Sunset proposal in Matera, Italy

Sunset proposal in Matera, Italy

Thinking about marrying my best friend gives me those heart warming feels I’ve always dreamed of feeling. Chloe and I met at vet school nine years ago and after five years of a wonderful friendship we suddenly found ourselves in unfamiliar territory being in love with each other. Thankfully all these new feelings were mutual!! We knew we had found something special in each other and we also knew that we would be spending the rest of our lives together no matter what. We are currently having the time of our lives traveling around Europe and working in the UK as vets. I knew I wanted to propose to Chloe while on one of our many sunrise/sunset adventures where we always find ourselves saying “isn’t this the best moment ever?!”

I was carrying the ring around in my flimsy travel bag waiting for that right moment. I had no real plan, I just knew it had to be at a time where we were both feeling so happy to be experiencing a beautiful moment together. This moment came in Matera, a beautiful town in the south of Italy. We arrived and the sun was setting, we were blown away by the beauty of the town and so went in search for a bottle of wine (not easy in a town that resembles a maze!). We found a small local bar that sold us one of their bottles and uncorked it for us and we raced back to find a secluded view point to watch the sunset. We found a little platform with no one else around. While overlooking the town we watched the most beautiful sunset and then watched as the town’s lights came on and the night set in. In that moment we both couldn’t stop smiling and felt so happy to be experiencing such a wonderful night. I knew it was the moment. I poured Chloe another glass of wine, reached in my bag and then promised her I would love her for the rest of my life and asked her would she marry me and spend the rest of her life loving me. Of course she said yes. There were many tears from us both and our wonderful moment just became the greatest moment of our lives to date! —Olivia (Liv) Lemmon

Surprise proposal by the shore in Miami, Florida

Lisana thought they were starting a regular day of work. The Miami, Florida, couple needed to shoot a sales video for their side project. It was business as usual to dress up and schedule a videographer. Little did Lisana know that Regina had planned a surprise proposal.

They started shooting their sales video at South Pointe Park, an urban park with panoramic views of the shoreline. They stood on the rock jetty with the ocean in the background. Lisana was getting a little irritated with Regina, however. Although the couple had memorized scripts for the shoot, Regina could only remember a few lines. But Regina was nervous for other reasons.

In the middle of the shoot, the videographer suggested the pair try something different. The videographer asked the couple to stand back-to-back, then began filming. Lisana turned around and… Regina was on one knee.

“I completely froze,” Lisana told Equally Wed. When she looked up, all of their friends and family were surrounding them. Of course, Lisana said yes.

A few minutes later, a rainbow appeared in the sky.

Regina had planned a luxury yacht ride after with a private chef and a saxophone player to set the mood. The couple spent the rest of the day cruising on the water. Lisana told Equally Wed: “It was the best day of my life!”

Viral video of gay proposal has reduced Twitter to a weeping mess

Gay couple Brandon and Cody TikTok Twitter proposal marriage

A viral video of a guy surprise proposing to his boyfriend has turned us into a blubbering, weeping mess – and serves as a timely reminder that there are good things in the world.

In the video, Cody distracted his boyfriend Brandon by asking him to look at something in the distance. He then quickly got down on one knee and pulled out a ring.

Brandon promptly burst into tears and struggled to get any words out – but he eventually put out his hand for his new fiancé to put the ring on his finger.

The video was recorded in August of last year and shared on TikTok, but blew up on Twitter last week after it was shared on the last day of Pride Month.

Twitter was reduced to tears by the heartwarming, beautiful proposal video.

“Oh my god I’m crying. Beautiful,” one Twitter user commented.

Another person said: “I wish there was a ‘love’ button on Twitter because this is SO beautiful and sweet! Congratulations boys! I hope you have a very long and happy life together!”

I guess you could say, it was such a perfect relationship, they both knew right away and Cody got down on one knee on August 17, 2019 and asked Brandon for his hand in marriage.

Someone else simply said: “Yes you made us all cry!”

Cody and Brandon are now planning to tie the knot on October 24 of this year, according to TheKnot.com.

It was love at first sight when Cody and Brandon met for the first time in March 2019.

On the website, the couple describe their love story as being “not quite like any other”.

They met on Instagram in December 2017 and started “frequently chatting”.

The pair quickly became online friends and they finally met for the first time in March 2019.

When Cody visited Brandon in Virginia, it was love at first sight.

“I guess you could say, it was such a perfect relationship, they both knew right away and Cody got down on one knee on August 17, 2019 and asked Brandon for his hand in marriage,” the website says.

The couple are planning on having two children together and will live in North Carolina, where Cody pratices law.
