James's Proposal Story in Barcelona

What is your love story?

Meghan and I actually met using the Tinder dating app back in 2013. Our relationship started off with her drunkenly adding me into a relationship on Facebook. I woke up the next morning to the news and accepted the relationship on Facebook. The relationship was definitely not love at first sight. Over time, our love began to grow more and more.

What made you choose this proposal destination?

I choose Barcelona mostly because it was at the beginning of our holiday trip and I didn't want to risk carrying her ring around Europe while we backpacked through multiple countries. I choose Parc Guell because I looked at some of the photographer's work and her pictures there looked absolutely amazing and I knew that my Fiancee would love it.

What is your proposal story?

My Fiancee and I got to the top of Parc Guell where it overlooked the city. I was attempting to take a selfie of my Fiancee and me with the city behind us and that's when Natalia (who was up there taking pictures of the sunrise) walked over and asked if we wanted her to take the picture for us. My Fiancee said sure and she snapped a few and then offered to take a few pictures with her camera and that she would email them to us later. I looked at my Fiancee and said it couldn't hurt. So we agreed to let her take a few. Natalia and I had chatted before this and came up with a keyword and when she said, "You guys look beautiful", that was my cue to propose. So I got down on one knee and made it happen. It was honestly breathtaking and my Fiancee LOVES telling that story to everyone!

Carolyn's Proposal Story in Barcelona

What is your love story?

We are high school sweethearts & we’ve been together since he was a junior and I was a sophomore! Our love story began during an unplanned double date and five and a half years later our love for each other gets stronger every day. I knew she was the one because she is the one person in my life that has never given up on me no matter what the situation. I am the best version of myself when I am with her. When the day seems like it can’t get any better, just a smile on her face and that goofy laugh brightens it up! She makes me happy at any moment of time! In my world there is not a future without her.

What made you choose this proposal destination?

I did the engagement at Parc Güell because I know she has been dreaming of going to that spot in Barcelona all her life! She once saw it on a movie and thought it was the most beautiful place ever! I knew she would love the scenery which makes the engagement so much more romantic!

What is your proposal story?

My girlfriend flew to Barcelona with her mother and grandmother on a girls trip. I volunteered to drop her off at the airport, little did she know that I caught my own flight just a few hours later. When my flight landed, I went straight to Parc Güell in Barcelona where I asked her mother to take her. When she arrived I was waiting there with Ramón and Sonia photographers from Flytographer to surprise her and propose. Ramón and Sonia helped arrange the surprise each step of the way and captured the perfect proposal! I can’t thank them enough.

Samantha's Proposal Story in Barcelona

What is your love story?

We met on a dating app called “Coffee Meets Bagel” or CMB for short, now we joke that CMB stands for “Coffee Marries Bagel” for us. I knew Alivia was the one during our first trip together in Toronto. We sat at this park bench & just talked about life & we both knew we just wanted all of our life moments together.

What made you choose this proposal destination?

Sinxe first time we had our marriage talk, was while traveling to a different city at a park on a bench. I thought it would be great to do it at the famous Parc Güell in Barcelona, a new city, at a new park & a new bench for us to discover.

What is your proposal story?

I’ve always written Alivia little notes in greeting cards. So I knew for this day I needed to make a special one. I had one of my friends make a special greeting card that showed us at Parc Güell overlooking the city (the exact spot we were going to be for our photoshoot) I pulled out the card & handed it to her. When she finished reading my note, I asked her to marry me & she said yes. Well, to be honest at first she said “why are you giving this to me now? We’re in the middle of a photoshoot” but she read it & then it all finally clicked haha... she said yes nonetheless.
