KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Hundreds of people packed Market Square in downtown Knoxville to ring in the New Year, but the biggest moment of the night for one couple came after the ball dropped.
After nearly four years of dating, Zackery Nitzschke finally popped the question to Ashley Nafziger with a special message on the giant screen in Market Square.
“I always said [I wouldn’t propose] on a holiday, but is New Year’s really a holiday? Who knows,” said Nitzshcke.
As you might imagine, the couple’s family was celebrating around the soon-to-be newlyweds.
