A woman lit up the banks of New York’s East River on Friday night in a romantic surprise proposal for her girlfriend involving 350 LED candles.
Ashley Connors, 29, used the bright lights to spell out MARRY ME? on the floor of a parking lot in Williamsburg - to which her partner, Allison Case, said ‘yes’.
The advertising planner told MailOnline that she wanted to do something ‘very New York-y and big but also intimate and romantic.’
'It took her a good 30 seconds for her to realize it was for her. We just stood there for a minute and it felt like the entire city stopped for us.
'It literally felt like it went silent. I asked her to marry me, and she said yes, yes, yes!' (x)
