For the average Joe planning a surprise public proposal, popping the question in front of a packed sporting event normally suffices. Not so for Republican National Convention production manager Bradley Thompson.

Thompson, 37, surprised Laura Bowman, 27, when he led her onto the RNC stage Wednesday morning, got down on one knee and asked her to marry him, Politico reports. She accepted right away, in front of a screen filled with pictures of the couple and a special message.

"I thought there was something fishy when he said that there was a sound problem, because there never is," Bowman later told the Associated Press.

RNC Chairman Reince Preibus even tweeted the happy couple his congratulations.
