On June 21, 2012 Kara was getting ready to go to the Woodloch staff show with her friends and family as she has done every Thursday night for the past 15 years. Little did she know, her night was about to become much more special then she could ever imagine.
Connor, who has been accompanying Kara on her family vacation for a few years now, has known for quite some time that he would propose at Woodloch. Connor also knew he was going to propose to Kara before her 22nd birthday, which happened to be that very next day. Knowing Kara would love a public proposal, he figured there would be no better way than to propose to Kara on stage after the staff show in front of all her family and some close friends. With her birthday just hours away, it was the perfect way to disguise the proposal that was about to take place.
After the last song Kara and Connor were called up on stage where Kara was presented with a birthday cake, and Connor was given the microphone. Kara claims she had no idea what was coming. She remembers Connor acting a bit strange and fidgety during the staff show, getting up to go to the restroom numerous times, but she just thought he wasn’t feeling well. Even when she saw the small paper bag in his hands she convinced herself it was just a birthday gift. Connor then proceeded to tell his and Kara’s story to the audience while expressing his love for Kara. She still thought that this was just his way of wishing her a very public happy birthday. Then, Connor got down on one knee.
Although there were hundreds of people watching, Kara remembers it as if they were the only two people in the room! She was completely surprised and swept off her feet.
Kara remarked, "I have grown up at Woodloch, and I consider it to be a second home so it truly was the perfect engagement with the perfect ring and the perfect guy."
Woodloch would like to congratulate Kara and Connor once again and wish them the best of luck in the future!!
