With so many wedding chapels nearby it's a miracle Brooke Hogan didn't race from engagement to married in Vegas this weekend!
She was even already wearing white for the big moment.
Ecstatic shots on her instagram feed capture the moment when Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Phil Costa proposed on bended knee with the Paris hotel's Eiffel Tower in the background and then slipped the ring on his 25-year-old bride-to-be.

Brooke Hogan has one thing to say to people who criticize her for her decision to unveil an arty nude photo in front of her father recently: leave me alone!
"Im SO sick of people saying me and my dad are in some perverted relationship," she Tweeted on Saturday morning, days after revealing the photo in Miami. "Go home and do your own thing! Stop picking on me!"
For his part, Hulk Hogan didn't scold his daughter for posing completely nude for PETA. In fact, he embraced the concept – sort of.
When Brooke, 23, brought her dad along to the unveiling of the photo at Miami's Cafeina Lounge on Thursday, Papa Hogan was actually photographed with the shot, a source tells PEOPLE.

Talk about an awkward birthday surprise!
To celebrate dad Hulk Hogan turning 58, Brooke Hogan brought him along as her date to the unveiling of a nude photo exhibit at Miami's Cafeina Lounge on Thursday. In the black-and-white portrait taken by Jordan Michael Zuniga, the 23-year-old poses completely nude while entrapped in a cage, a nod to the cruelty faced by animals.
"I've always had a love for animals, and I've seen abuse firsthand. It ignited my passion for saving them even more," the star, who has a Pomeranian, told the Miami New Times. "The worst part is that they are voiceless in our world."

Jail has changed Nick Hogan for the worse, sister Brooke says.
"They had broken his spirit," Brooke Hogan, 20, tells PEOPLE. "When they put him in solitary, he was on the outs. I was worried about him, and his safety, and his well-being."
But now that Nick's out of a 28-day stint in solitary where he was rapidly losing weight, and in the general population with more privileges, he's turning back into the little brother she knew.
"We get to visit him three times a week like everybody else, but it sucks," she says. "I can't just walk over to his room and give him a hug, or talk to him, or confide in him. ... At least he's not locked in hell, basically. And his personality is slowly coming back. I bring that out of him."

Brooke Hogan issued an apology for making what she now calls false allegations that her father Hulk abused her mother.
"I did it under significant pressure from my mother," Hogan, 20, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. "It was only after I learned all the facts that I realized I made a big mistake in signing it."
Hogan released the statement after a tabloid reported that she had signed a legal affidavit accusing her father, whose real name is Terry Bollea, of verbally and physically abusing wife Linda during their marriage.
Linda, 48, filed for divorce last November, and her attorney told PEOPLE it was going to be "war."
Her attorney was not available for comment. A rep for Hulk Hogan declined to comment.

As the nasty divorce between Hulk Hogan and his estranged wife Linda slogs on in the courts, their daughter Brooke sees a silver lining.
"I don't think our family is falling apart or getting destroyed," the 20-year-old told Access Hollywood. "I just think it's rearranging itself in the way God meant it to be – because it wasn't working how it was."
As for her 48-year-old mother publicly dating a 19-year-old (one of Brooke's former classmates), the aspiring singer admitted that it's "kind of disappointing."
"She was always my hero when I was growing up," Brooke said. "I feel like I have to be the mother now."

Brooke Hogan is lashing out about "lies [that] were told" at her brother Nick Bollea's trial last week.
In a MySpace post, which she soon pulled, Hogan criticized the public perception of her brother. "Before you judge anybody, make sure you really know them," she writes. "I promise you if you were to meet my brother he would give you the shirt off his back."
Bollea, 17, is serving an eight-month jail sentence after pleading no contest to charges of felony reckless driving following an Aug. 26, 2007 car crash that left his best friend, John Graziano, critically injured.
In her angry MySpace post – where she lists her mood as "pissed off" – Hogan challenges testimony in the trial, writing, "A LOT of lies were told in that trial. Believe me. And it wasn't from us," but stops short of making any other specific claims.
Hogan soon removed her post, and put up another one in its place. In her latest blog entry, she simply writes, "I have the truth on my side. And the truth will set everyone straight sooner or later. PEACE."
Hogan's rep was not available for comment.
