I LOVE this thread, and I am so excited I have pictures that I can post ๐Ÿ˜€ I had planned a day downtown Chicago to walk around the field museum and then Millenium Park to see the Bean.  (My Fiance hasn’t seen all of the museums downtown so we are seeing them one at a time, and we always go to the BEan everytime we are downtown). We ahd been talking about getting engaged for a while, so he had been trying to come up with a way to surprise me, and figured if I was planning the day I wouldn’t be suspicious ๐Ÿ˜€ haha, he was right! Anyway, after it happened a woman came up to us and said that she hoped it was ok, but when she saw what was happening she started taking pictures and wanted to email them to us.  We were so excited! We don’t have one of him down on one knee, but we have a few of our emotional time afterwards, it was so cool to see, and be able to show our families!

(Funny side story: The guy in the last pic waited until we were out of our little bubble so he could be the first one to say congratulations and good luck! haha)

I had goosebumps the entire time reading this thread! I wish I had pictures of when my fi proposed! We were in a tent and NO ONE else was at the campground… so I highly doubt there are any!

My fiance and I had taken a 2 week vacation to the island of Boracay in the Philippines!

He rented a kayak for us, so we kayaked around the island and stopped on a secluded beach…

Then… as the sun was setting over the ocean, he led me out into the water and proposed!  (This is a screenshot from a video he had done on his camera!)

Then, he organized a gorgeous dinner for two on the sundeck of a nearby resort with all of our favorite food!  It was THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE, thus far!!!

He popped the question today, after our carriage ride. He bought me the most amazing ring ever!

My fiancé asked me to open a gift… It was a beautiful silver picture frame.  This is the moment that I realized that he had engraved “Will you marry me?” on the bottom.  I didn’t even notice that he had out his cell phone to take a picture.  Sorry that’s it’s blurry!

J and I got engaged in Las Vegas in front of the Bellagio fountains — it was perfect!! We went to dinner at SW Steakhouse, he had our friends (who were in Vegas with us) pick us up from dinner in a limo that took us to the fountains. As soon as the show started, he got down on one knee and proposed!! Luckily our friends were there to take tons of pictures and video of it all. It was the BEST day ever.

Another Chicago proposal in this thread!  My Fiance proposed on the observation deck of the Sears (Willis) Tower, in the sky box thingy.  It was in a window with a photographer, so we were able to buy the photos afterward!
