Gaurav's Proposal Story in Sintra

What is your love story?

She's my best friend. I've known her since we were teenagers!

What made you choose this proposal destination?

We both grew up in the same town and love to travel so I knew I had to do it abroad. One of our favorite hobbies together is hiking. Pena Palace in Sintra was the perfect location to get that high view we both enjoy.

What is your proposal story?

The proposal went amazing! We were on a private tour of Sintra and the Flytographer Maria was already waiting at the proposal location that was on the itinerary. She pretended to be a friendly tourist and snap a picture for us. Both the tour guide and Flytographer took us the the best secluded view spot in the palace where I can pop the question. Instead of posing for the picture, I proceeded to reach in my inside jacket pocket and took out the ring box. My now fiance was so excited she immediately grabbed me before I could kneel. She began to tear and maybe so did I :) I proposed and the rest is history.

Julia's Proposal Story in Sintra

What is your love story?

I met Laura on a dating app shortly after relocating to Boston for work. We instantly hit it off and have been inseparable since the day we met.

What made you choose this proposal destination?

I wanted to propose in a romantic, secluded location with beautiful scenery. After looking through possible spots in Lisbon, Sintra and Cascais, I chose to propose on the rocks right in front of the Santa Marta lighthouse.

What is your proposal story?

I had planned a trip to Cascais, Portugal that “happened” to coincide with mine and Laura’s 2 year anniversary. I was worried that it would be super obvious that I was about to propose, so I downplayed our activities for the day of our anniversary and bought a decoy anniversary gift to throw her off. At dinner, we drank wine, laughed, and I knew she had no idea what I had planned. I rushed her to finish dinner so we could take pictures near a lighthouse just a mile down the road. When we arrived at the lighthouse, we asked a woman to take a picture of us. Unbeknownst to Laura, this woman was a professional photographer ready to capture my proposal. After the snapped a few pictures, I turned to Laura and my emotions got the best of me right away. Through tears, I told her that she’s my best friend, the love of my life, and that I had something important to ask her. I got down on one knee and asked her if she would marry me. Luckily, she said yes!
