I offer this Snitch as a token of our love.

Harry Potter will always hold a magical place in our hearts. For superfans, Derrick Walker and Garrett Galvan, it's even more special. Walker recently proposed to Galvan at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida.

"After years of trying to talk my family into taking a trip to Harry Potter World at Universal Studios in Florida they finally agreed we could go," Derrick told The Huffington Post. "Realizing this would be the perfect location to pop the question, I started thinking of a unique way to propose."

Fanboy Walker went the extra mile and had a brass ring box custom made by 3-D printing company, Shapeways to resemble a Golden Snitch. It's engraved with the words, "I open at the close" as homage to the Snitch Dumbledore left Harry.

"Garrett and I are so thankful for all of the support from our families and friends for our engagement," Walker said. "It means the world for us to have support from loved ones around us."
