A Memphis couple’s proposal video filmed by friends has gone viral. It has been viewed over 16,000 times on Facebook.
The Memphis Zoo is a special place for Becky McCabe and Jessa Gillaspie because they had gone there on their first date. The happy pair met each other on the campus of the University of Memphis. Two years ago, they had attended Zoo Brew at the Memphis Zoo. Zoo Brew went on hiatus last year but returned this year. Unknown to either of them, they had each brought rings to propose to the other.
Jessa Gillaspie posted video of the dual proposal on Facebook.
A friend Erica Kessler promised to help Becky McCabe with proposal plans and record the moment of proposal. Kessler filmed the exchange and in the video, Becky McCabe is seen getting on one knee to propose. Jessa Gillaspie breaks out into hysterical laughter as she reaches into her bag for a ring box as well. They had not known the other was planning to propose on this date.
They are very pleased to have others share in their happy moment and public declaration of love for each other.
The happy couple plans to get married by next summer when McCabe finishes her doctorate program at the University of Memphis. If this fortuitous coincidence is any indication, they are on the same wavelength with each other and how they want to spend the rest of their lives together. Congratulations and many happy returns to you both!
