Couple Unknowingly Plans Surprise Proposal For Each Other On The Same Day And Place

"... I had no idea she planned to propose, and she had no idea I planned to propose to her! We were both so surprised!!!!"

The only thing better than one surprise wedding proposal is two. Not many couples can pull that off, but Jessa Gillaspie and Becky McCabe found a way ... without even realizing it. 

On May 25, the girlfriends went on a date at "Zoo Brew," a special event at the Memphis Zoo in Tennessee, and stopped to take a few pictures.


That's when McCabe first pulled out an engagement ring and popped the question. In an unexpected response, Gillaspie started jumping up and down before running to grab her purse. 

And that's when she revealed a ring of her own. 

When the couple realized they'd both been planning the same day and place to propose to each other, they burst into hysterical laughter before embracing in a hug. 

The sweet moment of the brides-to-be was all captured on video, which Gillaspie later posted to Facebook on May 27. "... I had no idea she planned to propose, and she had no idea I planned to propose to her! We were both so surprised!!!! We were surrounded by our friends and had the most amazing night. I am the luckiest girl in the world to be able to call her my fiancé," she captioned the Facebook post. 

Since then, the video has received more than 188,000 views and 4,500 likes, eliciting even more surprise from the newly engaged couple. "We had no idea this would blow up so quickly! But I can't say I'm not thrilled, because all I've ever wanted was for Beck and the world to know how much l love her," Gillaspie added in an update to her original post. "We are overwhelmed with all of the positive responses. Really, you guys have no idea how much that means to us!" 

If their surprise engagement is any indication, this couple proves that great minds don't just think, but propose, alike.
