NEW HAVEN, Conn. — It started with a walk in West Rock State Park. Adelia Dunbar and Amber Baysinger had been there before. But this wasn’t like any other walk. On this walk, Amber was going to propose.
A YouTube video shows Adelia and Amber coming across a chair and table set up with a laptop. An emotional Adelia sits down and sees a prompt on the screen asking her to press play. Well, she did — and got the surprise of her life.
Amber had asked family and friends to play a part in her heartwarming proposal video for Adelia. According to WTIC, she started planning it about a month earlier. Family and friends from New York to Texas sent in their video clips and photos. They were all compiled together and encouraged Adelia to say yes to Amber’s proposal. And she did say yes at the end of the YouTube video.
“What I thought was a routine hike turned out to be the most beautifully planned surprise I’ve ever experienced! The love of my life proposed and I said yes! I can’t even begin to express the gratitude I have for everything you do for me and for the bond that we share,” Adelia wrote on Facebook.
Amber and Adelia have been together for about two years. They live in Hamden, Conn., with their dogs Winston and Renny.
