Surprise Wedding Proposal at ‘When in Rome’ Premiere for Couple Who Met at Disneyland

Navy SEAL Chad Williams proposes to now-fiancee Aubrey O'Boyle on the Red Carpet at 'When in Rome' PremiereJust in time for Valentine’s season, Robbins Brothers, The Engagement Ring Store™, gave a lucky couple an unforgettable experience last night: a one-of-a-kind surprise marriage proposal on the red carpet at a Hollywood movie premiere.

Touchstone Pictures’ “When in Rome,” which hits theaters nationwide on January 29, celebrated its world premiere last night at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood.

The groom-to-be is Chad Williams, 25, a U.S. Navy SEAL from Huntington Beach, CA.  Chad proposed to his girlfriend of seven years, Aubrey O’Boyle, 23, in front of the assembled national and international media at the premiere of Disney’s new date-night movie.

Stunned but overjoyed, Aubrey answered “yes” — and is currently wearing a one-carat, round brilliant cut diamond set in a Scott Kay engagement ring, which Chad bought for her at Robbins Brothers’ Mission Viejo store.  The retailer will give Chad and Aubrey a gift certificate towards wedding bands in celebration of their upcoming wedding day. The couple also enjoyed a complimentary dinner from Fleming’s to celebrate their engagement.

Chad and Aubrey first met at Disneyland — standing in line for Space Mountain.  The couple has built a lasting relationship despite Chad’s various deployments around the globe.  Now that his contracted time with the military is coming to a close, Chad wanted to take the next step with Aubrey.  He went to his local Robbins Brothers store location to shop for a diamond engagement ring, and the rest is Hollywood history.

“Aubrey stuck by my side through thick and thin,” Chad wrote in an email to Robbins Brothers.  “We have always wanted to get engaged and get married.”

He added, “It’s time to marry my Aubrey, who has been good and faithful to me, enduring so much as she has paid a huge price to our nation — allowing me to fulfill my dream of serving as a U.S. Navy SEAL.”

“This was an incredible, one-of-a-kind marriage proposal for a real-life American hero,” said Larry Gomperts, EVP of Marketing for Robbins Brothers.  “We were delighted to give Chad and Aubrey this unforgettable romantic experience, and would like to thank our friends at Disney who helped us make this happen.”
