Surprise proposal at Richmond International Airport

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A surprise proposal at Richmond International Airport!

"You know I love you very much and I want to love you the rest of my life. I hope you will too. Stephanie will you marry me? Oh my God, I love you. I'm glad you said yes."

Joe Beres got down on one knee minutes after his girlfriend, Stephanie Glazier, stepped off her flight.

The couple, both 23, has been together for about a year and a half.

He's a Richmond Benedictine College Preparatory grad, but lives in Corpus Christi, Texas where he's a naval aviator student.

She lives in Chicago.

Glazier flew in for a 50th birthday celebration with the Beres family and to celebrate New Year's. But Beres had other plans!

"I'm shocked! I had no idea," said Glazier.

"It went according to plan. I wasn't really worried. I was nervous but not worried. But it's still a big relief she said yes," said Beres.

Beres invited his family and friends to watch. Both said there is no better way to start the new year.
