Hörnsberg / Hessen - An extraordinary marriage proposal goes around the world: a man from Hessen convinced his long-time girlfriend with an original idea. He hadn't planned that his marriage proposal could now be seen all over the world.
If you look at Hüttenberg in Hesse in the satellite function of Google Maps , you will initially only find boring streets, houses and fields. But if you take a closer look, you can see the huge lettering "Do you want to marry me?" On a field. There the part-time farmer Stefan Schwarz sown his girlfriend a marriage proposal in the field.

Google Maps: Application was not planned
When it comes to asking all questions, many men spare neither expense nor effort. But even if Black had planned something very personal for this special day, he was not aware that his work would remain immortalized on Google Maps . It was only by chance that he learned that his marriage proposal can be found on Google Maps. "It was not clear to me that the marriage proposal could appear on Google Maps and that wasn't actually planned," says the 32-year-old. His aunt from Canada drew his attention to it after various media had reported about it.
Marriage proposal from the air
Black came up with the idea of the lettering in the field last year. His best man helped him with the implementation, says the Hüttenberger. Together they programmed the seeder so that certain places were left free when sowing . It then took a few weeks for the corn to grow high enough for Schwarz to take his girlfriend to the field. The only disadvantage: the lettering was 100 by 200 meters in size and was only clearly recognizable from the air *.
Visible only with the drone
In May 2019, they let a drone fly over the field together. “I asked her if she could fly over the field with her drone because I supposedly saw wild boars there. At first she couldn't see it because the drone wasn't flying high enough, ”says the farmer. She said yes - the wedding is scheduled to take place in June this year. In the meantime, however, the application can no longer be seen in the field - according to Schwarz, wheat is now growing on the field.
