Tampa, Florida-- A flash mob marriage proposal warmed the hearts of hundreds of shoppers at Tampa's International Plaza Friday evening. 

Tampa native Clint Bertucci prepared the plaza's first-ever approved flash mob to propose to his now fiance, Mary Porter. 

Mary and her best friend stood on the first floor of the mall's central courtyard when, as the clock struck 7, it became clear something was about to happen. 

Hundreds of shoppers stopped in their tracks as Bruno Mars' catchy, "Marry You" song started to play, and one-by-one, friends and family members approached Mary with kind sayings written on cue cards. 

A choreographed dance routine followed as the anticipation for the big moment continued to build. 

Finally, during the last verse of the number, Bertucci joined the dancers and approached to pop the question. With the ring in hand, he got down on one knee...Porter said yes! 

The crowd clapped and cheered wildly as the newly engaged couple embraced in celebration. 

When asked how she was feeling, Mary said she was in shock, but could not be happier.
