the words, "Lisa, will you marry me?" scrolled across the TCF clock tower, Marc Ungerman proposed to Lisa Thoma. From his Centre Village condominium, at 410 S. 7th St., the couple had a perfect view of the clock tower, atop the 801 Marquette Ave

"We have always joked that my condo has the biggest clock in the world, as my window faces the TCF Building. Lisa always checks the time and temperature," Ungerman said.

But when Thoma checked the time and the temperature on the morning of June 19, she saw an entirely different message.

"I took both her hands and brought her over to the window. She started to read the message and I got down on one knee and opened up the ring box," Ungerman recalled. "I said, 'I love you so much, will you marry me?' My voice was wavering a little bit. She got nervous and got down on one knee as well. I think she was kind of in shock and I had to ask a second time. She said, 'Yes of course.' We couldn't be happier right now."
