What began as a “baby bump photo shoot” in San Francisco’s Alamo Square turned into a surprise wedding proposal with the help of an unlikely ally, a ring-delivering hexacopter drone.
Early on a cool spring day, the first Sunday in April, before the crowds of tourists gathered, Jason Muscat took his girlfriend Christina Dam to the park to take photographs before baby day.
“Anything you want to say to our little baby, Angelina?” Muscat asked. Looking into the video camera, Dam, seven months pregnant, said, “Angelina, I can’t wait for you to be part of our lives.”
The couple laughed and joked about their upcoming “babymoon” to Las Vegas, when they noticed a small flying copter swinging into view. You can hear Muscat say “WHAT is that!?” in a YouTube video that documents the event. As it got closer, Dam realized there was a ring box taped to its center. It landed on the grass and Muscat popped open the lid. Ring in hand, drone at his side, he asked Dam to marry him.
