The video of the proposal has gone viral, and we’ve got the video and all the details on how the romantic moment came together!
Proposal at the Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge
Both Jeremy Brown and his girlfriend of 6 years love the Titanic, so when Brown found out the Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge did wedding proposals, he knew it would be perfect. The elaborate proposal was inspired by the tragic romance movie, “Titanic.” Brown’s girlfriend, Mori Madrid, was blindfolded and escorted to the Titanic’s replica of the Grand Staircase, where Brown was waiting at the top. “My Heart Will Go On,” by Celine Dion played in the background as Madrid took off her blindfold and was handed a note that read, “Meet me at the clock. Make it count.” Brown then gave Madrid a replica of the “Heart of the Ocean” necklace from the movie before getting down on one knee and popping the question. She, of course, said yes, and the newly engaged couple enjoyed a serenaded private dinner in the Secret Dining Room. The video of the proposal at the Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge has been seen by more than 13 million viewers.
