Surprise Proposal At Funeral; Engagement Ring
Mercedes Javid, also known as "MJ," is a real estate agent and a reality star. Mercedes finally tied the nuptial knot with her fiance of more than a year, Tommy Feight.
Tommy got down on one knee with an engagement ring for his girl back in 2016 after dating her for around a year. At the time, Mercedes' engagement rumors were flying around, but the details, not so much.
The reality star then confirmed her engagement but denied to reveal her fiance. As the proposal was set to feature on the show, she did not talk about it.
But when the show aired a few months later, it came to light that Tommy had popped the question in a cemetery during the most unexpected situation which caught her by surprise.
