Man Captures Breathtaking Mountaintop Proposal With Drone

iStock/Thinkstock(LINVILLE, N.C.) -- One man, quite literally, shouted his love for his now-fiancé from the mountaintops this weekend.

Jordan Nelson, of Boone, North Carolina, captured his absolutely breathtaking proposal atop MacRae Peak on Grandfather Mountain with a drone.

“Our first date was to the exact same spot three years ago yesterday,” Nelson, 27, told ABC News. “We hiked there again for our one-year anniversary. And one month in we camped out on top of the mountain at the highest peak, Calloway Peak. We spent a lot of time on top of Grandfather Mountain. That’s why I wanted to go back to that spot for the proposal.”

Needless to say, he made the right choice.

His bride-to-be, Meghan Frye, had absolutely no idea the proposal was coming because Nelson is as an aerial drone videographer and always has his camera with them on hikes.

“She didn’t have the slightest clue,” he said of her surprise. “I normally film and take pictures along the way. I do drone stuff for a living so she didn’t think anything of it when I took the drone.”

As he bent to one knee amid the stunning scenery, at first she thought he was pulling a late April Fools' prank.

Their love is no joke though, and now the happy couple is planning a beautiful wedding for fall 2017. They’re even hoping to keep the gorgeous mountain theme going.

“For the wedding venue, we really want to do it at Linville Ridge Country Club,” said Nelson. “It’s on the mountain peaks across from Grandfather. We want it on top of that mountain with Grandfather in the background.”

Now we’re just curious if “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” will be their first dance song.

California anticipates much-needed rain this week after catastrophic wildfires

California anticipates much-needed rain this week after catastrophic wildfiresGoogle Earth(NEW YORK) -- Ravaged by a slew of deadly wildfires in recent days, northern California is set to get a bit of relief this week in the form of rain.

A storm system is expected to move over the Pacific Northwest later this week and the trailing cold front will most likely bring some much-needed rain to northern California between Thursday and Friday, according to ABC meteorologists.

"It will rain a bit but not enough to fully douse the blazes," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Ken Clark said in a statement Tuesday. "The biggest advantage to firefighters will be the increase in humidity and lower temperatures."

Massive wildfires have charred more than 245,000 acres of land statewide in the past week, killing at least 41 people and destroying thousands of homes, according to authorities.

Firefighters were battling about a dozen wildfires as of late Tuesday evening, although most of them were more than halfway contained.

“The weather today will be warm with low humidity, which will continue to challenge firefighters, but only light winds are forecast,” CalFire said in a statement on Tuesday. “A chance of precipitation is expected to arrive later in the week, bringing relief from the dry conditions.”

The northern parts of the Golden State, which has bared the brunt of the fire damage, is forecast to see an influx of cloudy, cooler and wetter weather later in the week, according to AccuWeather.

However, a return of dry air, heat and areas of gusty winds could once again raise the wildfire danger early next week, meteorologists said.

Separately, a band of moisture, referred to as Atmospheric River by weather experts, is currently stretching between Asia and North America. It’s expected to bring several storm systems into many parts of the Pacific Northwest through the rest of the week.

The first of these storms have already hit the Pacific Northwest with wind gusts of between 40 and 74 mph.

A number of wind warnings and flood watches are in effect in the western and northern parts of the U.S. ahead of the storm.
