Katie and Parker
How They Asked
Parker and I share a love for wine and champagne and decided to plan a trip to France, particularly Champagne. We spent the first couple days in Paris before heading to Reims, Champagne for the bulk of our trip. While I was hopeful for a proposal, I tried to not overthink it because we were on the trip of a lifetime!
On Tuesday, January 29th, 2019, we had a scheduled group tour at Taittinger. The caves were so incredible, I just couldn’t believe where I was! They went on forever- and of course, there was champagne everywhere! As our tour reached its end, Parker and I got separated. He motioned for me to come closer, and I had to squeeze through the others in the tour group. Once I got over to him, I ended up facing away from him so I could see our tour guide and listen to what she was saying. After a couple of minutes, she asked if anyone had any announcements. No one said anything, and I wondered why she had asked that.
She continued talking, and then stopped to again ask if anyone had any announcements. At that moment, I saw the other people in our group gasp and start taking pictures of something behind me. I slowly turned around… and Parker was down on one knee!!! A photographer popped up out of nowhere and was snapping photos, and I was just so completely in shock! I said yes to the love of my life 100 feet below ground in the most amazing place!
