Woman Is Overjoyed to See Complete Stranger Propose to Girlfriend
When Jessica Rodriguez proposed to girlfriend Chelsea Miller, she had no idea it would make the internet explode.
Rodriguez recently popped the question at the Art Institute of Chicago, but what really made the moment momentous was the delighted reaction of a woman who just so happened to be sitting by them at the time. Rodriguez’s brother snapped the photo and shared it on Twitter.
Pardon the silly wordplay, but the woman has a look of unbridal-ed joy.

Rodriguez’s brother was also thrilled. He told BuzzFeed, “I am just so happy that a positive LGBT photo went viral. It’s not every day something like this has such [a] positive reaction to the general public….The sweet woman had such a beautiful reaction. It’s absolutely amazing to see such love coming from a bystander.”
If you’d like to see more of the proposal — and you know you do — video of the scene has also emerged:

The twittersphere was almost as moved as the woman herself.
