How do you know it’s true love?
When your proposal isn’t on a scoreboard, doesn’t involve a marching band, anyone’s friends, YouTube, TV stations, newspaper reporters and bloggers.
When it’s just you and the person you love. Oh, and the person who captured the proposal by accident while taking a picture of Saint Paul’s Rice Park Christmas lights.
Mazel tov, you kids!
Predictably, the media is searching for the couple. If you know them, keep it to yourself and let the moment be theirs alone — just the way they wanted it.
Update 5:22 p.m. The Star Tribune reports the person who took the picture has been in touch with the couple, and they wish to remain private. Because, we suspect, they’re in love and the moment was about each other and each other only.
Update 9 a.m. 12/20 – The couple has been identified.
