Wow! Young West Hollywooder Lucas Bane really went all-out to give his boyfriend David Devora a surprise birthday show he’ll never forget.
The couple’s friends led David to a spot outside his house, where Lucas was waiting on the balcony. Following an incredible dancing number including Step Up star Briana Evigan, Lucas wiped the happy tears as Lucas began his message to David using Love Actually -style written cards.
It was all so romantic, and the clip showing Lucas’s epic engagement is now getting a fair amount of attention online. The ideas just flowed from a pretty simple initial idea, explains Lucas.
“Well, I’m a romantic and I love surprising David so I knew I wanted to do something big. My first idea was just to write, “Will you marry me?” with Christmas lights,” he told Instinct magazine.
“Then I thought about adding music and doing a little dance on the balcony. Little by little I just kept adding one idea on top of the other and every time I asked a friend a favor they delivered times ten, and it became a big production.”
He might not look it, but Lucas says he was very nervous through the whole evening leading up to the proposal. “I was a wreck because there were SO many things that could have gone wrong, but through some miracle it all went off flawlessly.
“As soon as I was on the balcony my nerves disappeared and I was just feeling the gravity of the moment, and I could feel the energy from David and everyone watching and I knew they were right there with me. It was exhilarating.”
