AP Proposal: Melissa + Paul

Kunbi O / Wednesday June 5, 2013
Melissa and Paul through the years.
We recently made a submissions call on Instagram for super romantic proposals and the response has been amazing. Today, we have one for the romantic books. A Miami baseball game proposal so cute even the Mascots were in on it. Enjoy!

From the Bride:

My high school sweetheart proposed to me on April 17, 2013 which was our 13 year {yes 13 years!} anniversary of dating. Amazing does not begin to describe what happened that day…

He had told me {along with telling a bunch of people from our families so they could be present} that to honor him for mascoting for the university for 10 years, he was throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at a University of Miami baseball game. He invited me to stand with him as he did so. Of course I was more than happy to since this was his moment! But, little did I know that when 

I went out to the mound with him, that wasn’t the case! The announcer had me turn to the video board where a slide show began with past pictures of us! {To the tune of: She’s Some Kind of Wonderful} Paul, my fiancé, told me halfway thru not to turn back around until the announcer said my name. When I was able to turn, there he was on bended knee along side UM’s 2 mascots-Sebastian the Ibis and The Miami Maniac!! I was so surprised!! 

Best part is only 3 family members knew he was gonna pop the question, so the reactions on the sidelines are priceless!! And as an added bonus, my future brother in law caught it all on camera! Talk about a dream proposal!!  

Check out the video of the Proposal

Love! Congrats Melissa and Paul and Thank You for sharing your Love Story with us.
