Ali was so nervous that he woke up at 4am and told Caroline it was due to jetlag since they had just arrived from Dubai 2 days earlier.
During lunch, he kept drinking more champagne to build up his courage & calm his nerves. But as the horse & carriage dropped them off, he spilled champagne all over himself, the proposal words he wanted left his mind as the acapella group sang “Unchained Melody” & he placed the ring on the wrong finger.
But it didn’t matter. Caroline loved him & said yes because she remembered that during their 1st date, she spilled wine all over him.
Maybe it’s his French laissez-faire attitude, but I love Ali’s gracious motto: “it’s all about accepting the other person just as they are. Flaws & all.”
