Melissa and Kristelle

Where to Propose in Paris, France

How We Met

I met my fiancé 10 years ago at a friend’s birthday party. I thought she was SO stunning, but at the time, I didn’t think I stood a chance with her. So, I never even asked her out. Instead, we became friends and stayed in touch throughout the years.

A little over a year and a half ago, while living in different states, we were catching up via Instagram messenger and discovered we were both single. Soon after discovering we were living the single life, I expressed my affection for her, even after all that time.

How They Asked

Picture this: You’re waking up next to the love of your life in Paris on your 30th birthday.

She has the day all planned, it’s a surprise. You just need to wear something nice.

You get to the Trocadéro and you’re watching the sunrise over the Eiffel Tower.

After getting an espresso, you take a walk to a secluded area where the most beautiful picnic is displayed.

There’s candles, croissants, champagne, macaroons, pillows, blankets, and the cutest stuffed flamingo.

She gives you a pair of headphones. Now you’re watching a movie that is filled with all your loved ones wishing you a happy birthday. Your girlfriend is singing your song in the background. And of course, you’re ugly crying.

At the end of the video you turn around, there she is, down on one knee, holding a ring, asking you to marry her.
