Not since the highly publicized wedding of power couple Dumbledore and Gandalf has there been this much marriage buzz on the grounds of Hogwarts.
A Harry Potter fan (that’s narrowing it down) proposed to his boyfriend at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, FL earlier this month, employing the best use of a 3-D printer we’re likely to ever hear of.
Derrick Walker got down on one knee in front of Hogwarts Castle and presented Garrett Galvan not only with an engagement ring, but a custom, golden, Quidditch-rific snitch.
You’d better believe Garrett, a fellow HP fan, said “yes.”
Derrick had to employ the services of a 3-D printing company to produce the soon-to-be family heirloom, and even had it engraved with Dumbledore’s eternal message to HP from beyond the grave — “I open at the close.”
Just don’t try and take the message as a metaphor for marriage. It’s pretty confusing — better to focus back to the awesomeness of the gesture.
Garret was reportedly in a mild state of disbelief, saying “Is this real? Is this really happening?” before saying “Yes.”
It’s real, Garret. Magic is real.
