It’s enough to knock the socks off any bride-to-be. Having spent 30 days planning the perfect proposal, William Hunn went down on one knee with five sparklers for the love of his life, Brittney Miller. 

In a video that’s gone viral, William, who is from Atlanta, Georgia, tells Brittney he has to have her. 

“Will you marry me?” he asks, presenting her with five different diamond rings. “You can try all five or pick one.” With tears flowing, Britney simply answers, “Absolutely”. 

The pair, who first met at university, had been dating for just over a year before William decided to ask for Brittney’s hand in marriage on Easter Sunday. 

“I just knew I wanted it to be something that was going to be really special for her," William says. And while five rings may sound over the top, it doesn’t end there. William spent a month planning the perfect proposal. 

"It turned into bringing this helicopter and flying around Atlanta beforehand,” he says. “Then it turned into, 'Why don't I just have her family fly down? My family fly down?' Why don't I just do an engagement party this same exact day?'" 

Love-struck William ended up opting for a rooftop proposal. He pulled out all the stops, flying in both their families for an engagement party. The soon-to-be Mrs Hunn was blown away by her man’s grand romantic gesture. 

"I just started crying. I tried to hold it in, but emotions just took over,” Brittney says. After composing herself, she later posted a message on social media. “William, you are truly a blessing. You’re my best friend, fiancé, soon-t- be husband and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you.”

The extravagant engagement caught the attention of Oprah’s bestie, talk-show host Gayle King. "It was very creative, the fact that he cared that much,” Gayle said on an episode of CBS This Morning. “To me, it sounds like that marriage is off to a very good start." 

So, you may be wondering, which of the five rings does Brittney like the most? Is she keeping them all? Taking turns to wear them one by one during the week? Turns out her hubby-to-be was both smart and shrewd. He’d asked Britney which ring she liked most when they were window shopping and made a mental note, then went back and bought them all – on the proviso he could return them if she didn’t like/want them all.

She chose the one she loved the most and the rest are back in their little cushions in the store. Which means William has some cash in hand again to blow on the honeymoon.
