OFALLON, MO. (KSDK) - At this time of year, plenty of people have their yards decked out in holiday lights. But a light display in Missouri caught plenty of eyes with its arrangement -- especially those of one young woman.
Justin Blattel got creative when he proposed to his girlfriend of seven years, Meghan Ohrman. Blattel popped the big question using Christmas lights shaped to read, "Will You" -- followed by an engagement ring - and then the words "marry me."
Ohrman says she never saw it coming.
It was a complete surprise. I kind of had given up hope for it happening this year, and we drove past my house, and there it is! Blattel didn't stage the big proposal on his own.
He had the help of several relatives and friends -- one of whom set up a fireworks display to go off the minute Ohrman said "Yes!"
