Event organizers told The Dayton Daily News that the proposal was a first for the annual event, which features hundreds of glowing jack-o-lanterns.

Stoddard said he wanted to pop the question in this clever way because October is his girlfriend's favorite month and because it seemed appropriate to ask Brenneman if she wanted to become a Stoddard at an event by the same name.
