The Mermaid Proposal : Most Creative Proposal Ever!

The mermaid proposal was the most outrageous and creative proposal ever!

Surprise Proposal: Horse Trek with Wild Coast Ruapuke

The highlight of our trip was the horse trek with Wild Coast Ruapuke. BEN!, Iris and I rode horses across the black sand beach of Ruapuke. Imagine our surprise when we came across a cluster of mermaids perched on the rocks.

Of course, we got off the horses to get a closer look.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.

So I’ll leave you with these.

    I was wondering when history was going to repeat itself! (I was hopeful this would happen. Ben! seems like a wonderful young man.) Congratulations to both families – you are indeed blessed.

    I’m OVER THE MOON right now for them! I always joked about when I’d receive my invite to their wedding. So happy for them! God bless!!!

    How amazing! Such a sweet boy. I literally squealed and clapped with glee for them. I’m sure they will have many, many happy years to come!

    Oh my word. Now THAT is a unique proposal!!! 🙂 I can’t believe they THREW the ring!

    I’m thrilled for Adalia and for all of you; to think of you having a married child does funny things to my brain.

    Can’t wait to hear more! 🙂

      The mermaids where three of BEN!’s friends. The girl in the blue shirt (no mermaid costume) is his sister, Claire.
