Two years later, Adam got down on one knee and proposed to Raven. He planned out a whole day, and totally surprised Raven when he pulled out that ring box! Adam talked about how he decided to propose in an Instagram video that Raven shared two months after she said “yes!”
“So many people don’t get to see how thoughtful, planned out, funny, giving, loving, and sweet Adam truly is,” Raven wrote as the video’s caption. The rooftop proposal was complete with white rose petals, tears, and a gorgeous diamond ring. According to Page Six, the sparkler has an estimated worth of between $20,000 and $35,000.
Raven has been documenting the time leading up to her big day, sharing some special moments with fans on Instagram. A couple of days ago, Raven posted that she and Adam had obtained their wedding license. On Thursday, April 15, Raven shared a sweet video that appeared to be taken at the couple’s rehearsal dinner.
