This Proposal Involves Gelato, and We Love It
We love a unique proposal — like Disney proposals, the museum proposal, the beachside proposal, the hacked binoculars proposal, the selfie proposal, the photo booth proposal and, of course, the mammoth proposal (yep, MAMMOTH) — and that’s why we’re totally in love with what might be the yummiest (and literally the coolest) proposal we’ve ever come across.
Else Schmit and her boyfriend of almost two years, Luke Munsterteiger, are known for their shared love of not only each other, but also for Talenti Italian gelato. Often splitting pints together, when Luke was ready to propose, Else’s mother and sister suggested somehow bringing their beloved gelato into the plan. And Luke managed to do just that.
He contacted Talenti, who responded by creating a custom package (including the duo’s fave set of emoji) and a unique flavor for the pair called “Else, Will You Marry Me?” (specifically, it was fudge brownie).
Once he had the goods in hand, Luke told Elite Daily, “I snuck it into the store under my coat and then placed it toward the back, hoping no one would take it by mistake.”
When Else came in, though, she was in the mood for a Pumpkin Spice pint, but Luke had another idea. She explains, “He opened the freezer door and pointed to one but I couldn’t see the label, so I was totally oblivious. As I picked it up and read it I couldn’t believe it — there was no way! Luke had taken a step back so when I turned around he was already on one knee. I was super cheesed, of course.”
But not cheesed enough to say no, thank goodness. When Else’s mom and sister popped into the aisle, Luke presented his new fiancée with a family heirloom ring from the 1920s that the soon-to-be-bride’s mother gave to Luke to present to his love.
Sweet, yummy and super cool!
