A surprise marriage proposal in Prague with our latest couple from America L&T

While ‘L’  was on her European vacation with her best friend,  her boyfriend ‘T’ decided to secretly fly to Prague and surprise her with a marriage proposal.  ‘T’ being the kind of guy that he is really wanted to make it very special.  After several email exchanges of ideas, locations and logistics  –  we had a plan.  With some fantastic local musicians, one of our favorite florists and of course a truly wonderful location (where the nights dinner was to also take place) the only thing we needed was to make sure everything went according to plan.

On one of those gorgeous summer days where the warmth of the sun lit everything in a golden pastel  ‘L’ and her best friend were walking around Kampa when she received a very odd text message. It said to go down the small walkway that is behind the fountain and a big surprise awaits you. Curiously (and being encouraged by her friend) she walked down and found herself in front one of the most beautiful views of the Charles Bridge as a string quartet began playing one of her favorite songs. Next to the musicians was a vase containing a dozen red roses and underneath a placard with her initials. Placed underneath a beautiful love letter with her initials.  As ‘L’ began to read, she immediately teared up, as she finished she began looking around and then ‘T’ popped out from behind the corner with a very big grin and immediately hugged her.  After their heartfelt embrace, the music changed again to their song and he proceeded  to drop to his knee and proposed. You really could not plan for a more special moment than that. I do hope the photos capture that late afternoon and the emotions these two expressed for each other.

Truth is – sometimes a little planning goes a long way in creating the most memorable and unique days in one’s lives. Congrats to these two and thanks for allowing us to share such a private and memorable moment.
