Videographer Zac Zlatic created the perfect marriage proposal for movie buffs: a short film dedicated to his relationship with his girlfriend. 

His elaborate proposal plan involved renting out a screen at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas, and organizing a fake movie premiere with friends and family as the audience. His girlfriend, baker Kelly Satterlee, was none the wiser until the movie started playing, and she realized what was really going on. 

Zlatic documented the experience from beginning to end, including the beautiful short film documenting their eight-year romance—and ending with Satterlee tearfully accepting the proposal.
