Prior to starting off on their hike, a man from Kabletown, West Virginia, bought an old wooden box at an antique shop, put an engagement ring inside the box and then buried it under a rock in the woods, according to the video’s description.

A West Virginia man staged an elaborate marriage proposal which took place during what his girlfriend thought was a metal detecting hike in the woods

He then took his girlfriend, Lisa, into the woods for her first metal detecting hike. A clever idea as his girlfriend thought that she was witnessing the discovering of what could be a Civil War-era find and was so excited about it!

Before the hike, the man buried a box containing an engagement ring under a rock

The video shot in April 2017 shows the couple stumbling across a signal that leads them to what the man says is a ‘button dating back to the 1800s.’ He then waves a metal detector around a big rock. Getting a signal there, he speculates that it could be a ‘Civil War chest plate or something.’

He then starts to dig beneath the rock with a shovel and his hands, occasionally probing the deepening hole with a carrot-shaped, handheld wand. ‘Is that a root?’ he says as he digs until he eventually reveals the wooden box that he’d buried before.

‘Someone buried this under this rock,’ the man says, telling his extremely patient girlfriend, Lisa, ‘We gotta document this. This could be the find of a lifetime!’

The girlfriend was even more surprised when she realized that the box contained an engagement ring and that she was being proposed to

The man continues to pretend to speculate about what the box could be, describing it as if it’s the first time he’s ever seen it, as she giggles with excitement. She was so surprised when she realized that the box contained an engagement ring and that she was actually being proposed to!

As soon as she realized that she was being proposed to, the woman dropped the camera, which her boyfriend immediately scooped up so he could capture her stunned reaction

Even though she dropped the camera because she was so stunned, her boyfriend immediately scooped it up so he could capture her heartwarming reaction.

The girlfriend was thrilled by the result of her long hike in the woods with her boyfriend 

Freaking out with excitement and surprise, her reaction and when she says ‘yes’ to his proposal is a moment that they will forever treasure!
