Union City native Edward Mariano popped the question to his
sweetheart Shannon Corso by taking a very unique and certainly memorable
approach to proposing while shopping at the Livermore Premium Outlets.
As Corso realized the dance was meant for her, she wiped tears from her cheeks.
love you more than all of the stars in the sky or all of the fish in
the sea," Mariano told Corso. "Just being with you has made me a better
man and closer to God. And I want to spend the rest of my life with you.
I want to grow old with you and start a family."
On bended knee, in front of a crowded shopping center, Mariano asked Corso to marry him. She said yes.
Bay Area videographer Ken Guanga, who helped film the event, told Patch about the couple and the proposal in Livermore on March 23.
"Edward was actually with Shannon and his sisters inside Michael Kors
before the flash mob started," Guanga said. "They were suppose to be buying a birthday
gift for his mom. He pretended that he had to go to the bathroom while
his sisters kept Shannon distracted inside Michael Kors."
