“George and I, along with our friends, started counting down to welcome the new year,” said Courtney.

“When the clock ticked over to 2015 everyone cheered and clapped and I turned to George to kiss him, and he was standing there holding a small purple box and he said, “Will you marry me?” I immediately started crying and said yes.”
