Christina McGinnis and Brian Green are in the kind of head-over-heels love that the rest of us dream about, but there was one major obstacle separating them from their happy ever after.
Although the couple has been engaged since 2013, according to USA Today they were struggling to plan a wedding that commemorated their decision to share their lives together without it getting too much in the way of, well, their actual lives together. There were too many expenses and complications.
"It took away the purpose and excitement of being married," Green explained to news station WXIA. "The wedding is just the ceremony. The marriage is what's important, so I just wanted to focus on the marriage."
In the midst of all of the delays and frustrations, Green decided to forgo the usual route and make a grand, romantic gesture. He arranged for McGinnis to participate in what was supposed to be a "bridal photoshoot" at the local mall -- but when McGinnis arrived, she found something else entirely.
Watch above, and don't be surprised if your heart grows three sizes. It's that beautiful.
