Jay Prasad proposed to his girlfriend with a flash mob on Saturday.

HOUSTON -- The rainy weather didn't stop a Houston man from popping the big question at Discovery Green over the weekend. And he did it in a big way!

Jay Prasad used a flash mob to help him propose to his girlfriend of about two years, Lena, set to the popular Bruno Mars hit, "Marry You" Saturday.

Naturally, Jay says he was very nervous about the big proposal. He had been practicing the dance since October and got help from the STARZ dance studio.

According to Jay, he needed the help!

"No matter what you see in the Bollywood movies, this Indian cannot dance," he joked. "I have no rhythm whatsoever!"

Jay says Lena has been a blessing in his life. He says because of a car accident, he doesn't have the strength to go out after work, and that Lena loves staying home with him just watching movies.

"She's so humble, caring and sweet," said Jay. "I knew she was the one after our one-year anniversary."

Jay says he got the idea for a flash mob to propose after seeing the look of surprise on the bride-to-be's face in a similar flash mob proposal.

"I wanted that same reaction from the girl I love and want to marry," he said.

Congratulations, Jay and Lena!
