Getting engaged can be difficult, you never know who is going to be there and what could happen.
But one lesbian couple from Chicago, Illinois found out how beautiful it can be when everyone is out there to support them.
Jessica Rodriguez had told Chelsea Miller, both in their 20s, they going to a gala in the museum so they got dressed up extra nicely for the formal event.
‘She then took me in to the sculpture court told me it was a lie,’ Chelsea said. ‘Her friends were in on it holding a sign that said “Chelsea Miller, Will You Marry Me?”‘
“Baby I lied there’s no gala. I brought you here because of our love for art. We enjoy traveling to museums, having artsy dates and even showcasing art about our baby🐶 in our own home. If someone could describe our love it could only be done through a work of art. It is happy, fun, chaotic, inspiring and strong. I want to keep discovering art for the rest of my life by your side. Chelsea Miller, will you marry me?” . Our proposal at @artinstitutechi #MeetTheRodriguez So happy she said yes 💍 I love you @cnicolem_ 💕 This town by @niallhoran . . . #proposal #video #marriageproposal #engagement #lgbt #museum #art #sscouple #iloveyou #helzbergdiamonds
