The most exciting proposal I’ve seen live was a flash mob at Balboa Park in San Diego. Dozens of people were involved in a well-choreographed dance and the weather was perfect. Naysayers may judge these types of proposals as unnecessary and over-the-top, but I felt as though it matched the energetic couple well. More recently, I happened to be walking through a local dog park when I saw a young man get down on one knee, causing his leading lady’s jaw to drop. She nodded slowly, and brought him close for a tight embrace. I never learned what the story was behind this particular location, but no matter the reason, I found this intimate moment to be just as heartwarming as the first. **Below you’ll find (a handful of) the best marriage proposals out there. Some required extreme planning – one took an entire year – while others work magic in their simplicity. It is a beautiful thing, I think, to see diversity in the ways people choose to express their love.**
The reason why there are two first home proposals is to highlight the idea that being original isn’t the main focus. Both proposals highlighted the couples’ different personalities and were wonderful in their own ways.
