It is correctly said that love has no limits. This has been proven by Shawn Wright of Calgary, Alberta, who did this to propose his love.
We really imagine how far one will further go to express his love to someone.
But yes, standards have surely been raised by this man.
Wright had proposed his fiance, Maylynn Stephenson, on their trip to Barcelona last year. They have known each other for 20 years and have been together since the last 6 years. The beach side proposal was incredible and had followed a day of skydiving, but the man wanted to do more for her.
That day he didn't have a ring, so had to use a stand-by. But, he then started collecting money to do something big. He strapped the ring to a wooden spatula and then tied it to a high altitude weather balloon.
After it was launched, it traveled the ring to breach the stratosphere and then landed 300 km away from where it flew. At the edge of a pond in Taber, Alta, Wright found the ring and then showed the video to his fiancee.
"Her mind was blown. She didn't know I even had the real ring." Wright said in a video, "For the past few months I haven't really been working late, and I haven't been working weekends. I have been working on a secret project for you."
"As soon as I started saving up for the real ring, I started thinking, 'What could I do?'", Wright told The Huffington Post Alberta. In order to launch the ring he built a specialized craft that would safely carry the ring and bring it back to somewhere near its starting point.
"I love you very much, and I really hope you think it's out of this world." Stephenson had agreed then and was much delighted. The couple will tie the knot in Bali this year.
