(WICHITA, Kan.) — Michael Mastalski used his girlfriend’s love of animals to plan a one of a kind proposal.
“She prefers everything to be unique and special so I figured the best way to go is with animals of what she loves,” Mastalski said.
He told girlfriend Chelsey Bass they were going to the Sedgwick County Zoo to watch the elephants paint pictures for kids. The elephants painted but this picture was particularly special. Mastalski had written a special message on it before hand.
“I kind of lied to you a little bit,” said Mastalski as he told Bass what was going on. “Will you marry me?” He asked.
With a new ring and a bit of paint on her hand, it took some time for Bass to realize what was going on.
“I was very shocked, excited, and surprised. I was nervous because I saw all the cameras,” Bass said.
