Angela and Alexander's Hot Air Balloon Proposal
Alex and I met on April 24, 2007, the day I started a new job. There he was sitting at the desk right next to mine. The universe has a way of working since I broke off a relationship just the day prior. He asked me on a date a few days later.
While our proposal story is a three years old (and we’ll be married two years on June 15th!) it is still an amazing memory and fun to share. Alex and I enjoy traveling very much; Naturally, he pulled this proposal off on vacation. We went to Vermont where we had a bunch of activities planned, included a hot air balloon ride.
The morning of February 18th, 2011 was the time of the hot air balloon ride over Quechee, Vermont. I actually begged him to cancel since I am terrified of fire and not the best when it comes to heights. He insisted that we go on the ride since he thought it would be really beautiful considering the snow on the ground.
Obviously, now I am glad that we didn’t cancel! On the decent of the ride, Alex started asking a series of questions in regards to the ride, our lives, trusting him, and lastly if I would be his wife.
Luckily, he told me to put my hands in my pockets (I am a huge klutz) while he took the ring out because I couldn’t believe what was going on!
Alex informed the Balloon pilot of the proposal a few weeks in advance so he was all ready with his camera.
We now have photos which we will treasure forever!
