(Newser) – Turns out Pinterest is good for something other than bookmarking recipes and crafts you're never really going to make: One resourceful boyfriend snuck onto the site and used his girlfriend's "Dream Wedding" pin board to actually create her dream wedding, the Daily Mail reports. It all started when Ryan Leak, 27, overheard his then-girlfriend Amanda Roman, 25, tell a friend that she wanted to get engaged and married on the same day. So, for the next year, Leak set out to make it happen.

Using the 220 images on her Pinterest board, Leak chose the flowers, the decorations, and even Roman's dress. In June, the couple flew from their home in Dallas to Miami (he told her they were helping a friend move), where Leak proposed ... and hours later, they got hitched. About 100 of their friends and family members were there, and Leak even flew out Roman's hairstylist to do her hair. "When I opened the door and I saw everyone that I loved standing there it was so overwhelming, I felt so overwhelmed with love," Roman says. And she was wowed: "Realistically I never thought that I would be able to pull off some of the things I saw on Pinterest."

Thanks a lot, Ryan Leak. Women the world over are now unsatisfied with their own husbands.

Is this somehow suppose to get men in marrying mode after seeing friends getting gutted by divorce? You can take your romance and show it far into solar deficiency.
