I feel very honored every time a couple offer to share their marriage proposal story with me. It’s an incredibly personal moment in a couples lives and something to be celebrated. So I’m really pleased to introduce today the story of Brent and Sarah’s magic show proposal. They agreed to be interviewed so the following is their story in their own words…Oh and don’t forget to watch the video!
Please introduce yourselves guys.
We are Brent Nicholls & Sarah Salomons.
So how did the proposal go down? What did you have planned and how did you pull it off?
I wanted to do something fun and memorable for the proposal and this just seemed like a good fit. I want through so many different ideas throughout several months but than finally figured out exactly what I wanted to do.
It was the end of the summer and Sarah was about to leave for England to visit her best friend who lives over there. It was also my last show of the summer and so the timing all worked out perfectly. Because it was the last show of the summer I was able to invite a bunch of our friends and family without Sarah being suspicious. She just thought everyone was there to see the show. But everyone knew that I was going to propose except for Sarah and my dad (he wouldn’t have been able to keep the secret without somehow giving it away!)
The show took place on the last day of summer on the night before all kids had to go back to school so there wasn’t much of an audience there. Every other day there was an audience of about 300 at the very least, but for this last show it was mostly just friends and family which turned out to be really nice.
I did the whole show exactly the same as I did every week except for when it came to the very last trick which was cut short and that’s when I brought Sarah up on stage. The only other big difference was how nervous I was the whole time I was doing the show. It was in the back of my mind the whole time and I couldn’t believe that it was happening tonight!
After Sarah said yes we all celebrated with everyone who had come to the show and the next day as planned Sarah flew out to England where she got to surprise her best friend by showing her the ring and asking her to be her maid of honor.
Thankfully Sarah loved the way in which I proposed and loves that she can watch the video anytime. It was such a happy night and a great beginning to the rest of our lives together.
Thanks so much for sharing your story today guys. I hope it provides a little inspiration to any of you guys out there planning something unique of your own. Heck if you need a magician to help you along then why not ask Brent himself at www.incredibrent.com… After all, he has perfect experience!
