Jewelry Store Surprises Firefighter In Unique Event
Some people love surprises, some people hate them. To me it always seems to be more fun to be the person planning the surprise which is why I decided to tag along when the engagement jewelry store Robbins Brothers decided to help young bride-to-be Christin Mora enact a little friendly revenge on her fiance. Michael Knobbe, a reserve firefighter in Vernon, California had proposed by pulling up in a firetruck with a 23-foot long "marry me" sign. The proposal later appeared in a Robbins Brothers commercial. But Knobbe, who recently returned from Iraq got a big surprise last week when he thought he was heading off to a fire (at the fire station no less) only to find his fiancee and the folks from Robbins Brothers waiting on a second floor balcony with wedding rings. Perhaps the most fun part of watching the surprise was the delight the Vernon firefighters took in setting it up. A smoke machine poured fake smoke onto the balcony creating a convincing spectacle. Convincing enough to fool a very confused Knobbe who climbed up to the balcony in full firefighter gear only to be greeted with laughter, balloons and TV cameras. He took it all in good stride and seemed to appreciate the fact that his wife-to-be has a great sense of humor too. I'm predicting a very lively marriage for these two. Check out the cuteness in the video above.
