Ellen & Gary

The Big Question

I always teased Gary I would know the day he was going to propose because he’d be really nervous and talking too much. As it turns out, I didn’t. It was New Years Eve and I was picking him up from his apartment so we could go to a party he was helping host. When I walked into his living room, to my complete surprise, he was down on one knee. The proposal was very special and personal. My emotions went from shock to disbelief to complete happiness and we both were crying tears of joy by the end. Luckily, he managed to get the whole thing on video and we were able to play snippets of it at our wedding. Afterwards, we celebrated all night with family and friends ringing in the New Year (most of who were in on the surprise). It was the most memorable New Years ever.

Julie & Tyler

The Big Question

Tyler took me out for a mid-week date night to a cute little Italian restaurant we’d been eyeing in our neighborhood in Chicago. After dinner, we went back to my apartment where I was surprised to see the living room decorated with photos of us, white Christmas lights strung up, and our favorite song on in the background (thanks to our sneaky roommates!).  After dancing and reading a thoughtful card he had written for me, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. My only request when we had talked about getting engaged was that it would be just us, so this was exactly what I had hoped! The next evening, we flew back to Texas for an engagement party thrown by Tyler’s parents where we got to celebrate with our families.

Laura & Stuart

The Big Question

Stuart proposed on my 30th birthday - he had taken me to Glasgow for the weekend and I was secretly hoping he would propose. We spent the day sightseeing and took a boat trip around Loch Lomond before returning back to our hotel to sample a few cocktails. I knew we had dinner reservations, so we headed back up to the room to get showered and dressed - I really didn’t think he was going to propose as there were no signs there and so when he did get down on one knee with the most beautiful ring which he had chosen by himself, I was speechless. I was so overcome with emotion and was crying so much that he had to ask me again as he had been waiting about 2 minutes for an answer!
