EDMONTON, Canada — Some proposals are unforgettable while others are completely forgettable, but very few come close to Christine Peters and Stephen Martin’s story.
On May 27, Peters and Martin boarded a hot air balloon with about 10 other people, CTV reports. Riding in a hot air balloon happened to be one of Peters’ childhood dreams and a perfect place to propose.
While on the balloon, Martin popped the question and asked Peters to marry him.
That’s when the balloon hit a tree about 30 feet off the ground. The pilot was able to free it before hitting another tree and crashing into a farmer’s field.
Luckily, no one was seriously injured.
In the end, Martin says he is happy they’re both safe and she said “yes.”
