Hot Air Balloon Marriage Proposal Goes Up In Flames (Don't Worry, Everyone Is OK)

After Stephen Richardson proposed to girlfriend Brandi Runyan during a hot air balloon ride on Saturday, sparks were flying -- but for all the wrong reasons.

According to ABC News, the couple and five others were on board when the balloon crashed into a live power line in Noblesville, Ind. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured in the accident, but some people in the area did lose power temporarily. (Check out a video of the accident above.)

Richardson told ABC News that the couple of two and a half years doesn't consider the crash a bad omen.

“She wanted a story and she got one,” he said. “Especially after this, we’ll just keep [the wedding] simple.”

The FAA is now investigating the crash, NBC Chicago reports.
