Wedding proposal at Pi Alley

Joe Cabrera wasn't the only person to head to Pi Alley in Downtown Crossing around 9:26 on this fine 3/14/15. He reports watching a man get down on one knee and propose to his inamorata at exactly that time:

Old Pi Alley in Boston

Today's 3/14, and what better place to celebrate Pi Day than in Pi Alley?
