Same-Sex Wedding Proposal In The White House

Over the weekend, U.S. Marine Corps captain Matthew Phelps proposed to his partner Ben Schock in what is believed to be the first same-sex engagement caught on camera at the White House.

During a visit to the White House, Phelps got on one knee and asked Schock to marry him. On his Facebook page, he wrote:

“Such a special night surrounded by wonderful people in an amazing place, and the best is still yet to come with Ben Schock. Thanks for all the wonderful greetings and messages, and thanks to Barack Obama and Michelle Obama for lending us your home for the occasion!”

Check out photos of the beautiful moment below.

Congrats to the happy couple!
