A lofty proposal: 'Marry Me' etched in snow, seen from above
NEVIS, Minn. — An aviation student in northern Minnesota pulled off a sky-high marriage proposal by writing “Marry Me” in the snow, then flying his long-time girlfriend over his handiwork.
Gavin Becker enlisted his family’s help to pen the life-changing question using a snow blower on the frozen Eight Crow Wing Lake near Nevis.
Ed Becker, Gavin’s father, tells KARE-TV that it took about four and a half hours to create the 25-foot-tall letters and a huge heart.
Gavin Becker, a University of North Dakota aviation student, then rented a plane and took his high-school sweetheart, Olivia Toft, for a trip over the lake Sunday.
Toft, realizing it was 'snow joke', told him “yes.”
