Now You See It: Man proposes by spelling out "Marry Me" with Miatas

Posted: Updated:
(CNN) - From the ground, this high school parking lot looks like it's full of lousy drivers who can't park. But from above, those bad park jobs ask "Marry me?" in Miatas...Mazda Miatas.

"Originally, I didn't have enough cars for a question mark, but on the day, a bunch of extra cars showed up," Collin Burgess says. Including a Miata with a custom yellow paint job for the dot. Why would anyone ask a girl to marry him using Miatas? It goes back to Caitlin Lainoff's and Colin Burgess' first dates.

"I asked him to take me for a ride in his tiny car," she recalls.
That tiny red Miata ended up forming the top of the 'M' in 'Marry.'

Colin uses drones for aerial photography. He recruited Miatas for his marriage proposal through Miata forums and clubs, saying, "Hello, fellow zoomers."

So how many Miatas does it take to spell out "Marry me"? Forty-four. Colin spent the night before drawing chalk lines on the pavement.
To pull off the proposal, Colin pretended he had to go shoot some aerial photos of real estate. He flies the drone, she operates the camera.
"And Collin actually had to prompt me, 'what does that say?" she recalls.

He nervously asked, "Will you be my wife?" She said yes. Their kiss was captured by a photographer hiding in a bush when they arrived.
Though with a baby on the way now, they may need something bigger than a Miata.
