The First Genuinely Charming Public Marriage Proposal

Already this year we've had the live tweeting marriage proposal and several jumbo-tron varieties, TV proposals and a botched food court serenade. Always they seem pretty coercive. Like, the dude is so insecure that he makes saying “no” an act of great public humiliation.

So I was delighted to see the very first truly charming public proposal. I would marry Isaac, if only because he has so many great friends. With his home-spun, down the driveway, Glee routine he seems less after glory than a beautiful sense of community.
