Elaborate proposals might be memorable, but they run a few risks, too. For example — just spitballing here — you might drop the engagement ring into a waterfall.
Such was the fate that befell Isaiah Adams and his girlfriend, Grace, who got engaged at Maryland’s stunning Cunningham Falls State Park.
Unfortunately, after the big “yes” moment (at least they had that, right?), Adams tried to slip the ring onto Grace’s finger … and it fell straight into the water.
“I was crying from happiness, but then I was crying from fear all at the same time,” Grace told Inside Edition in the clip above. Sadly, her fears of losing the ring were founded — it was never recovered.
Still, all is not lost. The couple is still getting married, obviously. And bonus: their mishap may have discouraged more precarious waterfall proposals in the future.
RIP, engagement ring. May your death not be in vain.
