"We met in college and became inseparable. We grew together and loved every moment. On our 7-year anniversary we went to our favorite place, the Griffith Observatory, where he asked me to take a picture at the entrance. He walked me out to find our loved ones gathered! He got down on one knee and asked me to be his. I said YES! And from that moment on he would forever be mine." — Andrea
"During our trip to Cambodia, we visited a beautiful temple in the middle of the jungle. We climbed to the top and as I was looking away, Vishal said he had a question to ask me. Unsuspectingly, I turned around and that's when he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! We celebrated with champagne on a private river cruise at sunset! After 6 years of adventures together, we’re engaged!" — Stephanie Jarel
"It was just like any other Wednesday (so I thought). Let's just say work wasn't the best that day. On my drive home, I was building up my speech about how terrible of a day I had, little did I know Devin was thinking of his proposal speech. I walked through the door and the whole living room was covered in Christmas lights. Devin got down on one knee and I remember saying "Heck yes"! Little did I know our best friends were taking photos and popping the champagne already in the other room." — Gillian Rennie
"Leo and I have been dating for two and a half years and one thing we enjoy doing together is traveling and exploring new places. Leo planned a road trip to Canada for us and proposed to me on top of the Skylon Tower, overlooking the Niagara Falls. He planned a speech for me but ended up reciting a completely different one because he was nervous! He totally surprised me and everything about the proposal was perfect." — Monica Park
"We were at Bear Lake in Estes Park, Colorado. I didn't suspect a thing, and when he asked to walk up to the rock in the frozen lake, I was refusing because it looked slightly dangerous and I was freezing cold. As we got ready to take a picture he turned on his side and got on his knee and said: "I know you always wanted a moment like this," and asked me to marry him. He knew my dream proposal would be surrounded by snow." — Maritsa
