Carlos set a new standard for romantic proposals recently when he popped the question to girlfriend MacKenzie in front of Houston’s Mecom Fountain!
Uptown Diamond had the pleasure of creating their custom engagement ring, and received this letter from the newly engaged couple:
After leaving Miller Outdoor Theater one night early in our relationship, I suggested to Carlos that we pull over and run through Mecom Fountain at the roundabout in front of Hotel ZaZa. I was reminded, however, that my plan (which, by the way, was incredibly romantic!) was likely illegal and we drove on. I was never able to let the subject drop though. How could I? Being in love with Carlos makes me want to do such things like running hand in hand through a fountain at a busy intersection!
Lucky for me, Carlos did not forget about it either. Last Friday, after dinner at Hotel Granduca, Carlos suggested we go for a walk. As we drove down Main Street approaching the fountains, I jokingly asked, “So, are we going to run through the fountains?” To my surprise, I finally got the answer I wanted – “Yes!”.
We parked along the side of the road and then waited for our opportunity to cross the intersection. I had my doubts, but sure enough, we made it to the fountain and Carlos began taking his shoes off. We climbed in, feeling bold and silly, and Carlos proposed to me as we stood in the fountain laughing.
I cannot think of a better place, or moment, for Carlos to propose. We came full circle that night standing in the fountain in the middle of the roundabout, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with this man who climbs into fountains for me.
Thank you to Uptown Diamond for helping to “seal the deal” 🙂
All the best,
MacKenzie & Carlos
