The super short form: He planned a surprise trip to Paris (arranged my vacation with my boss & roommate!), and proposed at sunrise overlooking the city.
Slightly longer story: We’d been together for almost 4 years and he started planning a “super secret surprise” for sometime in the next 6 months. I was pretty sure it was a proposal. 3 weeks later, I get a call from him in the afternoon to leave work early and head home because my BFFs were there to help me pack for Paris. He had planned to meet me there, but our flights got cancelled so he was at the airport trying to get things worked out. We got to Paris late at night, went to sleep and he woke me up at the break fo dawn to go to the top of Montmarte, where he promised at a lookout point over the city. We then had 5 days to see Paris and celebrate.

I loved to hear all your stories so here’s mine. My fiancé and I met in school, we were like 9 or 10 years old, but we started dating at 18 years old (I’m 28 now) and all these years have been amazing.
A year ago 2015, we made a trip to Egypt and Dubai, I posted that story on another board, and I thought it would happen back then but it didn’t. So a year later when he was planning another trip with his mom, his younger brother and myself I didn’t set my hopes high because I thought he would never proposed with his family around! We both are very quiet and reserved, and he knew i don’t like loud or over the top proposals.
So off to Romania and Bulgaria we all go, we were really excited and the place that my Fiance and I were most impatient to see was Bran’s Castle (Dracula’s castle), later on he told me that he told his mom about his plans a day before we set off to Europe so she didn’t say anything before out of excitement and so she could keep the ring so I wouldn’t find it on accident, but he didn’t have anything planned, he knew he wanted to propose on draculas castle but he didn’t even knew if that was gonna be possible because we were on a tour and tours are always hurrying you everywhere. So a night before we went to the castle he started telling me all these sweet things like how long have we been together, that all these years have been amazing, that he loves me so much and things like that and I thought it was really sweet but didn’t think any of it. The next day we set off to Brasov and we met the city before going to the castle and my Fiance later told me that while his mom and I went to the toilet he told his brother about his plans so he could take video of it all.
So, we finally arrived to the castle and to his dismay there was a LOT of people there, it is like Romanian Disneyland so it is packed with tourist, there’s people everywhere, around every corner, lines of people trying to see every corner of the castle and it’s just crazy. So while I’m all excited taking pictures of everything he and his family are looking desperately for a little free and quiet spot so he could propose lol, I remember that it was hot as hell, I was sweating like crazy and when we finally got out to the balcony of the second floor of the backyard we were looking for a place to sit down and refresh (or at least that’s what I wanted haha), luckily his mom found this little corner with a window and she told us to sit down so she could take a picture of us, so I sit and while I’m trying to wipe my face clean of all the sweat for the photo I noticed that Boyfi was still on his feet and facing away from me trying to grab something from his messenger bag and that his mom and brother were looking at me with cameras on hand and that’s when my brain stopped working haha, next thing I remember was Boyfi turning around with a ring box on his hand, kneeling and asking me to marry him, I was in shock!, immediately tears started pouring down my face and I could barely said yes!! It was magical, his mom was crying as well, his brother was speechless, I don’t even know if people were looking or not but I was in my own little universe filled with joy.

- Wedding: November 2016 - Garden
He proposed to me in Nov 2015. I knew it was coming though. My mom kinda blew it that July when my Fiance told her he was going to propose to me around thanksgiving. But the experience was all so great! Wouldn’t change a thing.
He and his family came to the observatory and hung out there observing the stars. It was romantic because I noticed he couldn’t stop staring at me as we were getting a tour around the place. It seemed suspicious but i couldn’t tell what was going to happen because he didn’t even look nervous. There was actually not one time that ive seen him nervous since he asked me out that year before.
We went to a 7 showing of the stars and galaxies, and as were heading out to get some dinner, he stopped me in front of the statue of Christ, and bent down on one knee. He said, “Everything was great today being with you, but nothing will make it better if I didnt say these words, will you marry me?” I don’t remember really what he said because before he could finish his cute little speech I just shouted yes! 😍
This guy listened to me two years ago when he asked me how I wanted to be proposed to if we were to get married. I said gazing at the stars at night would be so amazing….this guys is the best of the best. So happy to have spent 3 years with him, and soon enough be married forever in just two weeks!
