Choreographer delivers the dancing wedding proposal of your rom-com dreams
Step aside Channing Tatum, there is a new dancing heartthrob in town.
L.A.-based choreographer Phil Wright performed a pretty epic proposal for his fellow dancer and girlfriend, Ashley Liai. On Wednesday, the two were mid-dance routine when Phil got down on one knee and popped the question.
In the video, they’re dancing to John Legend’s “You & I (Nobody in the World),” while a crowd eagerly watches from the sidelines.
The two met eight years ago in Miami, when Ashley signed up for Phil’s hip-hop class. Three years later, they moved to Los Angeles to pursue their dancing careers.
Ashley told Mashable that Phil unexpectedly proposed on their anniversary.
“All I knew is that we were doing a couples’ class on our anniversary. I had no idea the man of my dreams would ask me to be his forever. We met in class so it’s just so perfect that he asked me to be his future wife in the same setting. This moment was truly unforgettable for the both of us. I’m still on cloud 9.”
Ashley posted a photo on her Instagram that captures the joy of that moment, complete with the most perfect engagement hashtag.
Phil says this proposal felt very personal to them as a pair, “My desire with choosing this way of proposing to my girlfriend was trying to consolidate happiness. I gathered all the things I loved to create the perfect environment for this huge step in our relationship.”
We can only imagine the awesome first dance these two will perform at their wedding.
