Jessica Rodriguez told BuzzFeed News: “We hope this inspires LGBT people to not fear to express their love to one another.”
This is 25-year-old law student Jessica Rodriguez and her fiancé, Chelsea Miller, a 26-year-old full-time nanny and student. The two met on Tumblr, have been together for over four years, and now live in Chicago.
Rodriguez told BuzzFeed News after her grandmother passed away this year, it made her realise how short life is: "I just knew I had to hold on to love as much as I could since our days are counted. So I went and bought the ring."
She went all out for her proposal, which happened last weekend at the Art Institute of Chicago, because art plays a massive part in the couple's lives, she said: "We have traveled to various art museums in Texas, Pennsylvania, and Illinois. I once worked in an art gallery called the Wynne Home Arts Center and we even have a custom painting of our baby, Gatsby, a cavalier King Charles spaniel puppy."
When her excited 22-year-old brother, Carlos Jair Rodriguez, shared a picture of the proposal on Twitter, it quickly went viral and gained over 265,400 likes and 85,870 retweets.
