Real couples share their stories of how they got engaged

Jennie and Curtis

Location: Franksville, WI

"My fiancé had recently received his pilot's license, and the morning he planned to propose he asked me to go flying. Before we left, he said that we were going to try to fly over his friend’s house to take aerial photos for him. Once we got to the area, he kept telling me to look for their pond. I was scouring the area when he said, ‘There it is—look straight down.’ I saw the words ‘Will You Marry Me?’ in our friend's uncut hayfield below. To my disbelief, I said, ‘Oh how nice. Look what someone did.’ As I looked over at him, he presented the ring." —Jennie
