The couple showed a lot of PDA at the Toyota Mirai Music Lodge in their co-ordinated outfits. Mark and Jean have been dating since 2012 and have their own music band, Alexander Jean. In an interview to Access Hollywood, the professional dancer said that for his proposal, he was inspired by their band’s song “Roses and Violets.”
Mark recounted how he decorated his Los Angeles home driveway with roses and violets which were out of season during Thanksgiving. But, he still managed somehow. The inside of the house was done up with vintage Woodstock inspired decorations.
Mark was nervous when his girlfriend walked into the house, but then he got down on his knees and proposed to Jean. It was all a surprise for Jean, as their family and friends were all hidden in the bedroom.
