April 8th, 2021

Are you one of these people who just love good and original “Will you marry me?” ideas? Do you enjoy watching proposal videos just because you cannot get enough of the romance and the “cheesiness?”.

Well, if that is the case, our story today is just the thing for you. A video was posted with one of the most beautiful and clever marriage proposals you have ever seen, and as you will see in the video the bride-to-be was totally surprised!

What was really original about this marriage proposal was the whole setting and the people involved. You can find many videos online with grooms going sometimes to rather extreme situations or plotting really fancy scenarios in order to propose.

However, the groom in our story just decided to pop the question to his beloved at their workplace, hardly original, right? Well, wrong! Jon Holt and Iris Howorth are both teachers in the same High School.

So, Jon decided to involve the whole teaching staff and student body in his proposal plan!

At the first moments in the video, we can see Jon setting the scene with the help of his bride’s students and some staff members. He even gave each student a Ring Pop as part of the plan.

The proposal was to take place during Iris’ lesson and the students had a very important role in the execution of the proposal plan.

Everything was finally ready, a camera was placed at the back end of the classroom in order to capture the whole emotional scene. Here, enters the bride totally unaware of what is going to happen, thinking that it would be just another normal school day.

The class starts and the lesson is rolling, when one by one all the students start getting on one knee asking Iris “Will you marry me?”, offering her a Ring Pop!

Poor Iris is so surprised but at the same time amused with what’s happening that she surely is thinking that the kids are pranking her.

Well, any confusion in her mind is cleared when suddenly the classroom door opens and Jon enters, causing Iris to gasp in surprise!

He immediately gets on his knee himself in front of her and pops the big question to which Iris, of course, answers “YES” and the class erupts in applauds and cheers.

As Holt told Inside Edition, “I wanted to make a big production out of it, and I wanted to involve the Chalmette High School community as a sort of tribute to all that they have given us over the years.”

The classroom door opens only to reveal the school band ready to congratulate them and you can see them walking down the school corridors, filled with music and balloons, with Jon looking all smug and happy, and Iris not able to contain her happiness.
