The Proposal That Just Caught The World's Attention

A picture of the moment a woman asked her girlfriend to marry her has gone viral, and it's mostly thanks to the reaction of a bystander.

    The photograph below was posted on Twitter and has gained hundreds of thousands of 'likes' in just days, due to the delighted reaction of the woman in pink as she witnessed a same-sex marriage proposal in Chicago last week.

    A news site reported that the happy, stylish couple are Jessica Rodriguez and Chelsea Miller. Jessica got down on one knee and asked for Chelsea's hand in marriage at the Art Institute of Chicago – a venue chosen because of the couple's shared love of art.

    “If someone could describe our love it could only be done through a work of art,” Jessica wrote on Instagram. “It is happy, fun, chaotic, inspiring and strong."

    Word is they've been in contact with the older woman in the photo, and even plan to invite her to their wedding!

    We wish this beautiful couple all the best with their planning.
