Keli and Carmelo’s proposal is one they will never forget.
The couple had planned a holiday to Melbourne to visit some friends in July 2017. Both Kelsi and Carmelo love skydiving, so Kelsi booked a jump for one of the days. Unfortunately, on the day it was raining and very windy so the jump was cancelled. They got a call for the go-ahead to jump the next day and Carmelo was quiet the entire drive there. Carmelo went first, then two others, then Kelsi. Once Kelsi landed her instructor told her to turn around to where Carmelo was – down on one knee in front of a very large sign that said: “Will You Marry Me”.
“I couldn’t stop crying. It was so unexpected and it made the moment so much more special. Carmelo was more worried I was going to say no because he thought I would have seen the sign before landing. As I said before, never a dull moment in our lives!”
