Imagine dreaming of visiting the city at the top of your bucket list, finally making it happen… and being surprised by a dream proposal!
It doesn’t have to be a far-off dream. It’s totally doable. Anthony and Kat had wanted to see Prague for years and when they finally booked a last-minute trip to their dream destination, Anthony knew he had to spring into action to make an epic Prague proposal happen. We’re betting there will be a return trip in the future for these two. Read on for their heartfelt story.
HOW THEY MET
“We had many mutual friends for years and our paths crossed a few times in passing, but they never really stuck. Then one day a friend introduced us for real at a party and we hit it off — contact information was exchanged, a week later we hung out, and the rest is history. We dated for a year, but it wasn’t anything serious… until it suddenly was, and we were both head over heels in love with each other. We decided to be officially together as a couple and it just felt so right that I knew she was the one, but I still had to give it some time to grow.”
“Prague was the #1 international city we both wanted to see. We had never been to Europe and while we had talked about it for months, we finally decided that we were just going to do it and go. It was kind of last minute, but I knew Prague was going to be the most perfect backdrop and immediately got to work picking out a ring and getting it expedited so it would arrive in time.”
THE BIG DAY
“The proposal was planned for the morning, just after sunrise when the city would be quiet. I knew Kat would not want to get made up for a sunrise walk so we planned a sneaky ‘vacation shoot,’ which she was very excited for. It would have been a highlight of the trip had there not even been a proposal.
“When we were in the right spot, our photographer Natalie gave me the code word and I paused for a moment, took a deep breath, and then knelt down. Our words were private, but I told her I could not see my path going forward without her by my side and I asked her to marry me. She was completely surprised and gave me a very emotional yes. It was the best moment of my life!
“The next hour of the photo shoot was like being on cloud nine and I am so glad that we got to have the moment captured in pictures. Just looking at them brings us both right back to that moment, and our friends and family were ecstatic to see them.” – Anthony
