Luis's Proposal Story in Banff

What is your love story?

We met in high school but we lost touch after graduation. We reconnected on social media after Courtney had moved away. Once she moved back, we started to spend more time together. About four years after that, we started dating. That was over SIX years ago.

What made you choose this proposal destination?

The views!!

What is your proposal story?

Courtney thought that the photographer was just another tourist taking pictures. As soon as she saw the box, she started crying and never actually answered the question. In the back of her mind she was thinking 'we need to give this girl our email address so she can email us the pictures' and was so surprised to find out that she was hired to be there.

Jacob's Proposal Story in Banff

What is your love story?

We met in college at the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater in 2015. It was sophomore year. First semester we had Accounting 201 together but we never spoke and sat on complete opposite sides of the room. Jake caught my eye but I never did anything about it until..... Months go by, that class comes to an end, and second semester rolls around. Coincidentally we were placed in Accounting 202 together yet once again months go by. It was April of 2015, there were 3 weeks left in the year, and finals were approaching. One night I was out at a party and spotted him from across the room. I recognized him from BOTH classes and was intending on talking to him until the cops showed up and the party was busted. A few days later I find myself thinking about him and who he was. I went onto our online class list and searched every single guy on facebook until I found him. One night I sent him a friend request and thankfully he accepted pretty quickly. Then I thought to myself - well, now what do I do? So, I messaged him a simple "Hey" and we hit it off instantly. The rest was history. -Kelli

What made you choose this proposal destination?

This was a destination we had been dying to go to for a long time. The beauty of Moraine lake was out of this world and once I knew we were going there I knew that would be the perfect place to propose to Kelli. -Jake

What is your proposal story?

The proposal was very simple, private, and romantic. I brought Kelli to a special lookout point at Moraine lake. Once there, I began to give my speech, got down on one knee, and popped the question. It was truly magical and something we will never forget. -Jake

Nicolas's Proposal Story in Banff

What is your love story?

We met when we were working in France and we were only colleagues back in the time, but more and more we had some feelings for each others. This part of our story was only the beginning of something bigger as we decided to move to Canada in 2017 and we could not be happier now ! As I explained to a friend, I didn't know she was the one, I felt it, and the first time I said to a very close friend that I was going to propose to her, It became "real" and i could not have been happier and more in love with her !

What made you choose this proposal destination?

I choose this destination because it was the place which have the most significant meaning for me as we moved to Canada in 2017. we are both animated by nature, hiking and fresh air so the lake Louise and BANFF was the perfect vacation destination and perfect place to do my proposal

What is your proposal story?

It went perfectly well ! apart the fact I was suuuuuuuper nervous and stressed, it went very well. Lyndsay was exactly where she told me, the scenario was great, we played our role perfectly and Gwen (my fiancee) didn't felt something was going to happen I planned to say some words just before my proposal but the only thing I was able to say is "veux tu m'epouser" (will you marry me in french), and to ne honest, it was enough ! haha All the photo-shoot was super super smooth and great, we had such a great time with Lyndsay :)
