Because there’s no location more romantic than the Low Steps at 4 pm on a November afternoon, an amorous young couple just got engaged there! With, of course, the help of Columbia’s most romantic a cappella group The Kingsmen. Bwog got a little too excited about this and assembled a team of videographers to document the occasion, captured in all its overcast glory below. Oddly enough, neither party is a Columbia alum or affiliated with the Kingsmen—guess you can hire them freelance? Hopefully this will boost your mid-November spirits and make you believe in love again. Our hearts were certainly warmed.
Spoiler alert: she said yes.

To a couple that proves that there will always be a place for each other in their lives, particularly in their hearts.

@Anonymous This video went on for the longest time.
