ST. LOUIS - An area couple is celebrating their weekend as an engaged couple after an elaborate proposal took over the Arch grounds.
Saturday, a huge sign - measure 48-by-52-feet, with a marriage proposal written on it was laid along the edge of the park connected to the Gateway Arch.
Six-hundred-and-thirty feet inside the Arch itself, Matthew Nichols asked his girlfriend of five years, Nitya, to look out onto the Arch grounds.
"Oh, this has been incredible," said Nichols. "[I] could not have done this without help, and we did it [in] like two weeks."
"I had no idea this was happening," exclaimed Nitya. "This is just so far beyond anything I could have possibly expected."
Additionally, Nichols coordinated the project with park officials and local police.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
