IKEA Marriage Proposal: Miami Man Pops The Question With Flash Mob Proposal (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

IKEA is typically thought of as a place where healthy relationships go to die. The day-long shopping excursions through a seemingly never-ending maze of aisles can wear patience thin, causing normally happy couples to bicker.

But that was not the case for Miami couple Carlos Gato and Rebecca Shackelford, who met by chance at the IKEA in Sunrise, Fla. two years ago. They ended up hitting it off and spent more than 10 hours together until the store closed.

On Saturday, Gato, a 29-year-old paramedic, popped the question to his girlfriend at the same place they first met. With the help of some romantic people at IKEA and Sean's Dance Factory in West Palm Beach, Fla., Gato organized a flash mob proposal to Bruno Mars' "Marry You."
