Kyle Heywood met his future bride, Klydi Brower, at Utah State University. He learned that she was from Morgan and that he had gone to school with her older brother. After a short courtship he decided that Klydi was the person he wanted to spend his life with. He decided to propose to her in a unique way .
Kyle says, “At the suggestion of my uncle and some phone calls to my dad arrangements were made to plow the marriage proposal into a field owned by Darrell Rupp, which is behind the Heywood house.”
The project became a family project and Kyle’s mother and sister made trips up to the “M” to lay out the letters on the field. They directed the layout by cell phone. To be seen well the letters had to be 250 feet tall and 50 wide. Kevin Thurston plowed the eleven foot wide lines into the golden stubbled field he had just cut and baled the week prior.
Kyle and Klydi took a stroll to the “M” Sunday morning before watching LDS conference. He told her that since it was her first time to the “M”, she couldn’t look back until they got to the top, so as not to spoil the surprise of the beautiful view. He handed her the binoculars and had her turn around. The message can be read with the naked eye, but she found it pretty quickly in the binoculars. Kyle said, “She was definitely surprised by the view, that is for sure!”
Kyle said he had the most perfect weekend ever. First, he got to watch the Aggies beat the Cougars Friday; he heard that Indiana was getting an LDS temple Saturday during conference (he just returned from an LDS mission to Indiana in May), and then Klydi said “Yes” to his marriage proposal, which of course was the greatest part!
Congratulations to Kyle and Klydi.
