David Figari proposed to Jessica Jones on the steps of Georgetown Law School at the start of the march commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington today.

The interracial couple, both 25, are from Tampa.

"I said yes," Jessica told reporters who asked them to repeat their kiss for the cameras.

David said he originally planned to wait until a November ski trip to propose.

He revised his plan when they decided to attend the march commemorating a historic moment in the civil rights movement.

"I even made her pay for her flight just to make sure she didn't know," he said, referring to their airfare to DC.

"I figured this would be a little more deep," he said.

"More meaningful," she added.
