Mitchell's Proposal Story in Chiang Mai

What is your love story?

Like all millennial couples we met on a dating app and from the moment we met we bonded over our love for traveling. We both studied abroad and spent our entire first date swapping travel stories from our lives.

What made you choose this proposal destination?

Neither one of us had been to Asia before and we decided it was time for a bit of a more challenging travel experience. We had always been interested in Thailand and after a few weeks of research decided that that was going to be our next trip. The minute we booked the trip was the minute I knew I was going to propose. Thailand is such a beautiful country with incredibly nice people. This was the perfect chance to propose in a unique setting that captured our adventurous side, while working with someone who was kind and would appreciate being a part of our proposal.

What is your proposal story?

The proposal went amazing but the days leading up to it were a bit challenging. Chiang Mai is a lovely city but the most beautiful parts of the city are the temples. Unfortunately proposing inside a temple would be very disrespectful. We ended up going to the Royal Park Rajapruek which is a vast sprawling garden. We went at sunset to capture the perfect light and to avoid as many tourist as possible. Inside the park there is a building that has the traditional Lanna architecture that is famous to the region and a long pathway leading up to the building. About halfway up the pathway I dropped to my knee to propose. In my mind beforehand I had rehearsed what I was going to say. I wanted it to be simple and came up with the line "Wherever you are in this world I want to be by your side with you". I was so nervous though that when I actually got down on my knee all the rehearsing went right out the window! I flubbed the line but luckily she said yes! Afterwards at dinner that night I asked if she remembered what I said while I was down on one knee and this was her response "honestly as soon as I saw you on your knee I blacked out and just remember saying yes a bunch of times". I'd say that it all worked out in the end!
