We blogged yesterday abut a very public Valentine's Day marriage proposal; so here's the update, courtesy of the Herald:
An overwhelmed Auckland woman has said "yes" to her partner's billboard-sized Valentines Day proposal.
Aucklander David Sims, 23, proposed in grand style this morning - writing his message of love to long term girlfriend Leena Riekkola on a billboard in Takapuna as part of Westfield's "Truly, Madly, Hugely in Love" Valentine's Day campaign.
Miss Riekkola was so shocked it took her 20 seconds to get out the one word Mr Sims wanted to hear: "Yes".
A still-ecstatic Mr Sims this afternoon said despite the wait, he was glad the proposal had taken his bride-to-be by surprise.
"It was the longest 20 seconds of my life, but it was amazing
"It's been an amazing day. A huge day. Pretty much everything has changed."
Don't you just love happy endings? Best wishes Leena and David!
