”I arranged for the song that I had written to play over a slideshow of pictures of her and I on the screen. Jade had no idea whatsoever. When I moved the chairs over and we were standing there she still didn’t know.”

When the lyrics ‘it feels so right, let’s start a new life, will you marry me?’ played Tarjan got down on one knee and popped the question.
