Women swooned and guys groaned when Isaac Lamb, 31, proposed to Amy Frankel, 33, both of Portland, Ore., in what he called the “first live lip-dub proposal.” The elaborate routine involved 60 of the couple’s friends and relations, who surprised the bride-to-be with a choreographed dance routine to the tune of “Marry You” by Bruno Mars.
