ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Here’s a story to warm your heart on a cold day.

Thursday, one of our photographers was out shooting video of ice skaters gliding around Steinberg Ice Rink in Forest Park, when Jake Buhrman suddenly stopped skating, dropped to one knee, and asked his girlfriend Katie McCormack to marry him.

When they skated off the ice, we just had to ask them about this moment.

Future bride Katie McCormack was almost speechless, “I just got engaged. I got a fiancé. He proposed to me a few minutes ago – on the rink.” What do you think? “I am so excited,” she laughed. What did you say? “I said ‘yes’ of course.”

Then he asked future groom Jake, “How do you think it went?”

“Well she said yes so, I don’t think it could have gone any better than that. Definitely could have gone worse, but it didn’t,” laughed Jake.

 Jake says ice skating at Steinberg is where they first got together and fell in love.

Congratulations to Jake and Katie.
