East Texan Proposes To Girlfriend In Commerical

You may have seen a very unique proposal earlier Wednesday during Dr. Phil. One Longview resident bought and made a special commercial for his girlfriend.

This commercial aired earlier on KLTV.

"Hi I'm Graham Dawson, I'm sitting here in Longview, Texas. The town where I spent most of my life and the town where I've been lucky enough to meet the most important person in my life, April Dawn Shadwick. I am happier than I ever thought possible. I look forward to spending each day with you, I never imagined that one person could bring so much joy into my life. I would be honored if I could spend the rest of my life with you by my side. April..will you marry me?"

Here's a little background on the couple. Graham and April met at a bowling alley in Longview. They have been dating for about a year and a half. Graham bought the ring a few months ago but has been waiting for just the right time. It only took Graham one take when he shot the commercial.

KLTV spoke to him that day about his unique plan, "I just brain stormed; and I wanted to come up with something different and special. I must have thought of a million different things and this just was something that was possible and unique other people will be able to see it." "You only propose once in your life. So ill make that something to remember not just a ring. She'll just have to  you only propose once in your life. So ill make that something to remember not just a ring," said Graham.

Graham said he made sure April was watching TV during that time, plus he DVR'ed it just in case. And yes...she said yes.

April's surprise and the rest of the happy couple's story will air on KLTV 7 News at 5:00pm Thursday.
