Ashley Liai was just doing something she loved with the love of her life until he surprised her with the best gift of all.

The dancer was at the Millennium Dance Complex, her home away from home, filming a dance routine with her   boyfriend Phil Wright.

Surrounded by their dance community, the dancing duo performed the choreographed routine to John Legend’s, “You and I.”  Little did she know that at the end of the routine Phil would be on one knee with a ring.

Once the crowd settled down, Phil asked for her hand in marriage. After a proposal like that, of course she said yes!

💍SHE SAID YES! @ashleyliai -------- "You & I" ❤️ @johnlegend
