1. La classique
Incontournable des amoureux du monde entier, la tour Eiffel a assisté à bien des démonstrations de tendresse. Ville iconique de la passion, Paris abrite chaque année de nombreuses demandes en mariage empreintes de romantisme, au pied de son monument le plus emblématique.
"I had a work trip to Paris and I ended up tacking a few days onto the end of it with one of my best friends. I'd asked Steven to come as well, but he had a boys trip to Seattle planned already. Before we left, my friend asked if I wanted to do a fun photoshoot with her in front of the Eiffel Tower. I said yes, she booked booked a photographer, and I threw a red dress in my luggage (one that Steven encouraged me to get a few months before then….). Mid-shoot that morning, the photographer handed me a card addressed to me…. from Steven. Hands shaking from the cold and my nervousness, I opened the card and inside were notes I had written Steven back when we were doing long distance. The notes were about all the things we could do once we were finally together. One of the notes (which I forgot I'd written) was “Go to Paris and kiss under the Eiffel Tower”….Before I knew it Steven came walking up the stairs behind me, as emotional as I've ever seen him.."

"I have two sons and I made plans for us to do a mommy/son photoshoot together (#threemusketeers). We drove a ways out of town to the countryside for it, and in the middle of our shoot, I started hearing footsteps in the distance. As the sound became louder, I turned around and to my surprise, it was Cory walking towards me, smiling the biggest smile I’ve ever seen. He took my hands and spoke the most amazing words to me. Then, he knelt down, asked me to please be his bride, and I burst into the best ugly cry and said yes. Almost immediately following, my boys came running back down the hill with two roses shouting, “OUR MOM IS GETTING MARRIED!!!!!” The smile on their faces said it all…. beyond a shadow of a doubt, this man is going to be in our lives forever."

"Drew and I are both divers, so when it was time to plan our next trip together, we decided on Hawaii! Before the trip, I'd recently lost my grandfather, who I was very close to, so I asked my grandma if I could take some of his ashes with me and let them go in the ocean. So, on the first day of diving, I grabbed my little bottle of ashes and hopped on the boat. Just before jumping in, nearly 40 dolphins started swimming by the boat. At that moment, I knew it was going to be an amazing dive…" Link to the full story on HowHeAsked.com’s homepage right now! Photo by @willtoexplore

"We headed out to chase the #northernlights as the conditions were perfect, and getting photos of the #aurora is a passion we both share. We found this amazing location, so Dale set up the camera and then suggested we take few selfies. Being landscape photographers, it's not often we have memories of us at the stunning locations we photograph, so of course I agreed (and was a little surprised he even suggested it). I was standing there waiting as he set up the perfect angle of us and the fast-moving lights, and I kept telling him to hurry (the lights move so fast, you could miss them) so we could get our landscape shots too. He said "okay, okay, just one selfie" and finally ran over to me. Then, before I even knew it, he was down on one knee proposing with the most beautiful backdrop ever…." 📷 by @dkphotographyau (and actually there's one more crazy detail about his "first" proposal plan – read it via the link in our profile)

"It was Casey's college basketball team's Senior Night on Saturday and that afternoon he told me he'd found out he was getting an award. He asked if I'd walk on court with him when they presented it and I figured, sure why not!? Both of our entire families were also there to support him, but I didn't think twice about either of these things. When we walked out together, he stopped be right around center court and then started whispering the sweetest things in my ear. I started sobbing like a baby when I figured out what was happening…" Watch the video on howheasked.com! 💕 Photo by @ChantalMarie

"After five hours, we got to the top and waited our turn to take a photo on the famous Trolltunga cliff. Danny told me to go on the rock so that he could focus the camera. He set up his intervalometer and ran down to join me. I was out the ledge in complete awe of the fjords and glaciers that we were overlooking. I could tell Danny was nervous but I thought it was just because we were on a a 10,000 year old rock formation. He let me know that the timer was ready and we could start taking photos. I replied, "oh my gosh we didn't talk about what poses we should do yet" as many people do crazy things on the edge of the cliff. He replied, "How about this one" as I turned around to see him down on one knee…" See more photos via the link in our profile! 📷 by @dannydphotography

I didn’t ask any questions but as soon as we pulled up to a hot air balloon truck, I realized that we would be checking off one of my bucket list items! I was so excited as the staff set everything up, and Landon suggested we go inside the gigantic balloon while we waited. When we stepped inside, it was so magical. I walked around in awe looking up at how incredible it all was, and then I felt Landon come towards me and give me a hug. He started saying sweet nervous things in my ear and next thing I know he was on one knee asking me to be his wife in the most perfect proposal I could ever imagine…" Photo AND proposal by @landonmrob ❤️ More on HowHeAsked.com right now!
