A Marriage Proposal at Minecon 2011
During the closing ceremonies for Minecon 2011, Mojang’s Lydia ‘MinecraftChick’ Winters had a little surprise for everyone in attendance, but especially two specific people.
In the guise of a giveaway of a “one-of-a-kind” Jones Soda bottle, Winters called Asia Ramirez and Matt Dunn to the stage as the randomly chosen winners. However, once they reached the stage, Winters handed the microphone to Matt, who took a knee and handed Ramirez the Jones Soda bottle. On the label was the Minecraft diamond and the words “Will you marry me?” Luckily, she said yes.
It was kind of a neat moment, and one that could likely only take place at an indie event like this one. I can’t imagine that EA would interrupt the Battlefield 4 intro at E3 next year so someone could propose.
