There's nothing better than witnessing a grandiose marriage proposal—except for watching it happen twice in a row. Prepare to be jealous of the people of Menomonie, Wisconsin; they got to watch one man propose to his girlfriend and her young daughter during the town's parade, and the scene will warm your heart.
The town of Menomonie held a holiday-themed "Winter Daze" parade last Thursday evening, and for firefighter Matt Poliak, the festival was the perfect romantic backdrop for his plan to propose to his girlfriend, Grace Johnson.
As the firetruck decorated with Christmas lights took part in the parade, Poliak jumped out of the truck and ran out into the middle of the street. He called his girlfriend and her two-year-old daughter, Isla, out from the crowd. The mother-daughter duo ran over to him, where the firefighter met them on one knee and popped the question to Grace.
The crowed erupted into cheers, but Poliak wasn't done there: The firefighter then got back onto his knee, but this time in front of Grace's daughter. He asked Isla if she would like to spend the rest of her life with him, to which she happily nodded her head yes and jumped into his arms for a hug. According to Fox News, Poliak bought both Grace and Isla diamond rings. Swoon. Watch the adorable proposal in the video clip above.
The heartwarming video has since gone viral, appearing on dozens of news sites and was even featured on the Today Show's Morning Boost with Hoda Kotb, leading to the question: How on earth will the trio top this at the wedding? In the past, we've seen both brides and grooms write a special set of vows for their new stepchildren. If this dreamy firefighter does the same, there'd better be some Kleenex nearby.
