Amazing Surprise Proposal
My boyfriend surprised me with a sunrise hot air balloon ride over Charlottesville with Boar’s Head Ballooning, and not only that, he proposed to me at over 1000 feet! My boyfriend and Rick had been in cahoots to plan this for a while and I think it went perfectly! It was the most amazing and romantic experience I’ve ever had. Rick and Boris are an amazing team, I felt safe in their capable hands and we enjoyed working with them and getting to know them throughout our adventure. We were blessed with good company, perfect weather, and a soft landing! Rick and Boris both took amazing pictures that we will always cherish from this special day. Thank you both again! Looking forward to flying with you again!
A storm off the East Coast affected the wind as far in as Charlottesville so our May morning flight with Rick Behr of Boars’ Head Ballooning was cancelled the night before our scheduled flight. Rick offered to reschedule for the day after in hopes that the wind might calm. We said yes! Cancelled again. After that, we had only one more day in Charlottesville but no opportunity for a third try as Rick was completely booked for that day. Didn’t look like we were going to get our balloon ride. Then Rick offered to check with another balloon pilot in the area; a competitor or Rick’s. Our last day in Charlottesville proved to be perfect weather for hot air ballooning so off Rich and his balloon-basket full of students went, soaring skyward towards beautiful puffs of clouds. We watched them ascend from the perch of our own already airborne balloon. Thank you Rick for making it happen!
Great experience for any occasion!
Rick was a great pilot with a great sense of humor and stories about his experiences in ballooning.I felt more than safe while up in the air with him and the views were fantastic! Would recommend to anyone!
