Reader Bill Guerriero's photography is frequently featured on Chicagoist, WBEZ, Gapers Block, the Tribune and pretty much every other media outlet around town. Guerriero also raised the bar for those of us who want to one day propose to our significant other.

Guerriero proposed to his girlfriend, photographer Cristina Rutter, Oct. 6 with an assist from the Puppet Bike. There wasn't much planning involved, either. "I just gave Puppet Bike a $10 bill and asked him to hold the ring," said Guerriero.

"Rutter," Guerriero wrote on his Facebook page, "was almost too geeked to take a photo."

"Right after she said yes, it felt like the sky was pink and confetti was falling—kinda like we won something big and important," Guerriero added.

And if you don't believe in love, what's the point in living?
