FORT WORTH (AP) -- A North Texas attorney who uses billboards to advertise has accepted a digital marriage proposal flashed on one of the towering signs.

Tony Mancil and Mimi Coffey of Fort Worth went out Saturday night to celebrate the anniversary of their first date. Mancil, who works in the architecture industry, used an electronic billboard to pop the question.

He took Coffey to a parking lot for a clear view of the billboard that flashed a photo of the couple and the statement: "I love you Mimi. Will you marry me?"

Coffey accepted.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports the billboard will feature the proposal through Thursday morning. The billboard's rotating messages have been updated to say: "She said yes! Mimi you have made me the luckiest man ever!"
