Olivia and Robert

Where to Propose in Victoria Falls, Zambia

How We Met

Robert and I met after a Titans game in Nashville! We were sitting with mutual friends at a booth at Tavern right across from each other. He found me on Facebook after that day and we started talking on messenger then talking constantly on the phone. He traveled a lot for work making hanging our infrequent. This helped us develop a deep connection first. We went on our first date two months later to Sinema and have been inseparable ever since!

How They Asked

Robert and I absolutely love to travel and create new memories together. He asked if I wanted to go to Africa with him to meet his family and I said yes! On our trip, we spent a few days just us visiting Victoria Falls in Zambia. To start the day, we did a helicopter ride over the falls for the most breathtaking views! We then walked the falls and got soaked in the mist! Upon returning to the hotel, we got ready and headed to dinner at The Elephant Cafe. We took a speed boat to a little island that serves as an elephant sanctuary! We got to interact with the elephants before being seated for dinner.

We were enjoying a glass of champagne when my now fiance came over to say they wanted us to have a private elephant interact. Still clueless, we walked over to where they had the biggest elephant of the group waiting for us. Robert took my hands started with Olivia, you know I love you and that’s when I knew!

He got down on one knee while the elephant picked up a box on the ground which held the ring and handed it to me. I was flooded with joy and said YES! Never had I imagined something so personal and beautiful! Needless to say, elephants are now my very favorite animal! We plan to return to the same restaurant for part of our honeymoon!
