Whistler Flash Mob Proposal

Whistler Storybook Proposals
Whistler seems to be the place for storybook proposals and weddings.
Famously, in 2005, Seal proposed to Heidi Klum by taking a helicopter to Whistler, where he arranged a kitted out specially created igloo on top of a 14,000 foot glacier. As he said at the time:
"I proposed on Dec. 23 at 14,000 feet in Whistler, B.C., in uncharted terrain on a glacier, in a natural snow cave, in an igloo built just for the moment."
And then, in 2012, Steve surprised Tara on Seventh Heaven on Blackcomb. She never saw it coming, she said, though the two had been dating for seven years and Steve is her "best friend".
Lion King Flashmob Proposal
And now, Jared has asked his long-time girlfriend, Sophie, to marry him at the end of a flash mob which he arranged, had filmed, and organized himself.
Over 200 of his friends were present in Village Square, anxiously waiting for him to ask her. Sophie was completely unaware that a proposal was about to happen. Seemingly, she was the only person in Whistler who did not know. At 4:00 pm on Saturday, in a jammed square, music started.
Dancers from local dance group Vibe Dance Centre started to dance to the Imagine Dragon song "I'm On Top of the World" soon more people joined in and the music changed to Krista Seigfried's "Marry Me Baby" and finally, the Lion King song "Can You Feel the Love Tonight".
Jared emerged during the Lion King song from the back of the flash mod, approaching Sophie, who remained completely surprised. When she became aware of what was happening, a huge smile grew across her face.
She said "Yes"
The two had met in Australia in 2010, and both have said they knew they'd be together forever. Both Jared and Sophie are long time Whistler residents, and plan to now embark on their "Circle of Marriage" together here in Whistler.
