Nashville Illustrator Yoni Limor is the Man Behind the Coolest Marriage Proposal Ever

Posted By on Thu, Apr 4, 2013 at 11:30 AM

In an age of YouTube flash mob proposals and gypsy weddings, one Chicago man thought outside the screen and proposed to his girlfriend in a library with an original children’s book. The man in question, Jason Methner, wrote A Hare-y Tale for girlfriend Molly Lipsitz with lots of help from his friend — Nashville-based artist, animator and author of webcomic Sheldon the Librarian, Yoni Limor. Methner portrayed himself as a tortoise, with Lipsitz as a hare based off of her childhood stuffed bunny. (Spoiler alert: she said yes!)

Limor wrote on his blog that, "it was a little daunting being asked to draw something that would have such a sentimental value on what would be one of the most important days of their lives," but Lipsitz said yes. Photographer Aparna Paul Jane captured the proposal at Chicago's Harold Washington Library, and the photos were posted on the library Facebook page. From there, the story took off. Picked up by the Huffington Post, Toronto Star, and then After being seen across the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, the story was picked up by Buzzfeed where it gained almost 50,000 views in less than 24 hours.

Limor wrote, "I couldn’t be happier for Jason & Molly; the entire world deserves to see what true love looks like."
