A StumbleUpon Marriage Proposal

07 Sep 2011 ourstereo In Engagement

Last week, From the Hip Photo had the chance to be a part of a very inventive and supremely cool engagement proposal.

Ty was trying to think up a clever way to pop the question to his girlfriend, Marquita, when he stumbled upon the idea to do it via… StumbleUpon. The pair have a penchant for browsing the web via the social bookmarking service, which offers up random selections from across the web based on a user’s preferences. (We are actually big Stumblers, too, so we loved this idea!)

He wanted to create a web page with a series of photographs that would spell out his proposal and then have Marquita “randomly” Stumble the page. When Ty contacted the folks at StumbleUpon to see if they could engineer a tweak to deliver the page to his girlfriend at a specific date and time he was delighted to hear that they in to help him pop the question.

Above you’ll find Ty’s special message to Marquita and below you’ll see a video of how everything went down!

Thanks again to Ty for allowing us to be a part of this incredibly sweet and inventive proposal and congratulations to the happy couple! We can’t wait for the wedding!

PS – This proposal was so amazing that it’s already been featured by Mashable, The Today Show, The Huffington Post, and UberGizmo (among others)–well done, Ty!
