If there's one thing we can never get enough of here at BRIDES, it would have to be all of the marriage proposal photos and stories. Each one is so unique and special, they always make us tear up. Seriously, is there anything sweeter than hearing how a proposal went down? We didn't think so. So here's our weekly round-up from Instagram of our favorite proposal photos and stories from real couples who recently got engaged. Want to share your photo from your own marriage proposal with us? Be sure to tag @brides and #BridesProposals on Instagram for your chance to be featured. Now, onto the proposals!
"My fiancé took me back to where it all started two years ago. He fooled me into thinking we were going to a private event, but when we arrived, he had our song playing, the dance floor filled with candles and rose petals, and asked me to marry him. He even had our friends and family waiting downstairs to celebrate! Mike made this the most memorable and magical night I could have ever dreamed of." — Danielle Diprima
"He took us to our favorite city where we share so many fond memories: Laguna Beach, CA. We went into beautiful brick nook across the beach where he dropped down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Family and friends were hidden in the corridors and came out to congratulate us. In his words, 'We’ve known each other since elementary school, went to prom in high school, dated in college. 15 years in the making. Please make me the happiest man and marry me.'" — @ordinairyfish
We have been dating for a year. It was our first trip together to NYC over the New Year's Eve weekend. One of our friends who is a professional photographer lives in NYC, and she took us to Brooklyn Bridge Park where we could see a beautiful view of the big city. I had no idea what they have planned (my fiancé and our friend) because she always takes her camera with her and captures random moments. My boyfriend said to me "I want to ask something?" while our friend was taking our photo. He then got down on one knee and asked, 'Will you marry me?' Of course I said yes." —Marla Enkhtuvshin
"We were in Cornwall around King Arthur's castle. We went there for our 10th anniversary. He placed a tripod pretending to do a nice picture there. Then he played a video, gave me a kiss and went down on his knee (a bit trembling) taking out a little box from his pocket and saying, 'Ely would you marry me?' I wasn't expecting it at all in that moment." — Elianna
"Jordan planned for us to have a nice day date at Longwood Gardens. We were walking around and he kept looking at the map for a specific spot. We just so happened to "run into" his friend who is a photographer "taking photos for the Gardens' website." That's when Jordan got down on one knee, told me the ring was burning a hole through his pocket like a firecracker, and asked me to spend my life with him. I cried, said yes, and the photographer got it all! We spent our first night as fiancés at Rittenhouse Hotel in Philadelphia and had a beautiful dinner!" — Helen Monica Noga
