An Ohio woman has received a marriage proposal like something out of a frosty fairy tale, in a castle her boyfriend built out of snow.
Ryan Knotek says he wanted to pop the question to Christi Lombardo in a way that was special and give her a story nobody else had. So, he made blocks out of snow in the Cleveland suburb of Parma, where they live, and assembled a one-room, one story palace complete with pointed spires on the roof.
On the inside, Knotek set up candles, rose petals, wine - and a portable heater.
The cold castle and all the trimmings were warmly received by Lombardo when she arrived on Sunday. She answered the proposal with a yes.
