On today’s WGN Morning News, we’re introducing you to Jaysin Osterkamp and his now-fiancee Andrea Tyler. The Elgin residents are longtime fans of J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” series, so when it came time to pop the question, Jaysin put something magical together.

He sent Andrea on a half-day scavenger hunt through Elgin, each stop leading her to another Potter-like riddle to figure out. From puzzles to DVD games to family and friends, the day was full of surprises. Seeing that Jaysin is a professional videographer, he had a crew following Andrea’s every step. The result is an eight-minute video he posted to Vimeo. In just over a week, it’s been viewed 70,000 times, attracting supportive comments from viewers all over the world.

We’ll post our story here after it airs. For now, check out the couple’s full engagement video below!
