. Her mother’s ring was from the store, and her brother had made his engagement purchase from them as well. Using the stone from his great grandmother’s diamond wedding ring, Nathan had a custom ring built for Molly at Siebke Hoyt. She had known that he was making a special ring for her to give her down the road, but she had no idea when or where the magical moment would happen. The couple took a summer vacation to Duluth, Minnesota, what Molly thought was just a summer get-away on Lake Superior. Little did she know that Nathan had been planning something memorable for that trip. Prior to leaving on their vacation, Nathan had purchased what in essence was a replica of the ring that Molly had selected. This “fake” ring would be the vehicle used to make one of the most entertaining and memorable proposals of all time… as you will see in the video! They say the rest is history, but this is one story that has a lifetime of memories still to be written. They plan to say “I do” on June 9th, 2012!
