I am sure the guys behind Airbnb a vacation rental website, didn’t think they would be facilitating marriage. However, that’s exactly what they did for one happy couple, Nicolas & Ashley from Columbus.

@nicolasdavis tweeted to his followers that he proposed to his girlfriend whilst staying at an apartment in Paris he had rented from Airbnb.

On a side not the couple from Ohio are also competing in a ‘Ultimate Wedding Contest‘, which makes this a little less romantic (grumble grumble).

Nonetheless, it’s great to see just how Airbnb has integrated deeply into people’s lives.
