NEVIS, MN (AP) – An aviation student in northern Minnesota pulled off a sky-high marriage proposal by writing “Marry Me” in the snow, then flying his long-time girlfriend over his handiwork.

Ed Becker tells KARE-TV it took his son, Gavin Becker, about 4½ hours to write the life-changing question and draw a huge heart using a snow blower on the frozen Eight Crow Wing Lake near Nevis.

The letters were 25-feet (7.5 meters) tall.

The University of North Dakota aviation student then rented a plane and took his high-school sweetheart, Olivia Toft, for a trip over the lake Sunday.

Toft, realizing it was snow joke, told him “yes.”
