A guy named Chris planned the most ultimate proposal for his girlfriend Marybeth and the epic moment even got him into a little bit of trouble but we are sure it was totally worth it. The now engaged man shared the romantic story on social media and it has gone viral since.
Chris decided to propose in the iconic Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and asked his brother and sister in law to hang a special painting on the wall next to Picasso, Marybeth’s favorite. What Chris painted is what makes this story adorable beyond words. Check out the full story he shared and check out the little painting on the wall.
“As we walked the aisles of art from ancient times and contemporary alike, we happened upon a room of Picasso’s art (Marybeth’s favorite),” Chris wrote. “My brother and sister in law were able to then hang the painting I had made of myself proposing to Marybeth wearing the red polka dot dress next to a Picasso. After I was given the signal I brought my girlfriend to the painting where she began immediately crying when she realized that the painting was of what was about to take place.”
After he proposed, “She nodded yes as tears traveled down her rosy cheeks. Her cousin, who had been undercover waiting for them to arrive at the museum, beautifully documented the moment through her photography.”
The twist came when the museum security saw what was happening and instructed the group to take the painting down and leave the museum.
“I knew she’d be wearing that dress because I had her mom buy it a few weeks in advance for her and then convinced her to wear it that day. I just said f it and decided I just do it at the biggest museum I could think of and ask for forgiveness rather than permission.”
