This surprise proposal took lots of planning, thought and love went into every detail.
Thank you to Twilight Photo Video for sharing such an endearing surprise proposal.
All about the proposal:
Samuel planned this proposal for months. He put everything and everyone together and made this magical moment happen, right outside of Aide's house.
Q: Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?
A: Even though we both went to school together since elementary school, it was not until nearly 10 years later when we were introduced to each other at church for the very first time.
Q: What makes your relationship special? Tell us some things that you both value in your time together. (example: pushing each other to new limits, love to travel, huge comic book fans, foodies, etc.) What makes your relationship unique?
A: love to travel, and enjoy working out togetherOur relationship is most unique in that we both waited for each other since we were young. Our relationship is centered in pure and innocent love. Love that is passionate, always endures, and always perseveres.
Q: How did you know your partner was the one? When did you first know this in your relationship? (these may often be the same moment, but aren’t always)
A: I knew she was the one the moment I heard about the incredible person she is.The passionate, beautiful, innocent, and pure hearted women I always asked for since I was young.She knew I was the one much further down the line lol I invited her on a date and it was on our first date that she fell in love. I was so nervous I even dropped a drink on myself, but she loved everything about me; my way of being, my personality, everything from head to toe
Q: Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?
A: The planning process took years, but the 3 months before were the most emotional. To ask the women I love to be my wife and preparing the day in the most special way possible would get my eyes watery many times. The entire proposal was a surprise. That day, I arranged for her best friend and sister to pick her up. They asked her to join them for lunch. While they were at the restaurant, I arranged for the waiter to deliver a card on my behalf. The card saying how much I love her and letting her know that I planned an entire day for her today. I established a list of locations (Lunch, Spa to get a manicure and pedicure, Mall , Coffee shop, and Proposal destination). At each of these locations, I had a card delivered to her. I wanted her to look the most beautiful ever so I arranged these places so she can pick her dress, get her nails done, make-up done, get her favorite drink (coffee lol) and do it all with the people she most loves (her sister and her best friend). I hand made all the cards and attached the most meaningful pictures of us to them. After she had an incredible day with the people she most loves and was completely ready, they blindfolded her and took her to the destination; her house. Throughout the day while she was getting ready I was at her house preparing everything. I set up an inflatable screen to play a video compilation of all of our dates. Since I knew she was the one since our first date I planned every date to take a 1-2 second video and compile it all with pictures for the proposal. I also set up a red carpet, rose pedals, hundreds of candles, jars I made myself filled with white sand and tied with rope, and I also arranged a live performance from a singer and a guitar player to play the first song she ever dedicated to me. I arranged for all of the most meaningful people to be there; our parents, siblings, and closest friends. Upon her arrival, they drove her to the red carpet where she got off. As soon as they started singing the song the blindfold was removed. After the song played for a couple minutes I gave everyone in attendance a rose and had them all deliver it to her as the song was ending with the last people to deliver it to her being her parents.... she was in tears. She was then escorted to a chair in front of the screen where our love story played. It was 7 minutes long and ended with a short sentence saying, I have one more question for her. A pathway was lit up connecting the heart around the chair to me and as I walked down the path. I looked straight at her. I told her how much I loved her while I got down on one knee and asked her to be my wife.
Q: We’re all about the bling… Tell us all about that ring!
A: The ring is a beautiful diamond ring. It is square with many small diamonds and a huge center diamond ring. I had her look at all the rings in the city but told her I was not sure what I was able to get and she understood.To her surprise, I got her number one choice. lol
Q: Are you excited to start planning your wedding day? Do you have any ideas in mind yet?
A: Yes! Our wedding just passed last week. It was incredible; definitely the most memorable day of our lives. We just returned from our Honeymoon to Bali and are super excited to begin settling into our home
