A painted-up proposal at the Solstice Parade

Painted up in his best tuxedo, Kris did something that he doesn’t think anyone else has ever done – he proposed to his girlfriend of two years. Now the newly-engaged couple is looking for pictures of the big moment.

“He was topless, but wore bike shorts so that we could show the pictures to my grandmother,” Amy says.

Amy says that the couple met almost two years ago to the day at the Solstice Parade. She was biking painted up and Kris thought she had the best costume ever. He kept telling his friends “how awesome that woman must be that she’s so creative!” Amy says. They ended up crashing the same BBQ but didn’t connect until a little later on an online dating site.

The couple is hoping someone saw the proposal this past weekend and grabbed their camera. If you have pictures Kris and Amy, please email them to preppyhippies at gmail dot com
