"Cole took me to Bryce Canyon, a place we've been wanting to explore together. We set the camera on self-timer to take a photo, and Cole quickly pulled out a ring and dropped down on one knee. I am so excited that I was able to get engaged to my best friend in such a beautiful place! Cole was my first date ever, when I was 16 years old, and now he will be my last date. I can’t wait to spend forever with him!" —Chantel Petty
"I was steaming my bridesmaid dress when I looked up and locked eyes with the groom’s brother. Next thing I knew, he was holding the dress for me and I was weak in my knees. I lived in Manhattan and he lived in Dallas, but that couldn’t keep us apart. I moved to Texas in July, and on February 5 on the grounds of our church, he asked me to be his wife." —Laura Huff
"Jon and I had been dating for almost three years and were on our third cruise together. Jon loves to take pictures and make videos of our trips with his GoPro camera and so I thought nothing of it when he was setting it up for a beach picture in the Cayman Islands. I didn't know that it would turn out to be my favorite beach picture of them all." —Adele Stephen
"Michael and I have been dating for a little over two years, and going on adventures to new places has been a big part of our relationship. So for my birthday weekend, we planned a trip to Antelope Canyon. The forecast called for a 100 percent chance of rain all weekend, but as soon as we pulled up to the canyon, the rain had stopped. Antelope Canyon was a dream! Halfway through the canyon, under the arch, Michael got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was perfect." —Nicole Brennan
"Finally checking something big off our bucket list: travel to Hawaii. We went to Hanelei Bay at sunset, and I got my camera set up so his brother and sister-in-law could snap a few pics for us. Then and there, he dropped to one knee and asked if I would continue to take adventures with him and become his wife! Four and a half years in the making, I couldn't be happier. He had planned this and I had no idea. My heart is so full! Now Hanelei Bay will always hold a special place in our hearts!" —Tasha
