When you meet the person you want to marry at a Starbucks housed within an REI outdoor gear store, this is apparently how you get engaged.

The setup: David and Stephanie are popping by their favorite spot, this one particular Starbucks, where they’ll be told that a joint promotion by the coffeehouse and REI has participants scrambling up a rock wall to get a gift card. The couple is down, and Stephanie wins the coin toss and heads out to compete.

While she’s climbing up the rock wall, David changes into a suit and assembles the couple’s family and friends. And if you’ve already guessed that it’s not a mere gift card at stake, you’re right.
