When Justin Lebon proposed to his girlfriend on Christmas morning 2014 she had no idea and it's all because of the unusual way that he proposed. The couple grew up on the same street together in California but never really connected until they met on Match.com later on in life.
Lebon hired wood-worker Mark Becker to create a beautifully custom made monopoly board that covered in special and personalised locations as well as a special 'Chance' card and a secret compartment to hold a ring.
In order to make sure Michal landed on the lucky 'Chance' location Lebon handed her loaded dice that would only roll the number 7. The 'Chance' card read 'Will you marry me?’ followed with “If yes advance to luxury tax.” When Michal moved her piece Lebon dropped to one knee and produced a ring from the secret compartment.
Justin Lebon proposed to his partner Michal Ott using a custom monopoly board.
Dotted around the monopoly board were personalised locations of where the couple had been on vacations, where they had grown up and more...
"I knew years ago that Michal was the one, but it was a few months ago I decided I was going to ask Michal to marry me on Christmas morning."
The dice were loaded so that they would only ever roll a 7.
That's exactly the number Michal needed to role in order to land on the lucky 'Chance' card.
Michal moved her piece to 'luxury tax' and with the Justin got down on one knee and opened the secret ring compartment.
She said yes!
“She loved every second of the proposal, and I’m glad she did. It took a lot of planning, but I enjoyed every second of it”
