Trevor's Proposal Story in Seattle

What is your love story?

It’s cheesy, but I knew Chloe was the one from day one. We were so comfortable together and connected with one another so quickly. I never had any doubts that one day I’d ask her to marry me

What made you choose this proposal destination?

Seattle was Chloe’s number one bucket list vacation destination. It only seemed right to make the trip even more special by proposing!

What is your proposal story?

The proposal could not have gone any more perfectly! The time and effort of planning and hiding the ring all paid off after Chloe said yes! She was a trooper for leaving her jacket behind on a blustery, chilly day, and fortunately forgave me! I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with the love of my life!

Alisharoz's Proposal Story in Seattle

What is your love story?

We met in 2012 through some friends who were both of our acquaintances. Our story like others had its ups and downs but we arent the type of people to give up on each other. We support each other when times are hard and always want the best for each other no matter the circumstance. A relationship can only succeed when you want your companion to truly be the best version of themselves and push them to be just that over the years. I knew she was the one for me when she stayed by my side when I was at my lowest and helped me over time to get back up stronger then ever. Thats what I love about her. She never gives up on me and genuinely loves me for who I am.

What made you choose this proposal destination?

PNW is one of Americas wonders. The weather, city vibes, and outdoor hiking and sightseeing made it my top choice for this proposal. Sunsets are truly beautiful.

Rodney's Proposal Story in Seattle

What is your love story?

We actually met on Bumble, funny enough. Those apps work! Lauren and I just clicked. We moved in together after a year of dating. Got a couple dogs and a condo a little while later and then it was just a matter of place and time for when I popped the question.

What made you choose this proposal destination?

I didn’t think she would expect it. That was key for me. I wasn’t going to do anything cliche or do anything that may lead her to believe it was coming up. We planned an impromptu trip to Seattle when we learned we only had a few months to use our Southwest credit. I had been waiting for the perfect time and I figured this would be it. I love Seattle and she had never been. It’s beautiful this time a year.

What is your proposal story?

Well, I had the time and location set with Chelsea, the photographer. We planned to do it at the Olympic Sculpture Park on the north end of the “wiggly waves,” as Chelsea called them. I just needed to get Lauren out there around 6! So, I set a dinner reservation next door to the park at AQUA by El Gaucho and told Lauren that reservations were at 6pm. It’s an early dinner but I played it off like that’s all they had. Then, as we’re waiting for our Lyft around 5:45, I pretend to get a call from the restaurant to tell me that they needed to push back or reservation 30 minutes because of a large happy hour crowd. I couldn’t believe Lauren bought this, but it worked. I also had to do this once Lauren was ready, otherwise she would’ve just taken longer to get ready. So, to kill time, I suggested walking through the sculpture park next to the restaurant and she agreed that would be nice. We approached the wiggly waves and I was a nervous wreck. I pretty much blacked out, but I recall spotting Chelsea looking all incognito like a Norma tourist. I knew it was game time. The plan was for me to take a selfie with Lauren and that would be the cue for Chelsea to know I was ready. Chelsea the friendly tourist then offered to take our picture with my phone. She set us up with the perfect backdrop, casually joking that she has done this before. Lauren didn’t see it coming. At that point, I got on one knee, chelsea pocketed the camera and pulled out her professional one. I don’t remember what I said and neither does Lauren. It was a wonderful moment full of happiness.
