When rock climber, Luis Cardona decided to proposal to his girlfriend Maddy Thorpe in December, he wanted to make it as memorable as possible and with the help of photographer India Earl, he managed to pull off an engagement that takes our breath away!
Luis explained to the Huffington Post, “Climbing is a huge part of me and Maddy’s lives. When we first met that’s basically all we did and we love climbing together whenever we get the chance.”
So, when Maddy reached the top of her climb, Luis turned all the lights out and got the help of friends and family to decorate the floor with lights, candles and rose petals.
“At first Maddy was a little frightened because she was hanging up there in the air in the pitch black! After she realized what was going on she started to cry. Then as I lowered her down and asked [her to marry me], she started laugh-crying or craughing as we call it. She was pretty stoked on it and of course I was too.”
As Maddy descended, Luis played their song – First Day of My Life by Bright Eyes.
