"After 2.5 years of dating, my fiancé proposed after a crazy Texas thunderstorm in his parents' beautiful backyard. After getting me out of the house, he set up the patio with a table that had flowers, photos, and a journal with his written promise to go through life together forever. Our engagement included a double rainbow, a proposal in the rain, and a lightening strike. Sparks flew the night we got engaged — literally!" — Kirby Nicole
"After four years of dating, Willy and I took our first trip to Disney World. It was our first day in Magic Kingdom when Willy got down on one knee in front of the Alice in Wonderland teacup ride. Crowds of people cheered and clapped as he asked me to be his forever and always — it was like a scene from a movie! I felt like the luckiest girl in the world. The magic is real!" — Sally M.
"It had been almost 3 years, but I had no idea what I was in store for on our NYE ski trip to Breckenridge. We stopped at Sapphire Point for some pictures before getting in. Lost in the scenery, Keith grabbed me by the hands. I resisted, 'What are you doing? What's going on?' On one knee he said an amazing speech, pulled out the ring, and asked me to be his wife. I screamed 'YES' in disbelief." — Alison Harre
"We have been dating for 5 years and we are big into hiking and exploring the outdoors. He took me out to Abraham Lake in Alberta, Canada where the lake freezes in the winter and traps the methane gas creating the most magical frozen bubbles. He surprised me with the sun setting behind the mountains on the frozen lake and asked me if I would be his forever adventure partner. It was perfect!"— Mandy Lok
"He came up to visit for the weekend, and I was anxiously waiting for him to pop the question (only to be let down as I dropped him off at the airport with just a kiss and a hug goodbye). Little did I know, just a few hours later I would be lured to a park to see my best friend waiting for me. I was instantly surrounded by my best friends and family, I was officially ENGAGED!" — Heidi Oslin
