So who went to closing ceremonies?
« on: September 08, 2009, 07:36:31 pm »
Hello K-Con crew;

This is the guy that proposed during closing ceremonies (she said yes squuuueeeee!~) and I was wondering...

Anyone take pictures of this?

I know I requested a few people to be there for this specific reason, but if anyone else took pictures/video of this happening, I would be dearly appreciative of getting a copy/getting them posted here/etc..

Thanks everyone~

Haha thank you for jumping on that so quick lego!

And you're quite welcome, I know my partner Andrew Duncan of Photography staff and Spot of the photo room both got photos of that as well but I do not know when they will be up.


Zachery of video staff got some video of it too from what I saw.

I'm sure we will be talking about that for years.... Amen to great planning on his part and the rest
of the staff... Boy... How do guys come up with such awesome Proposals!

You knew right away something was up but you weren't quite sure what;

Me: Why is he telling us his life story....? Wierd....

*Brandon guy starts talking about pink haired girl*

Me: Awww... wouldn't it be cute if they were gonna get married now... *zones out in romantic glee*

*Brandon guy invites pink haired girl on stage*

Me: EEEEEH! HE IS GONNA DOOOO IT!!!! (a really loud stage whisper)
*Ally gets elbowed by friend to shuddup!*

You all know the rest... XD I couldn't help myself... it automatically made it to the top 2 of my
favorite ways to propose... the other is:

The guy gets all the high scores on the girls favorite video arcade game, arranging the high
scores to spell out WIL YOU MAR RRY ME? *Squeals*

Got that from one of my fav web comics... soooo kawaiii!!!

Brandon once again Congrats, So are you going to have a Kumoricon Wedding next year? You should have one and hold it in the ballroom. Make it a ticketed event to pay for the food and stuff.

"If anyone finds that this couple should not be held in holy matrimony, then speak now, or forever hold your peace."

"Objection!" "Overruled!"

I expect the above to happen. :D

However, it would be fun to witness! It's a great idea!

LOL!  Congrats to you Brandon and your lovely bride to be...  I let out a super super super squee for you!
So cute!  And you weren't stalking her that first year.  You just really loved her, right away.

You should have everyone wear pink wigs at your wedding reception!
If you were gay, that'd be okay.

I'm mean cause hey, I'd like you anyways.

I was at the closing ceremonies, but I didn't take pictures... I didn't know we were allowed to. You know, sometimes people don't like pictures being shot at ceremonies like that...

But congrats to you and your fiancé. :)

I thought it was completly romantic and nerdy ^^ I thought at first they were getting married, not purposing, but it's just as sweet. I couldn't hear her say yes though since everyone went wild.


By the way - I didn't catch how many he said actually attended. Anybody know?

*claps*

Yaaay, I just have to tell you that I speak on behalf of me and all of my friends at closing ceremonies when I say thank you for sharing that moment with all of us!  It was such an uplifting moment, beyond adorable, and very touching.  I was tearing up!! 

Congratulations to you and your lady, I have a soft spot for dork love.  ^_^  I met a special someone at a con myself. <3

I wish both of you happiness in the years together that lie ahead! <3

:( I couldn't be there.  I had to drive 3 hours to get home, and it's a good thing I did because I wound up sleeping around 8pm that night.

Would have been there, but I was due at the airport for a 3pm flight to DFW (and now I'm in Denver for NDK)...
