They were next to Mesa Falls when Zaden proposed.
It was not a typical proposal. It was something that made Courtney's heart literally skip a beat.
The video of Zaden's proposal was uploaded on TikTok. It has garnered more than one million views, after more than a week.
The Viral Video
In the viral video, Zaden went down on one knee and was seen as having difficulty kneeling. As he was trying to show the box to Courtney, he "accidentally dropped" the ring down the cliff.

Courtney was very shocked and was gasping to the camera. She went to the other side of the cliff and looked down for the box.
Zaden was still kneeling was also trying to suppress his laughter.
Courtney was pointing to Zaden the location of the box. After a few seconds, Zaden once again knelt and began popping the question.
It was all part of Zaden's proposal!
He wanted to prank his girlfriend first before asking the question. The box that fell does not have the ring, after all.
