dave michael wordless marriage proposalA marriage proposal is one life-changing (or so you hope) moment that calls for words. At least four -- "Will you marry me?" -- are standard. Then again, who says they have to be spoken? That's what groom-to-be Dave must've wondered when he proposed to his boyfriend in an incredibly creative, heartstring-pulling, happy tearjerking albeit utterly silent way.  

Check it out ...

OMG, was that not the best silent proposal ever!? Who knew just holding up signs -- kinda reminds me of that one scene between Keira Knightley and the guy who isn't her husband in Love Actually? -- could be so damn romantic? Also, I don't know about you, but these two seem like one of the most well-liked, popular, and adorably matched couple I've ever seen! I mean -- where did they get all those friends?! The mere choreography of the proposal is to be admired!

But ultimately, all that really matters is that you can feel the genuine, unconditional, deep, and everlasting love between Dave and Michael. Their "story" shows they know the highs and lows of a long-term relationship and partnership so well and both seem beyond willing to do what it takes to make it last a lifetime. Not to mention all the friends and family who've got their backs! Really, what's not to absolutely love about that?

How adorable is this proposal?
