Floating in the clouds with BRYAN and MONIQUE

IT WAS BACK IN September 2016 that JONATHAN BRYAN SALCEDO announced to his best friend that he would be proposing to his love, MONIQUE ASHLEY MARTINEZ, in between their birthdays in February 2017. It would be a tricky achievement for Bryan as it was imperative that Monique be completely surprised by his move and her family had to be there to celebrate the special occasion with them.

This prompted Bryan and his friends to think up a proposal that would be “high in the sky”, literally. So the groom-to-be coordinated with the professional paragliding pilots at Paragliding Philippines to achieve a proposal 1,000 feet above ground. He worked closely with the company to develop the plan, down to the contingencies to make sure that all bases were covered.

Came the big day, the couple’s group of friends gathered in Carmona under the guise of free passes to a paragliding session. Unbeknownst Monique, everyone else in their party was already in on the plan and had already been briefed on what was to follow. The plan of six parachutes in the air had to cut down to three due to wind conditions, but Bryan was prepared for Plan B. The couple got on separate parachutes and while midflight, Bryan showed Monique a tarp that said “Will you marry me?”

At first Monique didn’t even believe it, asking if Bryan was serious in his proposal. To which Bryan cheekily replied, “Bakit, ayaw mo ba?” And the bride-to-be said yes. Bryan landed first and Monique’s pilot landed her in front of him, at which time he fished the ring from his pocket, went down on bended knee and proposed, all of which happened while there were petals falling from the sky. Undoubtedly, Bryan took Monique’s breath up, up, and away!
