It took many people and a baby stroller to hold down the wind-whipped letters in "Will You Marry Me?" on sheets large enough to be seen from the top of the Washington Monument. That’s where David Claster, 26, had taken Sabine Knauf, also 26, to enjoy the view. When she saw the message, she said, "Isn’t that cute—someone’s proposing." "Yeah," David said, "It’s me."

Jeff Joughton, 27, arranged a special showing of an edited version of the movie Say Anything for his girlfriend, Michelle Seifert, 23, at the Moxie Theater in Springfield, Missouri. He replaced John Cusack with an image of himself in a key scene, with a frame that read, "Marry Me, Michelle." "You could hear that girl screaming a mile away," remembers Moxie owner Dan Chilton.

Tasha Craft was returning from Africa when, during the last leg of her 28-hour flight home, she heard the flight attendant calling her name. Then her boyfriend’s voice came over the intercom. "Ubie asked if I would do him the honor of being his wife, and if I accepted, to meet him in the aisle," says Tasha. The whole plane cheered as she leapt up from her seat.
