Man Flies To Africa To Propose To His Girlfriend—In A Superhero Costume

Justin Page didn’t want to put off asking his girlfriend, Brittany Duncan, to marry him, even though she was away on a mission trip helping children in Africa. So he flew to Africa to surprise the love of his life. Not only was Duncan not expecting to see her boyfriend, but she definitely wasn’t expecting him to drop to one knee.

Those who were with Duncan on her mission trip were more than happy to help Page plan his surprise proposal. Telling Duncan they would be dressing up as superheroes for a skit, the volunteers broke up into several superhero-themed groups. Duncan was dressed up as Thor to lead her group, and Page disguised himself as Iron Man.

When the group leaders began performing their skit, Page made his move. Of course, given the superhero theme, Duncan wasn’t surprised to see Iron Man. But she was shocked when Iron Man took off his mask. She immediately burst into tears.

Then Page dropped to one knee. Duncan clutched him and cried as he said, “Will you marry me?” Of course, she said, “yes!”

After an amazing proposal like that, we have high hopes for one incredible wedding for these two. According to a Facebook update from Duncan’s mother, the two are set to be married in less than one month.

This certainly isn’t the first time a man has gone above and beyond to make a proposal special. Eric Martinez planned a “Little Mermaid” engagement photo shoot to immediately follow his surprise proposal. As you can imagine, the results were stunning:

We applaud these men for going above and beyond. And once you see this sweet, superhero proposal unfold in the video below, we think you’ll agree—themed proposals are the way to go!

What’s the most one-of-a-kind proposal you’ve ever been witness to?

Watch This Amazing Wedding Proposal During Live Performance Of ‘Beauty And The Beast’

Attention, Disney fans! You have to see this fairy tale of a proposal.

Brenden McNeil made the bold choice to propose to his girlfriend Kaley McLean in public. (Public proposals take guts!)

But McNeil did not just propose in public. He proposed on stage. In the middle of a performance. Yep, that’s pretty bold.

You see, Kaley is a huge “Beauty and The Beast” fan. So, when she was cast as Belle in the Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center’s production of the Disney musical, it was pretty much a dream come true.

That’s when Brenden got a great idea: Why not add to the excitement and magic of her final performance by proposing to Kaley during the last song of a sold-out performance?

So Brenden got to work. Without telling his girlfriend what he was planning, he worked with members of the crew to rehearse his part in the play and to be fitted for the Prince’s costume.

When the final song began on the last night’s performance, imagine Kaley’s surprise when her boyfriend came out on stage instead of her co-star. Then and there, in front of the packed audience, he got down on one knee and popped the question.

And, she said yes! They then completed the song and walked off stage together to thundering applause.

It was such a moving performance that Kaley’s good friend and costume designer David McCarthy asked if he could design and direct an engagement shoot for them. Of course, they quickly agreed, and the photos are positively stunning. (Note: Make friends with talented people. They come in handy.)

Can’t get enough “Beauty and The Beast”? Not to worry. The live-action movie starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens of “Downton Abbey” fame comes out in just two months. Check out the awesome trailer:
