Surprise Beachfront Proposal Leaves Fiance In Tears

Thawing that permanent Polar Vortex that resides in our chest (a.k.a. our cold, black hearts) is the first marriage proposal video featuring a gay couple to go viral in 2014. Houston's Jeff Robertson and Jeremiah Pyant are the couple of honor, becoming so after their surprise engagement video landed in our feeds this week.

Jeff provides the context: 

On our annual trip to Mexico I surprised my partner Jeremiah with a special marriage proposal (this isn’t the wedding….just the proposal). Here is how I pulled it off. First I sent a fake letter to our home 6 months ago saying we were chosen for a photo shoot for the resort we vacation at every fall. Then I told him we were saving up for a big trip to Australia for my 30th B-day in 2014. I also told him we would be going on a number of excursions during our vacation i.e. zip-lining, snorkeling, horseback riding and more! When in reality I used those funds and hired the video and camera crew for us.

And you'll have to provide your own Kleenex:
