San Diego, California (KSWB)A San Diego man proposed to his girlfriend in a less than traditional fashion — with the help of a drone.


At around 3:30 p.m., Kevin Dilliard, 27, proposed to his girlfriend of seven years, Courtney Weigand, 25.

Standing on the cliffs, Dilliard handed his now-fianceé first-person view goggles to see what his GoPro camera, attached to a quadcopter drone, was filming 150 feet above the beach.

When she put on the goggles, the drone was hovering over, "Court will you marry me?" written in the sand.

Weigand took off the goggles and saw Dilliard on one knee, holding a ring.

The two weeks Dilliard spent planning the proposal was worth it – she said yes.
