This bouquet toss had a big twist at the end.

The heterosexual wedding tradition of the bouquet toss -- where the catcher is viewed as the next single woman likely to wed -- had a same-sex surprise at a recent wedding reception in San Diego.

In a video of the toss, courtesy of gay blogger JoeMyGod, a bride named Stephanie fakes out those hoping to catch the bouquet and instead hands the flowers to a gay friend. That man's partner then drops to one knee and proposes, which brings his partner to tears as the crowd hoots and hollers. One half of the couple later posted on JoeMyGod's site:

"LOL... I'm the guy sitting and crying in the video... How did you get this?! My partner Mark and I have been together for 9 yrs and recently moved to Portland. We came home to San Diego for Stephanie and Tony's wedding and Mark surprised me... I said yes. ;)"
