How much would you put up with in the name of love? Obviously, this man's fiancée has the patience of a saint, because she was able to weather his practical jokes and antics throughout one very emotional evening.
It turns out, Jordan Halland was planning on proposing to his girlfriend, Summer, but found out she had caught wind of the plans. So he decided to give her the runaround and try and shake off any suspicion.
And it was quite the performance!
It starts out with him setting up a camera at his house, before taking his girlfriend out to eat. Once she is ready to go, he kneels down in front of her, says "I wanted to do this later but I think I should just do it now," and then.....ties his shoe.
Okay, she was a little miffed, but they laugh it off and head out for their dinner.
They get to their favorite restaurant and before their food gets to the table, he stands up and makes an announcement to the whole dining room.
"Excuse me," he says. "On our first date, we came here because we love sushi." But then.... "And we still love sushi. Thank you."
Oh dear! I couldn't imagine holding out much longer. But this devious guy had one more trick up his sleeve...
How could you possibly top a public almost-engagement? Jordan found a way.
They leave the restaurant and go to get a cup of coffee, but unfortunately Java, the cafe, was closed. Taking a detour through the park, they come across a band playing their favorite song. It was magical, with the streetlamps lit, the autumn leaves on the ground, they leaned in together, and kissed in the sight of all this beauty.
Then he pulls away and says those 5 magical words. "I'm bummed Java was closed," before leading her away.
At this point, he's lucky she didn't just keep on walking. But sure enough, he takes her to the waterfront, a spot neither of them had been before, and realizes that this is now or never.
"I wanted it to be special," he says. "But this is a special spot, because this is where I ask you to be my wife."
And what did she say?
The word she had been waiting to say all evening, "Yes!"
