Skateboarding sweethearts Alec Beck and Amelia Brodka already had fond memories of the Vans Skatepark. That’s where the couple met, and now it’s where they got engaged.
In an interview with Vans, Brodka was explaining how she and Beck celebrate their “Vaniversary” every year. Then Beck skated across the bowl and launched out into a perfect kneeslide proposal.
Here’s video, as shared on Instagram by skateboarding legend Tony Hawk:
The video has nearly 21,000 upvotes on Reddit, although the comments unfortunately (and not too surprisingly) devolved into lonely guys pining about never finding love. But don’t let that put a damper on Beck and Brodka’s relationship milestone!
For my friends who haven't seen how lucky I am yet. A special moment between me and @ameliabrodka, thank you so much for saying yes, darling. HUGE thanks to @vans, @vansgirl1, @stevevandoren, @mateo_ramirez, Kelly, Megan, and @nealhendrix for the perfect assist. I'll post another angle in a few (don't care if you're tired of it) #vanspoolparty #proposal
Thank you @alec_beck for making me the luckiest girl on the planet! And thank you @vansgirl1 @stevevandoren @nealhendrix and Matt Ramirez for helping to orchestrate the raddest proposal ever! Thank you everyone for the love and wishes! Thank you for capturing so many of our lovely moments @joannebarratt_photo !!!!
Public proposals are always a risk, so props to Beck for pulling it off.
