(LINVILLE, N.C.) — One man, quite literally, shouted his love for his now-fiancé from the mountaintops this weekend.
Jordan Nelson, of Boone, North Carolina, captured his absolutely breathtaking proposal atop MacRae Peak on Grandfather Mountain with a drone.
“Our first date was to the exact same spot three years ago yesterday,” Nelson, 27, told ABC News. “We hiked there again for our one-year anniversary. And one month in we camped out on top of the mountain at the highest peak, Calloway Peak. We spent a lot of time on top of Grandfather Mountain. That’s why I wanted to go back to that spot for the proposal.”
Needless to say, he made the right choice.
His bride-to-be, Meghan Frye, had absolutely no idea the proposal was coming because Nelson is as an aerial drone videographer and always has his camera with them on hikes.
“She didn’t have the slightest clue,” he said of her surprise. “I normally film and take pictures along the way. I do drone stuff for a living so she didn’t think anything of it when I took the drone.”
As he bent to one knee amid the stunning scenery, at first she thought he was pulling a late April Fools’ prank.
Their love is no joke though, and now the happy couple is planning a beautiful wedding for fall 2017. They’re even hoping to keep the gorgeous mountain theme going.
“For the wedding venue, we really want to do it at Linville Ridge Country Club,” said Nelson. “It’s on the mountain peaks across from Grandfather. We want it on top of that mountain with Grandfather in the background.”
Now we’re just curious if “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” will be their first dance song.
