There’s No Wedding Proposal Like A Final Fantasy Wedding Proposal

There’s No Wedding Proposal Like A Final Fantasy Wedding Proposal

When Seth Hay arrived at the “Distant Worlds: Music From Final Fantasy” concert last weekend in Toronto, he was met with a lovely surprise. His girlfriend, Cheryl Murray, had bought him tickets to a meet-and-greet with legendary Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu and conductor Arnie Roth. After the show, they would get to hang out with the duo, a prospect that Hay said had him “very geeked out”.

But Hay had his own surprise planned. It involved Cloud, Aeris and a brand new ring.

“As the concert went on, I got nervous a bit,” Hay said to Kotaku. “Once the time came, Arnie announced that ‘Cloud’ has a special message to share.”

(Don’t worry. She said yes.)

“Never have I imagine I would propose in front of over 3000 people in a Distant Worlds concert,” Hay said. “We did meet with Nobuo and Arnie afterwards. We joked, laughed, thanked them for helping out with the proposal and the two congratulated us on our engagement.

“My now fiancée is excited and happy to come out with something to remember forever.”


  • “Would you do me the honour of civil-unioning me?” just doesn’t sound as good. And people wonder why we think it’s discrimination…

    What a wonderful setup from both parties. Hooray for fantastic gamer couples! 😀
