This Couple Got Engaged at WayHome

Love was in the air during Beirut's set

Last weekend was filled with magical moments at WayHome, but nothing quite like this one.

Love was in the air during Beirut’s Sunday set. In the middle of the crowd, Chris got down on one knee and proposed to his then-girlfriend, Courtney. Not only is Beirut their favourite band, but the special moment got ever better when frontman Zach dedicated the next song to the newly engaged.

Check out some photos of the proposal below, captured by WayHome photographer Ryan Bolton. Be sure to follow Ryan on Instagram for more festival moments.






This wasn’t the first festival proposal we’ve seen this year. Ryan also caught a Field Trip engagement in June. And another one popped the question during The National’s set at Longitude Fest in Dublin.

Congrats, Chris & Courtney!!
