Allen worked with Karlie's friends to join them on the weekend getaway, so she wouldn't suspect that a proposal may take place. As a professional golfer, Allen said he to attend a golf event and would meet up with them later ... but really he needed to do some secret maneuvering the final proposal spot.

Once lunch was over, Karlie and her friends made their way to scope out some scenery. When Karlie arrived, Allen was waiting for her at the bottom of the hill atop a rock with the most stunning view.
