Sam Miller and Sarah Cooper met in 2009 as fresh-faced freshmen on the campus of American University in Washington, D.C. He was in the School of Public Affairs and she was in the School of Communications. They started dating, and after only three months Miller knew deep in his heart that Cooper was “the one,” according to WUSA9.com.
Miller wanted desperately to propose to Cooper, but the young woman’s mom was unwavering in her stance that the couple had to wait until after graduation.
Miller heeded the mom’s wishes, but clearly she didn’t specify how long after graduation, so… on Sunday, May 13, about three seconds after Cooper received her diploma, Miller was waiting on the ceremonial stage with ring in hand.
As Cooper prepared to exit the platform, Miller got down on one knee and popped the question in front of a cheering group of family, friends, professors and peers. The surprised Cooper nodded “Yes” and the couple embraced. Then Miller slipped a diamond engagement ring onto her finger.
“I chose to propose on stage at her graduation because I didn’t want to wait another minute for her to be my fianceé,” Miller told NBC Washington.
The video of the proposal posted on YouTube has been viewed more than 40,000 times over the past three days. Here’s your chance to share in the romance…
