Josie & Rudy’s Mount Bonnell Proposal + Surprise Party


What a reaction! Josie couldn’t contain her happiness and SURPRISE when Rudy asked her to marry him this weekend!

Here’s the story…

They live in San Antonio, and Rudy asked if she’d be interested in going to Austin for the day with their friends Jackie & Cesar. Good thing she said “yes”, because he already had a huge plan set in motion.

They spent the day hanging out in Austin, and after eating dinner, Jackie randomly suggested they go check out Mount Bonnell before sunset. As they all climbed the stairs to the top of the mountain, Jackie said she forget something in the car, so her and Cesar left as Josie & Rudy continued along the trail.

When they got to the perfect spot, Rudy asked her to come out to the ledge, they enjoyed the view together, and suddenly, he dropped to one knee.

She. was. shocked.

It was incredible to see her reaction! Their plans for the day had felt so fluid and spur-of-the-moment, so she never saw it coming.

And there was another surprise on the way! When they left, Rudy blindfolded her, and drove them to an Airbnb he had rented for a surprise party. He walked her up to the home’s amazing backyard pool overlooking the hill country, and as he took off her blindfold, she saw that all of her friends were waiting there to surprise her!

Rudy, you totally nailed it. Congratulations, you two!
