A sweet idea for a proposal turned into a hilarious snafu the happy couple will never forget.
Colton Brownlee was ready to ask girlfriend Julie Palmer to marry him. He planned the whole day out. Colton was going to ask Julie while she was docking her boat on Lake Como in Wisconsin.
The boat proposal went down on September 26. He gathered friends and lined them up on the bank. Each had one word on their t-shirt, which ended up spelling out “Julie, will you marry me?”
Julie pulls up to dock her boat but finds another in her spot. Colton decides this is his chance. He stepped onto the second boat to bring Julie ashore.
Julie was completely surprised as he got down on one day. She said yes and leans forward to kiss Colton. In doing so, Julie accidentally hit the boat’s throttle.
In an instant, Julie’s boat flies forward, knocking her over before crashing into the bank. Colton gets knocked off the second boat into the water. One of their friends, filming from near shore, almost falls into the water as well.
Thankfully, everyone was able to have a good laugh at it after the fact. No one was hurt. The boat was fine. Most importantly, Colton held on to the ring box through his fall. The story isn’t storybook perfection, but it’s one the couple will never forget.
