Brides typically turn to TheKnot.com after the proposal, but in an ironic twist, the site was recently used to pop the question.
The Knot wrote in a blog post on Friday that on Saturday at 4 p.m. EST, a rollover banner would appear on the website featuring a mystery man's marriage proposal. On Monday, the couple's identities and a video of the proposal were revealed. Find out how the proposal went down in the video above.
The groom-to-be, Jerid Hedrick, told The Knot that he met his girlfriend, Lacey, in a Denver coffee shop in February 2012 and the two remained together throughout his deployment to Kuwait that summer.
