Engagement Story – Kate & Gustavo

Recently, Kate shared her amazing engagement story with us.  Even though their original plans had changed, Kate and Gustavo created a very memorable trip together.

Engagement StoryHere’s how Gustavo proposed to Kate (Written in Kate’s words):

“Gustavo and I had planned to go to New York for Thanksgiving, but plans changed when our hotel was damaged in Superstorm Sandy and closed for business.  Instead, we decided to take a quick trip up to New Haven, CT, since both of us had always wanted to visit Yale’s campus.

On our first morning in town, we were headed out of the hotel when Gustavo said he had forgotten his watch up in the room.  I waited downstairs for quite a while and had almost decided to go back upstairs to see what was wrong when he finally came back down.  (Now that I know the rest of the story, this was when he was going back up to get the ring and trying to figure out the best place to hide it in his jacket!)

After breakfast, Gustavo suggested we take a walk through campus.  It was a beautiful autumn day, and I was having a great time seeing all the old buildings and statues around Yale.  We entered into an empty plaza (since it was Thanksgiving, the majority of students were gone), and Gustavo took the opportunity to get down on one knee and propose.  I was completely surprised by the proposal, but of course was overjoyed & immediately said yes!

Even though neither of us attended Yale as students, we’ll always remember the beautiful campus and the spot where we became engaged.”

Here is a picture of the beautiful ring Gustavo gave to Kate:

Engagement Story – Jessica & Doug

Jessica and Doug recently shared their proposal and engagement story with us.  We loved it so much we wanted to share their memorable and heartfelt moment with you.

Engagement and Proposal Story

In Jess’s words, here’s how their proposal story went:

“My boyfriend, Doug, decided he would propose to me on our trip to Disney World. Prior to the trip, my Grandmother gave him one of my Great Grandmothers rings to use for the engagement as they both knew it would mean so much to me. Doug had it cleaned, re-sized, and fixed, before we left. Our second night in Disney, we ate at a restaurant on the water. The food, service, and atmosphere were great! After supper the chef brought us a huge dessert platter and told me it was in celebration of our special occasion. Needless to say, I was confused. Now, they had just sung Happy Birthday to someone 2 tables down from us. So I was about to tell the gentleman that he must have had the wrong table, when Doug, beaming from ear to ear, got up from the table, came around to me, knelt down on one knee, pulled out the ring, and asked me to marry him! I said yes (of course) and was about crying (my hands were visibly shaking) when he put the ring on my finger! It’s beautiful. The staff gave us the dessert, ‘just engaged’ buttons, and champagne, and the whole room clapped for us and congratulated us. It was amazing! We’ll never forget it!”
