An unforgettable dinner cruise John and Kelly …
John DeHay invited his parents and the parents of his girlfriend Kelly Martin Heger to accompany him for a Charleston Harbor Cruise on March 16. But this was no ordinary night out: John and his dad had a secret plan in the works.
After John’s dad had a short chat with the emcee on the harbor cruise boat, John was called to the stage on the pretense of winning a prize. At that moment, John called Kelly forward, got down on one knee, put a gorgeous ring on her finger, and proposed to her in front of the entire crowd!
Congratulations, John and Kelly!
