“WM woke me very early on the morning of 9 August 2015, saying we were going to have a real sunrise breakfast. At 4:45am we left with the hotel bus to the “breakfast” site.

As we were driving, WM distracted me whenever there were a sign of the air balloons. I only noticed the balloons when they started inflating them. I thought WM was just spoiling me and the thought of proposing never crossed my mind.

WM said he wanted to go look inside the air balloon while it was being inflated. Hesistantly I followed him. Once inside he dropped to his knee and asked me to be his best friend for the rest of his life. In his hand he had the most beautiful ring I that could have dreamt about.

The joy I felt was reflected in the ring. Afterwards WM surprised me again with a ride with a ride in the same hot air balloon. He made me the happiest girl alive.

I can’t thank you enought for the most beautiful ring. I have received so many compliments about it. It suits me and my personality 100%. Thank you for making my best day, a perfect one.”
