Nat Probert, 29, popped the question by the Lincoln Center in the middle of the storm in New York City. His girlfriend, Colleen Hanrahan, 27, thought she was meeting his parents at a nearby restaurant.

Nat had spent weeks planning the event but could not foresee the harsh weather.

“I had originally planned to propose to her in front of Lincoln Center, on the steps,” he told the New York Daily News. “I wanted to do it right, in a big open place like that plaza.”

The precious moment was caught by Paparazzi Proposals as friends and family hid nearby.

The couple has been dating for three-and-a-half years and plans to marry in August 2017.

Nat and Colleen were not the only couple who got engaged during the historic storm.
