NEW YORK, NY -- An Oregon couple's wedding proposal video is one of three finalists in an NBC contest.
Tony Palazzo and Erica Waterman's proposal video placed in the Kathie Lee and Hoda's Pop the Question contest.
Palazzo staged his proposal to Waterman with a little help from Santa Claus. He popped the question while the two were both seated on Santa's lap.
However, Palazzo, a vice president at a marketing firm, said that he had no idea Waterman would actually ask Santa for a 'diamond ring.'
Waterman, a retail manager, and Palazzo fell in love in 2012, according to Amy Rosenberg of Rosenberg Marketing. Waterman has two children and Palazzo has stepped comfortably into the roll of parent.
"Our two girls are the sweetest, beautiful girls I have ever seen and am so proud with how far we’ve all come," said Palazzo.
Viewers were asked to vote for their favorite proposal video online.
