A Stranger Catches This Breathtaking Utah Engagement!

joe-heidiIt was just yesterday when Jon & Heidi came into Malka Diamonds in downtown Portland Oregon.  The two were smiling from ear to ear.  They had just returned from a memorable trip to Moab, Utah.  They shared their story with us and we were blown away.  We asked them to send over some pictures and details about the engagement.  Here is what Jon sent this morning...."A little bit about our proposal story...Heidi and I had a week vacation in Moab, Utah last week and I knew I wanted to propose on one of the hikes in the National Parks there. Last Wednesday we decided to go on a hike to one of the more notable rock arches in Arches National Park and I decided sometime on this 3 mile hike I would propose...preferably in front of the arch with a beautiful vista. Neither of us had ever been here so we had no idea of the beauty of it. The hike up towards the arch was full of beautiful red rock and canyon views and felt like we were hiking to the top of the world. joe-heidi-archWe came around a bend on the trail and then there was Delicate Arch in front of us....breathtaking, enormous, and with a perfect blue sky and scenery behind it. I knew this was the place. I had Heidi and I walk towards the arch and told her I wanted to get a picture of us. It so happened that on the walk over, a man asked us if we would like him to take a picture of us. I said yes and after Heidi was posed for the photo I reached down in my backpack and picked up the ring that was hidden in its box with some hiking socks wrapped around it. I got down on my knee and proposed....Heidi was so surprised and full of joy...and said yes. Our photographer stranger/friend was equally surprised but took several photos of the proposal which we're so lucky to have. Heidi loves the ring we got at your store.."  Thank you Jon & Heidi for sharing this magical moment with us.  We are honored to be part of this engagement utah amazing story.  Congratulations to you both on your recent engagement.  We can't wait to see the wedding pictures! - David & Ronnie Malka
