Brinkley meticulously planned to propose to Tanner at the resort where they were set to attend a friend’s wedding. However, wanting to keep the surprise intact and out of respect for the newlyweds, he decided to wait until the appropriate moment.

As the plane soared through the sky, Brinkley engaged in a casual conversation with a fellow passenger about his impending proposal. Unbeknownst to him, a Delta Air Lines flight attendant overheard their discussion. Recognizing the opportunity to create a truly memorable experience, the flight crew and other passengers joined forces to orchestrate an impromptu proposal at 30,000 feet above the ground.

With the flight attendant acting as the mastermind behind this love-filled plan, the atmosphere inside the cabin buzzed with anticipation. Passengers eagerly exchanged knowing glances and suppressed smiles, ready to witness a heartwarming milestone.

With a mix of nerves and excitement, Brinkley dropped to one knee, presenting a glistening engagement ring. As Tanner walked out the bathroom, she was presented with the loving surprise.
