Fairytale Marriage Proposal In White Rock

THE CAST WAS AGHAST and the audience enthralled when a fully costumed and effervescent Rocky Raccoon (Jennifer Tiles) was confronted by her prince charming without warning. He leapt onto the stage, sang a song and asked for her hand in marriage. I was able to get a few pictures of the magical event that concluded the Rumplestiltskin play I wrote about earlier. Who would not swoon at such a creative and romantic gesture to start off a wonderful life?

Bravo to the future groom for upstaging everyone with his ingenious, gallant and unforgettable wedding proposal! And bravo to the "beautiful creature" (his words) who won his heart.

Watch that part of the play for yourself on Youtube as it culminates in the proposal at A Raccoon Says YES!.

Although less public and minus the costumes, the event reminded me of my husband’s proposal well over three decades ago. It involved an elaborate treasure hunt scheme with a perfect sparkly diamond ring at the end.

  1. Oh totally cool...that's going to be a story they will tell their grandchildren forever.


  2. What fun to see the proposal happen! I'm glad your camera was ready to catch it. ;)

  3. Proposal of marriage was a happy, serious, once-in-a-lifetime event to me but others’ is just fun to see. You ended last year with hearty laughs, Penelope, and you started this year by making us lauch with your first post. I’ll choose a life full of laughs even if I have more wrinkles at eyes and mouth. Best wishes for your 2014.

  4. What fun. I love it! Great captures of the big moment.

  5. What a fun proposal, really lovely! And yours sounded pretty special too.

  6. Your proposal sounds wonderful! As does this one. As Shakespeare once said, "All the world's a stage..."

  7. Wow! That is very cool. What a story to have and they will love your pictures documenting the event. Your own proposal story is so romantic as well. Happy New Year!

  8. With that start, I'd say they are off to a fun marriage!
