A Viral Love Story

“Extra, Extra, Read All About It!”

When we got engaged, I don’t think either of us expected that our story would garner much attention. After the initial outpour of warm congratulation messages died down, we started posting pictures from our proposal on twitter, using distinct hashtags that would set our story apart. Before we knew it, we were contacted by an editor at Buzzfeed who was interested in writing a feature on us. I sent her some information and a few pictures, and within minutes, she had an entire article published on our story.

After our story was published on Buzzfeed’s major social media platforms, we were approached by many news outlets and online publications for interviews. It was so much fun getting to re-live the proposal and talk about it everyday to someone new! We did interviews with Mashable, CBS News, Fox News, Yahoo News, PopSugar, The Knot, Atlanta Journal Constitution, Creative Loafing, Times of India, BBC News, and People Magazine! We were shocked to find that our story had been featured on almost every major country, translated to several different languages, and even featured on TV!

Here are a few videos features and links to articles that we were fortunate to be a part of!
