Kevin's Proposal Story in Lake Tahoe

What is your love story?

We met at local Crossfit gym in North Carolina and from the moment we met, we both knew that was it.

What made you choose this proposal destination?

Emerald Cove and South Lake Tahoe sunrises are some of Danielle's happiest/best memories as a child and I wanted to make that place even more special.

What is your proposal story?

We woke up to go watch the sunrise at Emerald Bay vista point and as we were sitting there together, Alyssa (our photographer) was disguised as just another tourist out there snapping photos. Little did Danielle, she was out there capture the very moment I proposed. It was absolutely magical; no makeup or fancy clothes, we both had just rolled out of bed. Everything about it was perfect.

Ryan's Proposal Story in Lake Tahoe

What is your love story?

We are college sweethearts who were set up by two friends who thought we would have fun and get along well. We met at an undergrad fraternity party at FSU. Needless to say, 5 years later, I knew she was the one I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.

What made you choose this proposal destination?

Being from South Florida and now living in Dallas, Melissa had never seen snow. I wanted to do something special for her birthday, so I planned a trip to Lake Tahoe so that she could finally see it (and I knew it would be an unforgettable place for the proposal).

What is your proposal story?

I told Melissa to be ready by a certain time so that we could take pictures before her birthday dinner. There was a certain spot by the lake I had pointed out earlier in the weekend, so we went there and took selfies down by the lake. After a few, our photographer Nicky who was casually there asked if we wanted her to take a picture on our iPhone. Once she had positioned us where the lighting was good, I turned Melissa toward me and got down on one knee, and the rest is history.
