marry me!

Who doesn't enjoy hearing fun proposal stories? Whether it's a quiet evening at home or an extravagant affair, I never tire of listening to proposal stories. I recently reached out to some people to get their unique proposal stories, and I had to share them with you! Enjoy


We love to travel, and we chose Thailand for our first big international trip together.

The Yi Peng Lantern Festival in Chiang Mai has been on my bucket list for a long time, but my fiancé made it even more amazing than I could have ever imagined. You’re supposed to make a wish when you release your lantern into the sky, and mine came true right away when my fiancé told me he was going to tell me his wish and got down on one knee. Shortly after he proposed, we also released a floating lantern in the river, which symbolizes new beginnings. We spent the rest of the evening walking around the city with hundreds of lanterns flying overhead. It was truly magical!

It happened in Barcelona the day Catalonia declared independence!

We got engaged to the sound of canons in the background. While Catalonia declared independence from Spain, Andrew declared his love for me while our fellow Airbnb photo tour participants looked on.

My now-husband proposed onstage at curtain call opening night of a show I was starring in.

It was Carrie: The Musical. Yes, I was covered in blood.

dessert bars

If you're anything like me, you don't want a 100% traditional wedding. This includes dessert. While I did have a small wedding cake for my wedding party and immediate family, I also had a pie bar for the rest of my guests. Cake is great, but there are so many options out there now. Here are some of my favorite looking dessert bars!
