Texas man proposed to his boyfriend in front of his church and received a standing ovation

Texas Man Proposes To Boyfriend In Front Of Entire Church

Another proposal story to bring a tear to your eye!

Trevor Harper and Davis Covin of Texas have been dating since 2006 and have been proud and active members of the First United Methodist Church of Austin for roughly two years. Just look at how happy they are!

According to BuzzFeed News, Harper knew he wanted to take his relationship to the next level and wanted to propose to his boyfriend. He said that the church was the first place they were able to live their true selves. "That church has been, for us, really the first time we have really been able to live out loud as a couple."

This was the precise reason why he wanted to make the announcement in front of his congregation. Take a peak for yourself and see how it all went down.

How adorable and amazing, right! The video has already gone viral and has been viewed more than 45,000 times! He explained on YouTube that his church was a place that welcomed them both and changed their lives for the better.

Harper proceeded to tell BuzzFeed News that the proposal has been in the works for the past few months with the help of their pastor. However, this was especially important because although they were able to share their proposal with everyone in their church, they could not actually perform the ceremony there. The United Methodist Church forbids same-sex ceremonies from being conducted in Methodist churches or by Methodist ministers.

The couple hopes to marry in 2016, when they will hopefully be able to marry in the church!
