Surprise wedding proposal at American University graduation

(CBS News) It's graduation time at universities across the nation. And as some of the best and brightest prepare to enter the work force (or grad school or medical school or law school), there may be a few surprises still left for them before their education is fully over. Take the case of one young lady in the above video as she accepts her diploma... and gets an offer she can't refuse.

How romantic, right? And the audience breaking out in cheers and applause - priceless! The video was posted by American University who write about the surprise wedding proposal:

As American University School of Public Affairs graduates walked across the stage to accept their diplomas, graduate Sarah Cooper got the surprise of a lifetime. In addition to the excitement of being a new graduate, Cooper is now newly engaged to School of Communication graduate Sam Miller. He proposed on stage in front of family and classmates.

Just beautiful.  I think I have a little something in my eye.  We here at The Feed want to wish Sarah all the best in her endeavors after graduation and the soon-to-be nuptials that await her!
