Of course, the blustery September day wasn't exactly ideal for keeping the message clear and in place overhead, but we'll hope for the best and assume that the above Twitter user is right: Kristina saw the amazing proposal, before the wind took over, and said “y-e-s." What a crazy, awesome gesture, mystery proposer, whoever you are. Congratulations to the happy couple!
