An Emeryville woman got quite the surprise on a recent tour of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

The tour was her fiancé, James Larmer's idea. The lab offers visitors a chance to look through high-powered electron microscopes. When Debra Winter looked through a microscope, she saw something pretty dazzling, an engagement ring. That is when Larmer got down on one knee and popped the big question.

The lab helped him set the whole thing up.

Winter said yes.
