Forget Dean, Jess, and Logan — there's a new most romantic dude in Stars Hollow.
On a recent tour of the Warner Bros. studio lot, one Gilmore Girls fan got the most magical marriage proposal the fictional town has seen since Max Medina sent 1,000 yellow daisies to the Independence Inn in the 2001 episode, "Love, Daisies, and Troubadours."
Mid-tour, Molly Larimer's fiancé, Sebastian, decided to pop the big question in one of the fictional town's most iconic (and romantic) spots: The gazebo.
According to Larimer, her fiancé had been planning the romantic gesture for months with her family members and the WB tour staff.
"We got to the Stars Hollow area and our tour guide had everyone get out of the tram and go walk toward the gazebo," she told Mashable. "We got up to it, and the guide asked us all if there were any big Gilmore Girls fans in the group, and my fiancé and I both raised our hands. Then the guide asked us to go onto the gazebo to do an 'improv scene.'"
"When we got up onto the gazebo, Sebastian told me that we were there for another reason, and he got down on one knee."
So I didn’t even mention it but Gilmore Girls has always been one of my favorite shows and Sebastian planned the perfect proposal and actually proposed in the actual Stars Hollow gazebo!! I’m so lucky and so happy to spend forever with him 💕 #wbtourhollywood #GilmoreGirls pic.twitter.com/i7yqU4hUTS

Oy with the perfection already!
As any Gilmore fan knows, the gazebo lies smack dab in the middle of the town square and is essentially the focal point of Stars Hollow. Over the course of the show's original seven seasons, fans have watched beloved characters share a number of memorable moments in that very gazebo — including a romantic toast between Lorelai and Luke after they got engaged.
And in the Netflix revival, the gazebo plays just as pivotal a role. Lorelai and Luke get married there, and she and Rory are seen sitting on it, having a very serious discussion, in the cliff-hanger of the final scene.
Larimer's been following the mother/daughter duo since she was young, and even has a Rory tattoo on her arm, so she was naturally thrilled. Congrats to the latest Stars Hollow couple, and props to Sebastian for pulling off the smoothest of moves.
