"After following the mysterious notecards on our kitchen table, outside my apartment awaited a black sedan to take me to the next destination. Upon arriving at the restaurant Palma, I was escorted towards an intimate cottage-like dining area filled with lit candles, flowers, and a guitarist playing our favorite song. Then Cisco got down on one knee and asked if I would marry him." — Madeline Fernandez
"Almost 7 years after we started dating at Marquette University, Ryan took me ice skating at Maggie Daley Park in Chicago on a beautiful day in January. We took two laps before the ice cleared for a zamboni break and Ryan and I were left alone on the rink. Ryan got down on one knee and asked me to marry him with our favorite city as the backdrop. Of course I said yes!" — Lauren
"We spent an entire day at Atitlan Lake in Guatemala with some friends and my family. They are wedding photographers in Chicago. So at the end of the day, we went to our hotel, Laguna Lodge. As soon as we were going up to the third floor, I noticed some roses on a deck. We got to the deck and he got on one knee and we started crying — it was a dream coming true to both of us. I said yes!" — Vasty Madrid
"During Christmas break, Wyatt flew out to see me in Florida. We went to the beach and walked until I saw "Will You Marry Me?" written out in rose petals. After only a few months, he got down on one knee and told me how much he loved me and asked for my hand. There was a photographer with my whole family there and dinner on the beach afterwards. It was definitely a magical day!" — Brealle Henry
"Tanner and I are high school sweethearts, and we have been dating for five years. He proposed while we were driving through the Hershey Sweet Lights Show in Hershey, PA on New Year's Eve. He told me about a 'great picture opportunity,' so we pulled off to the side. When we got out of the car he got down on his knee and lights that said 'Will you marry me?' lit up! It was so perfect and a moment that I will never forget, plus a perfect start to the new year!" — Kristy
