A Really BIG Proposal

Billboard Proposal

A Really BIG Proposal

Most guys go to the jewelry store, pick out the ring, take their future fiance out to dinner and pop the question.

Jonathan, a 21 year old student at Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadephia did just that this past Tuesday except in a really big way. He got a limo, a top notch dinner, a Tacori ring, and that cool digital billboard on 630 in Little Rock with the words, “Brooke, will you marry me? Love, Jonathan.”

As thousands of evening commuters drove through the busy highway – Jonathan removed Brooke’s blindfold, pointed to the huge bright digital red sign just southeast of Fair Park Blvd., dropped to one knee in the stretch limo and proposed marriage.

And after a teary eyed shocked and surprised moment, she paused and said … YES.

“I had no idea,” Brooke, 21, said after being whisked to the billboard in a limousine. “I was really shocked … I just thought we were going to dinner and a movie.”

“Everybody will remember it,” said a jubilant and somewhat relieved Jonathan. “She’ll remember it, forever, and that’s what important.”

Jonathan and Brooke’s romance began about a year and a half ago when they met while attending school at Ouachita Baptist University.

To find the ring they searched the internet at www.jonesandson.com and she found the ring of her dreams. The ring she selected was a beautiful Tacori platinum ring. Jonathan went to Little Rock to purchase the ring at Jones & Son Diamond & Bridal Fine Jewelry and that’s where he met one of the Jones’s .

Little did he know that when he told Jones he needed a unique way to pop the question and really ‘wow’ Brooke that he would suggest a billboard proposing marriage and his family jewelry company, Jones & Son, would take care of everything.

Tuesday’s event helped promote a service the company has launched in which men buying engagement rings can get advice and assistance from the company in how to best “pop the question.”

“(Jonathan) wanted to do something really special for her.” said Mr. Jones, of Jones & Son , “He wanted something to really ‘wow’ her.”

After the proposal they were wisked away in a stretch Cadillac limo that was provided by Paradise Carriages Limosine Service www.paradiselimousineofarkansas.com and then on to a romantic dinner at Jerry Barakat’s Blue Agave in Chenal.
