I don’t know who was more surprised, the girlfriend or Karen Gillan and Matt Smith. At the Louisville Comic Con in March, one Doctor Who fan decided he was going to propose during his photo opp with the Who-Crew. The picture evolution is fantastic.READ MORE

Yesterday we showed you King Joffrey’s Entertainment Weekly cover, today, the outlet has released the adorable couple’s engagement photos. It was such a whirlwind romance they only just found the time to shoot in King’s Landing. Since the two don’t actually have many memories together yet, props included Joffrey’s sword and crown. Maergery’s only in three of the pictures. Can’t you just feel the love?READ MORE

In super adorable things that make our hearts melt, an artist named Robert Fink worked with friends to develop a pretty involved game called Knight Man in order to propose to his then-girlfriend Angel. He filmed her as she played it (clearly much to her confusion) to document the occasion. The video is a little long, but it’s worth it to see her reaction when she realizes what’s happening. Congrats to the happy couple – and if you want to play the game, it’s here on Fink’s website!READ MORE

Redditor hamburgersandwiches posted these “crappy engagement photos” (his words) featuring him and his fiancée acting out scenes from Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Wayne’s World, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, and more. I completely agree that these are crappy, if by crappy you mean… not… crappy. Ugh. This must be Thursday. I never could get the hang of Thursdays. Click the jump and let the pics speak for themselves.

Victoria, aka ScruffyRebel, from Syfy’s Heroes of Cosplay got a fantastic moment captured on film during the finale. Her boyfriend Jinyo proposed while in Star Wars cosplay, with a Leia-inspired ring, and with an assist from the one and only Peter Mayhew. Just one thing, Victoria was wearing a Star Trek uniform. Awkward! Not really, but I had to say it. Because of the show, they couple had to keep the news under wraps for six months. I can’t even imagine. The ring was created by Paul Michael Design, who you may remember from their past geek-related work on the Adventure Time and R2-D2 engagement rings.READ MORE

Because it’s Jake.
Comic creator Josh Adams (Doctor Who ongoing, Batman Odyssey) saw Paul Bierker’s R2-D2 ring we posted on The Mary Sue a while back and decided he needed to propose to his girlfriend Saori with an equally geeky engagement ring. Adams contacted Bierker with his idea – Jake taking the shape of a ring – and he made it a reality. We’re very happy to know we were at least in some way responsible for this happening. Hit the jump to see the finished product on Saori’s finger.READ MORE

When it came time for Redditor Malcolm Collins, aka SirTechnocracy, to propose to his girlfriend Simone Smith, he decided to do something a little… different. Namely, he used memes and specially-commissioned illustrations of the two of them to pop the question on /r/AdviceAnimals and /r/pics.
A few of our favorite memes and illustrations are behind the cut so you can revel in the awwwww like we did. (The rest are here and here.) But first, let’s hear from Simone about her reaction to the proposal:READ MORE

Joshua Watson and his then-fiancée Rachel Van Der Merwe joined forces with photographer Jordan Nakamura to re-create posters of some of the couple’s favorite movies and TV shows to celebrate the pair’s nuptials. The results, as you can see, are really well done, to the point that some of the altered posters even trick Google image search.
Any future husband of mine has to be willing to do this, or the wedding’s off.READ MORE
