John Chambrone hoped he would be able to include Brie Larson into his marriage proposal for his boyfriend Richard Owen—and he got his wish.

Chambrone, an employment specialist, bought tickets so he and Owen, a nail technician, could meet Larson, 30, at Ace Comic-Con in Chicago over the weekend. What Owen and Larson were unaware of was that Chambrone was going to propose to Owen as they posed in front of the Captain Marvel star.

The photos taken depicted Larson's surprised reaction as Chambrone kneeled in front of her and Owen and held up an engagement ring.

Larson shared her reaction on Twitter, writing, "Y'all I was present for a proposal and I am CHANGED. Much love to the happy couple!!!!"

Chambrone also shared the epic photos on Facebook on Saturday, writing, "So, most of you may know that I was popping the question today to my beloved Richard Owen and it could not have gone better! Brie Larson was amazing!""He said yes and we both put the ring on his finger. As we were walking away, Richard said he saw her tear up a bit," Chambrone wrote. "We are both so happy that we have been crying on and off all night. I never in my life thought I would be this much in love with anyone, let alone want to marry them, but he truly is an amazing guy who shows me daily how much he loves me and I am crazy about him too."
