After months of planning, this is where Michael decided he was going to ask Lauren to marry him. He made a plan, bought the ring, plane tickets, and hired a photographer. It was going to be perfect.

Michael walked with Lauren to this waterfall. He thought this would be the perfect place to pop the question.

One last deep breath as he prepared.

It started with a whisper, "Is this the most beautiful sight you've ever seen?" he says gently.

Of course it was and that wasn't all. She turned to see the love of her life, the most handsome man, down on his knee holding a dazzling ring that was meant for her.

"Yes, yes, absolutely, yes!"

But WAIT ... the ring fumbles. It leaves Michael's hands and flies into the air. It falls down the cliffside.

This is her "It's gone forever. It's over a cliff and into the ocean" face.

"I was SO close" She thinks with her entire heart is in her stomach.

It took some time for Lauren to realize that the ring drop was a joke. Michael was a little too calm for a man that had dropped a diamond ring over a cliff $$$

It was NOT the real ring after all. It was an imposter ring.
