Ryan had to stump his planner girlfriend, Kate, so he created a fake invitation to a friend's graduation party at the Lincoln Park lakefront in Chicago. On the way to the "party," Ryan said his friends were running late and asked Kate to take a detour by the Lincoln Park Zoo. After dropping to one knee with the Chicago skyline in the background, Ryan popped the question, and Kate said YES! A photographer captured the moment, and they followed it up with a surprise party to celebrate with all of their family and friends. Cheers to 6/24/22!
