This marriage proposal is funny, quirky and looks legitimately unexpected. This clip breathes cheerfulness and optimism, and would make even cynics sigh a little bit.
Cheerleading Alumni Christopher Balven is identified as the brave, yet terrified groom-to-be. He proposes to a fellow cheerleader, Tara Biggers, during a Homecoming game at Missouri S&T.
As the camera is ready to roll, we can assume he had planned this moment beforehand, even letting others in on his plan, in order to better capture the endearing moment. It helps that their proposal video will only feature athletic, toned, blonde, attractive students.
It seems the couple had been dating for a while, since 2009 to be specific, but the future bride looks stunned and, of course, overjoyed.
