Marriage Proposal at Symphony of the Goddesses

KyleDecember 14th, 2012 by Kyle

We’ve heard some pretty interesting romantic stories here at Zelda Dungeon–for better or for worse–but this one might just take the cake.

Hit the jump to get the scoop on what Destructoid associate editor Tony Ponce witnessed at a performance of Symphony of the Goddesses.

Ponce relates the following story:

“Even though I already attended The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddess in Los Angeles during E3 week, when I learned that the show would be performing in my home town of West Palm Beach, I knew I had to see it one more time. And my friends, I am so glad I did.

Though the Kravis Center is not as large a venue as the Greek Theater, this show was not without its share of surprises. The biggest one? Just before intermission, concert producer Jeron Moore took to the stage and asked that the spotlight be directed towards a young couple in the middle of the room. This guy gets down on one knee and proposes to his girlfriend, and the entire audience erupts in joyous celebration. My heart melted right then and there.

If only the orchestra had played the “Item Get” fanfare when he slipped the ring on her finger, though I’m afraid that would have been too much for anyone to bear.”

I have to agree with Ponce on that. As fun as it is, playing a jingle is just a little too cheesy for such a momentous occasion. Plus, it’s kinda not at all romantic, and would imply that the guy’s girlfriend is an item to be obtained. But that’s just me.

Do you have a romantic Zelda story? Feel like sharing? You know the drill! Comment!

    I met my wife when we webmastered Hyrule: Land of the Legend back in ’05/’06. She lived in California, I lived in the Netherlands, but we got a long quite well. Our first date was E3 2006, where we played Wii and Twilight Princess (without waiting for 6 hours!). Even got a few ‘private’ (50 guests) evening hours at Nintendo. In 2007, she came to the Netherlands and in 2009, we got married. Happily married still, and she just got her residence permit, ensuring our impressive Zelda collection stays nice and safe in Europe. (this video misses a few of our items stilll)

  • Termina Hero

  • Emma Mix

    SO SWEET! Maaan it would suck if she said no, lol :-/

    • farore

      thats why he did it infront of so many people, is so she couldent say no!

    • Linkfan99

      That would have probably ruined the whole concert experience.

  • Myran

    I was at that show!

  • Kyle Rogers

    I WAS THERE! IT WAS AWESOME the soon-to-be-husband was like “I didn’t come here just to see this show” which was stupid… I came to see the show! it was really touching and it was right after the wind waker movement so it really was awesome. I also saw some chick with an Ezlo hat. I was so jealous

    • Lord Carlisle

      Yeah, I was there too! I had tears in my eyes when he proposed, which is unlike me… I didn’t like when he said “I didn’t drive you all the way down here just to see this concert… which is wonderful, by the way”… that just seemed a little insulting.

      Did you see the girl in the Tingle costume? Best costume there, IMO.

      • Newty

        I was there as well! The Tingle costume was amazing! That one boy dressed up as TP Link was really cool! I liked the guy with Majora’s Mask while holding the “12-21-12 The Final Day, 13 Days Remain” – That was a great idea!

        • Lord Carlisle

          The tingle girl had a beard, shades, and everything… I only saw that guy hold up the Majora’s Mask. There was also a Midna there…

    I was at that show!

  • Hylia

    I love how there was a Call of Duty pop-up ad when I clicked on this -____-

    • Linkfan99

      EPIC fail.

    • Shiro

      *plays EPIC FAIL on trumpet*

  • Linkfan99

    I interpreted it as if the item getting obtained was the ring, and the woman was the one obtaining it, so the boyfriend wouldn’t be, so to speak, “getting the girlfriend”.

  • Blakenator

    A more fitting jingle would be the Heart Container Get, but still, I wish I had a romance as great as that :D

  • DunbansBiggestFanForever

    Very heartwarming story

  • farore

    hey do ya think he propsed with the “its dangerous to go alone” rings?

  • The Unicorn Hanger-Outer


  • pizzaman

    Aw…I WANNA WIFE! Too bad I’m only 15.

  • linkypete

    He should have used some of those recently posted zelda wedding rings.

  • baileygirl99

    That’s sweet. :-)

  • Amber

    If you love Zelda that much, like myself
    I would think it would be very romantic
