A perfectly-planned beach proposal took a disastrous turn when the bride-to-be tackled her fiancé to the ground from excitement causing the ring to fly out of his hand and into the sand.
A couple from Ohio, who go by @tandkay021 on TikTok, shared the beginning of their heartwarming proposal that turned into a three-hour-long search for the star of the show – the diamond ring.
When the groom got down on knee, the bride was so smitten that she couldn’t contain herself and leaped into his arms causing him to tumble to the ground, leaving the jewelry no where to be found.
The series of videos that documented their search for the diamond ring went viral after the couple posted them with the caption, ‘I can’t make this up.’

As well as showing the romantic beginning of the proposal, the couple showed themselves along with others frantically searching through the sand long into the night.
Once the groom and bride stood up after their tumble to the floor, the groom can be heard saying, ‘I lost the ring honey,’ before adding, ‘I’m actually not joking, I don’t have the ring.’
After the ring flew out of the case, everyone came together to help these two lovebirds retrieve their beloved ring – including the photographer and her family.
In a follow-up video the bride and the photographer can be seen in a frenzy searching for a needle in a haystack.
The bride then decides they need backup and begins demanding her beau call her sister and anyone else who is willing to help them locate the diamond.
The bride’s sisters comes to the rescue, bringing two strainers to the beach, while the photographer’s step dad brought a metal detector.
Two hours later, the sun set and a team of people grabbed their flashlights and got on their hands and knees, digging through the sand without any luck.
After multiple hours, their photographer, who happened to capture the exact moment the ring fell, was the one to find the ring

The now cheerful bride boasted her shining ring on the couple’s account and added that she would ‘never’ take it off again
The family and friends of the couple could be seen searching every inch of sand, while the bride sobbed over her ring.
Strangers even approached the couple and offered to help, one of whom even ‘prayed’ with them and helped the couple search.
Despite having a metal detector on hand, the couple had no luck because the metal detector continuously picked up other metals or trash tucked in the sand.
Three hours later, the photographer, who happened to be the only person using her phone as a flashlight and no metal detector or strainer, found the ring.
The team of searches were ecstatic as the person who captured their love was the same person who found the ring.
The bride-to-be captioned the ‘reveal’ post: This amazing photographer and human found my ring. While everyone else was using a flashlight and the metal detector…. All she had was her cell phone light and her hands.
‘Photographers have good eyes!!!! Not only did her family come to the rescue they also stayed very later in the dark and cold. I’m so lucky.’
In a few follow-up videos, the bride revealed they didn’t capture the moment the prized jewelry was found, but they were so grateful for the photographer, adding that they tipped her even more than what they paid for the photos.
