The Dream Proposal: Engaged Yet? You Might Want to Leave This Page on Your Screen When Your Man Comes Around…

You know, up until now, I thought my fiance’s proposal was pretty freaking spectacular.  I still do, of course, but, you know, there was never anything that made me wonder about the validity of that belief.  You’re probably thinking the same of yours, no?  Here’s a quick recap of mine: it was on a romantic trip to Cancun, Mexico, it involved a gazebo (I love gazebos), a beach and a cliff, and it was a total surprise.  It was great!  And, before this day, it was enough.  Don’t get me wrong, I still love the way it all worked out, and baby, if you’re reading this and I know you are – your proposal was absolute perfection and I love you for it.

But I really do have to admit – seeing these over at green wedding shoes made me wonder juuust a lil bit if my proposal standards might have been a bit low.

a rare photographic moment!

Amazing.  Right?  If you haven’t yet caught on to what’s got me so excited about this…

Have you noticed that this proposal has been CAPTURED ON FILM?

This guy – his name is Daniel – planned out the entire thing, including getting his photographer involved so that the whole experience could be relived, by him, his future bride, their families AND their future wee ones.  So that’s what’s got my my underoos in a bunch.

Daniel, you are a fine, fine gentleman.  Bravo.  BRAVO.  Here are a few more photos of the adorable California couple, from their super-cute engagement shoot.  If you’d like to see the whole beautiful thing, go check out the full post over at green wedding shoes!

Here’s another artfully captured proposal, this time coordinated by a fine man named Chris, who proposed to the lovely Whitney, on the slopes.  This incredible series of moments, which likely went by in an instant as they so often do, was nearly two months in the making.  Wow, Chris – I think we all sort of love you collectively right now.

Gotta love the victory cheer.  Don’t you adore witnessing those rarely captured on film moments when a guy is consumed with the happiness and love he has for his leading lady?
