Man proposes to girlfriend at O.C. Fair, six years after first date there
Their first date was at the Orange County Fair. So it only made sense for Carlos Jaime, 26, to get down on one knee and propose to Jasmine Geider on her 27th birthday Saturday in front of a basketball games booth at the O.C. Fair.
The couple grew up in Costa Mesa. Geider, an intern for the O.C. Fair and Events Communications Department, said "yes."
Six years ago, the two had their first official date at the O.C. Fair. Jaime played and won a prize for Geider, according to the Daily Pilot. On Saturday, Jaime brought Geider back to the same basketball game, this time winning a smaller prize, her engagement ring.
The ring was kept safe by one of Jaime's friends, whom Geider had not met before, who pretended to be a basketball game worker.
