Man proposes in hot air balloon over Franklin

Posted: Updated:
FRANKLIN, Tenn. -

A Cookeville woman got the surprise of her life after her now-fiance popped the question during a hot air balloon ride.

Nicholas Leak proposed to Sarah Hayes last weekend while they were riding in the balloon over Franklin, Tennessee.

Nicholas and Sarah met two and a half years ago by accident through a mutual friend.

Nicholas told News 2 they dated long distance for a while and grew closer to one another.

Both had always wanted to fly in a hot air balloon, so he booked the flight with TN Balloon as a surprise.

He hid the ring in a special steel rose inside a camera case, then got down on one knee toward the end of the flight.

Sarah said yes.

The couple says they have yet to set a date.
