When the love of your life, your BFF is graduating from College, you stop and ask yourself, what is the best gift I can give ? Well that is what Blake was thinking about and he did not have to think too hard to find the perfect gift….
Here is their story….
On June 27, 2014 Karla was graduating from Keiser University. Karla’s dad was in town for the first time in 5 years as he would not miss this important day, family was present at the graduation. Karla’s dad dropped her and Blake off to prepare for graduation. As the students practiced their entrance and exit, the Dean of the school made an announcement and stated that before he starts letting people in for the graduation, there was a special speaker with a few words to say.
At this time Karla focused her eyes on the aisle and saw Blake walking down the aisle towards the stage. Karla was looking around wondering why is he walking on the stage. Once he reached the stage he spoke in the microphone and said, “Hello everyone my name is Blake and I want to say a few things about my girlfriend Karla.” Everyone turned around wondering who is Karla and soon they figured it out as Blake addressed Karla. Karla remembers that Blake spoke the most amazing and sweetest things about her. One of the teachers asked Karla to stand up and walk on to the stage. Karla shared, with planner Rosie Moore, that at this point she was at a loss for words, she was in shock that Blake would speak freely about his love for her in front of so many people because Blake is very reserved.
When Karla walked on the stage, Blake got down on one knee and asked Karla to marry him. Karla shared that she was still in shock and had forgotten to answer him and everyone in the room was screaming “SAY YES” and then of course she said yes and they walked off the stage. Karla shares that this proposal was a total surprise and the most memorable proposal she’s ever seen.
Love makes us do things that are sometimes out of our comfort zone when it comes to surprising the one we love all in the name of Romance. We have had grooms sing for their brides, grooms bring in Disney characters, roses, and so many other things that create the element of surprise…..
When you are in love, don’t ever think that an idea is silly. If you truly love that special someone, do not worry that you are singing off-key, do not fear that you are not good at public speaking, just love that person enough to say I love you and I will travel the ends of the world for you and if that means getting on a stage front of people I don’t know to say that I Love you I will…..
