A Totally Romantic Proposal on the Brooklyn Bridge!

I read this article by Joanna Goddard (from Smitten & A Cup of Jo) and I had to share!

Totally Romantic Proposal...On the Brooklyn Bridge!
This weekend, an adorable guy proposed to his girlfriend on the Brooklyn Bridge. Hear his and her stories of the proposal--and see their cute photos--after the jump...

As the couple walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, strangers handed her pink balloons and love notes!

Her story:
* When we started taking a walk after church, he was acting jittery and was really chatty. He also missed our transfer on the subway which never happens. He's normally very calm and collected. I was a little suspicious.
* We started walking across the Brooklyn Bridge. Strangers were handing me pink balloons, and too many things were going through my mind--just random thoughts like he is so cute, who are these people, wow I'm really lucky, doesn't this only happen in the movies? Is this real? He loves me, doesn't he?
* When he proposed, I felt really excited, happy and a little dazed!

His story:
* I was nervous and excited. As we walked, strangers gave her pink balloons and love notes. The notes were handwritten messages to her which reminded her of why I loved her and why I wanted to marry her.
* Now, I'm so happy and excited about the future.

How amazing is that proposal? Don't you love it? Congratulations to the happy couple!
P.S. The pink balloons are awesome; we also used one in our engagement photos. And read four other swoon-worthy engagement stories...
