Virginia Barnette Driftmier & Kyle Logan Pido

How did he propose? :

Kyle surprised me by taking me up in a small privately flown airplane in New Orleans during the day on New Years Eve 2015. As we flew over the city we had champagne and chocolate ready for us in the back of the aircraft. After we landed he took me to a beautiful secluded park in the Garden District of New Orleans. We walked together for a little while and then sat on a bench that had a plaque on it that said “Dedicated to lovers everywhere.” I looked away at something in the park and when I turned back around he had gotten down on one knee and was holding my great grandmother’s engagement ring. As I started crying he asked me to marry him!
