The Viral Proposal Photo...for All the Wrong Reasons!

I remember when I proposed to my wife.  It was one of the scariest moments of my life!  Palms sweaty, voice quivering, stomach jumping.  I was a mess, but I held it together long enough to utter the words, “Will you marry me?”

The age of viral proposals

I remember where we were, what she was wearing and all that.  We were at her favorite restaurant, which just happens to be closed now.  I wish we would have been able to capture the moment on camera.  It seems almost every marriage proposal is caught on camera.  Shoot, some rival a theatrical production!  Marriage proposal videos and photos are going viral all the time now.

One particular proposal has recently gone viral, but for all the wrong reasons.  Actually, for one particular reason.  The reason? One finger of an old lady.

Best Viral Photo…EVER!?

Let me set the scene for you.  Kenny Lovelace planned to pop the question to his girlfriend Molly Ryan at a Colorado Rockies baseball game.  The guy was prepared.  Way more prepared than I was when I proposed to my wife.  He was so prepared he hired a photographer to capture each moment.

However, he wasn’t prepared for what happen just at the moment he got on one knee.  Everyone sitting around them was okay with the distraction from the baseball game, and that they were witnessing a proposal right there.  Everyone except one lady, who took exception, and showed it with her middle finger.  And yes, it was caught on camera!

How would you have handled your proposal photo being bombed like this?  Better yet, how would you handle it if the photo bomber was your grandma??
