You want an engagement that means something to both of you, and that means there’s potential for some seriously adorable engagements. For these couple’s this is definitely true! Read on to see 5 truly memorable engagements!
1. Oceanside Proposal
The water has a lot of significance for this happy couple! On their first trip together they went to his family’s go-to vacation spot. It was like a little bubble of paradise. He knew it was the perfect place to pop the question. Look at that view! Who could say no to that?
He got down on one knee on a rocky outcropping with the sea just beyond, making this a beautiful photo-op.
To top it all off, her engagement ring was actually her grandmother’s ring! She was so overjoyed to wear the ring her grandfather gave her grandmother 58 years ago.
2. Love from Paris
When asked what the most romantic city in the world is, most people’s minds jump right to Paris, France. With the Eiffel Tower, the love songs and the decadent food, it’s a city where people go to celebrate their love and this happy couple was no exception! Since she is a blogger, the couple hired a photographer to take pictures in the heart of Paris. Well, that’s what she thought, but he had other plans.
With a choice distraction, he took out the ring he’d concealed in his coat pocket. She turned to find him down on one knee with the river and the Eiffel Tower just beyond, creating a wonderful backdrop to an already enchanting engagement story.
Of course she said “yes!” The couple spent the rest of their shoot overcome with so much love, and a little bit of champagne.

He told his lovely lady that they would meetup for a picnic lakeside. With those gorgeous mountains as a background, that couldn’t just be the plan. He hired a photographer to pretend to take pictures nearby and caught him getting down on one knee.
She said yes and they couldn’t help but embrace. Talk about a breathtaking backdrop!
