But before the bride can walk down the aisle to her groom, a particular question must be asked first.

The short, 3-minute clip begins with the older gentleman giving the woman flowers, a bouquet of roses. He then plants a kiss on her lips and asks her to take a seat in front of him.

After the woman finds a seat, the gentleman pulls out a blue box. It's unclear what piece of jewelry is in the box. They exchange words, but those are also not discernible. However, those mysteries do not diminish this sweet moment at all.

As the man goes through his prepared words, he picks up quite the crowd. Several travelers stop and take in the marriage proposal at the airport. Many even take out their phones to film the man popping the question to the woman he loves.
