Dov & Alyssa's Proposal Story in Sorrento

How did you meet?

Hinge

What is your love story?

Alyssa and I met in the fall of 2020 in NYC during the pandemic. It was definitely an interesting time to be meeting new people let alone dating, but something felt different. I quickly felt there was something special about her. It was as though we had known each other for years. I couldn't pinpoint it at the time, but as our relationship grew it became more apparent. I had never met someone so genuine and thoughtful. She is driven, passionate and inspires me to be the best version of myself.

What made you choose this proposal destination?

We were planning a Euro Trip to Italy for a little while. Alyssa's birthday is in October so this was a good cover to celebrate. I knew she was expecting me to possible propose after the New Year into 2023, so it was a good opportunity to surprise her. Italy and the Amalfi Coast has been a dream destination of ours to explore together so Sorrento felt like the perfect opportunity to plan a surprise proposal.

What is your proposal story?

We had the most perfect day exploring the Island of Capri on an intimate boat tour. We got back in the early evening with just enough time to get ready for dinner reservations. I suggested we head down to the Marina Grande to grab a drink and watch the sunset before heading to dinner. We got down to the Marina and most of the restaurants were full, so we took a little walk to the end of the dock. I spotted a friendly stranger (our Flytographer Claudio) and asked him to take our picture. He was more than happy to, and mentioned he could also take a picture with his professional camera and send them to us. We agreed, and once the photographer set up his shot and I dropped to one knee. I will never forget the expression on Alyssa's face. The pure shock followed by overwhelming joy as I declared my love to her and presented the ring. She said yes and the rest is history.

Best tip for proposing in Sorrento

Having never been to Sorrento before I didn't quite know what to expect, but everything played out better than I could have imagined. I knew the day of was going to be tight. Having the long day in Capri and then squeezing in drinks before dinner, but it was a risk I was willing to take. There are so many beautiful and intimate placed to explore in the city, it all comes down to personal preference

Julio & Alexei's Proposal Story in Sorrento

How did you meet?

Tinder

What is your love story?

We met on Tinder over 5 years ago but we always were able to connect and talk easily about anything. Knew he was the one pretty early on and couldn’t wait to propose!

What made you choose this proposal destination?

We were traveling to Italy and Sorrento is a beautiful town where I knew we’d get great photos.

What is your proposal story?

The big day was great! We went to dinner beforehand nearby and walked down to the pier for the proposal. My partner didn’t like what he say ahead of him and wanted to see the sunset but didn’t know that what was behind him was beautiful for photos. Finally convinced him to come back over to the docks and I proposed to him and he said YES! He was super surprised and we went immediately on a walk through the town at sunset for our photo shoot.

Best tip for proposing in Sorrento

Wish I knew how many steps were involved going up and down to the pier where I proposed. Definitely was a little out of breath. And at the docks, didn’t expect a boat to be unloading at the time of the proposal so we had some cars and bikes getting in the way at the time we were there.

Kyle's Proposal Story in Sorrento

What is your love story?

Alissa and I met during her last summer before attending DePaul University. We had mutual friends from the same high school. I told my friends "I'm going to marry that girl" after our very first conversation. We started dating shortly after meeting each other and almost 6 years later we are engaged to be married!

What made you choose this proposal destination?

We have wanted to visit Italy for a while and once we decided we were going to visit Sorrento, it was clear to me this would be the most beautiful place to propose during our trip.

What is your proposal story?

The proposal was done in Sorrento, Italy on the main beach (Marina Grande). It was a beautiful time during the sunset and the backdrop could not have been better. Our photographer, Claudio, was very helpful throughout the process and was open to letting us decide some pictures we wanted to do at the end.
