"Will you marry..." *Splash*
Charlotte man Matthew Picca, 25, had planned a romantic wedding proposal to his longtime girlfriend, Kayla Harrity, 24. While vacationing with her and her family in Southpost, North Carolina, he would get down on one knee after they dined at the Old American Fish bar and restaurant, located right on the Intracoastal Waterway. He would pop the question and present her with a gorgeous engagement ring—a pear-shaped diamond, mounted in rose gold, according to The State Port Pilot.
But things didn't go as planned.
"Matthew got down on one knee at our favorite place in South Port tonight," Harrity said on Facebook, alongside photos of the moment. "Just as he opened the ring box, the ring fell out of the box and thru the crack on the deck."
"For the record, I didn't drop it," Picca told The State Port Pilot. The ring fell!"
"I didn't even get to see it," Harrity told the newspaper.
