Kimberly Perry received the proposal of her dreams when baseball player boyfriend JP Arencibia got down on one knee at her family home in Tennessee.

The singer from The Band Perry was stunned when she found herself under an oak tree in her best dress at her parents' Greeneville home. It was exactly how she had pictured getting engaged since being a teenager, admitting to The Tennessean that her first thought about the garden was, "If I get proposed to in this life, I hope it happens underneath this tree."

Her family had helped set up the romantic scene by sending her to change into her favourite pink dress and leaving a letter for her to read before she came back to discover the love of her life standing beneath the tree.

"I got to read the letter and get dressed and put on my grandfather's bracelet," she revealed. "I came back out on the front porch and he was standing there and he got down on one knee. It was perfect."

It certainly seemed like Arencibia planned this moment to perfection; the pair have been dating since the beginning of 2012 and Kimberly certainly knows she's found 'the one'. "I've never felt that with anyone before," she gushed. "He's just a really gentle soul. He balances me for sure."

Not only did he pop the question in the best possible way, he also brought out her 'absolute favourite' emerald cut ring that was designed by a Chicago friend. The wedding is set to take place sometime next summer.
