SPOKANE, Wash. – A local couple got engaged Friday night at the grand opening of the ice ribbon in Downtown Spokane.

Atticus and Josephine will be celebrating their five-year dating anniversary in January.

The couple skated around the ribbon a few times, then Atticus brought Josephine to the center of the ice and proposed. Josephine said her future husband even hired professional photographers to capture the moment.

Josephine said she had no idea this was happening. Atticus said he decided to propose a week ago.
