Surprise Marriage Proposal in North Grafton, MA

Last weekend I got a call to play the violin for a surprise proposal.  The man on the phone was so endearing – very nice and wanted nothing more than to make this moment special for his girlfriend.  He told me that his girlfriend absolutely loved the violin and that he thought she would really appreciate this.  He suggested that I play Vocalise by Rachmaninoff, which is one of my favorite violin pieces.

When I arrived at their apartment, I tuned the violin right outside my car and then he led me into the apartment entrance, where he sprinkled some rose petals on the ground.  He had invited all of his friends to surprise his girlfriend afterward – and they were all waiting outside in suspense.

I began to play and his girlfriend came downstairs to see what all the commotion was about.  He got down on one knee – and asked her to marry him.  It was simple and straight forward and she said yes without hesitation.  We all went upstairs to their apartment afterward to celebrate the occasion.  All of their close friends were there with food and laughter.  It warmed my heart to be a part of such a special day for them.
