    Patrick popped the question to his fiancèe Annie at Splash Mountain, timing it perfectly to get this once-in-a-lifetime photo. The reaction on her face is priceless!

    "My wife and I have always been huge Disney fans. We both grew up going every year. She knew that I had bought a ring, so the only thing I had left was the element of surprise. I knew what her favorite ride was, and I knew that the last place she would expect me to pop the question was the drop...The Disney Cast Members helped with everything. It was perfect. She wanted a picture of her engagement so I made sure to get one," Patrick writes on Imgur.

    The only thing more magical than Steven's proposal setting — on the top of a mountain near Guanella Pass, Georgetown — was his fiancee Laura's reaction. "I’ve never seen a girl (or guy for that matter) more excited to get engaged!" says their photographer, Jo Ramsey.

    Elise & Paul

    Paul sent a private driver to pick up his unsuspecting bride-to-be under the guise that they were going to a lunch in the Yarra Valley. When Elise arrived at the winery, Yering Station, he was hiding behind a hedge with an important question to ask. But that wasn't all — the excitement continued when he whisked her off to a vacation in Fiji!

  • Elizabeth & Peter

    Elizabeth & Peter

    Peter initially wanted to propose to Elizabeth in front of the lion statues at the New York Public Library. He reached out to them to ask permission and mentioned that his then-girlfriend was a direct descendent of Thomas Jefferson's sister (the library has a collection of Jefferson papers).

    "The NYPL was very excited at hearing this and came up with a fake, 'private' exhibition of Jefferson papers — including sending out an email invitation — that Peter would bring Elizabeth to view. Peter then proposed to Elizabeth in front of her ancestor's historical documents (and some news crews!)," says their photographer, Laura Pennace.

    Mark got engaged to Lindsey at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. "I was so impressed by how much attention he paid to every detail and how precisely he planned the whole thing," says their photographer, Jo Ramsey. "It was definitely good luck — of course, she said 'yes!' — because the Broncos then when on to beat the Chargers 24-17," she adds.

    Stephen planned to propose to Katie by taking her on a photo journey of their relationship using his camera. He included snapshots of their hometown, asking Katie's dad for her hand in marriage and receiving the ring in the mail. "Unfortunately, none of this was seen at the time because his camera died! It was such a beautiful moment, regardless," says their photographer, Christine Yodsukar.

    Kevin proposed to his fiancée Rebekah at the Baltimore Harbor after over five years of dating. "I was completely zonked from all the stress and work from the week before that I didn’t see any of the signs! My siblings, one of my best friends, and Kevin all tricked me to get me to Baltimore Harbor, where a friend/professional photographer did a surprise engagement photo shoot. It ended up being perfect!" the bride-to-be writes.
