To celebrate Valentine’s Day, we’ve gathered some of the most romantic wedding-proposal stories we’ve heard, all shared to us by our wonderful Minted customers. So, get ready for some serious “Awwws” because whether you’re close to getting engaged yourself or nowhere near walking down the aisle, you’ll love reading about strangers falling in love and how their happily-ever-afters began.
The Couple: Jacqui & Sebastian
Our first proposal comes from Jacqui and Sebastian, who met in New York City when Jacqui was an intern at the company where Sebastian worked. They remained friends after her internship concluded, then started dating shortly after.
What started off as a normal day the park ended in a fairytale proposal. Jacqui explains, “We got engaged in Central Park. Sebastian invited me to go for a boat ride in Central Park on Saturday morning. I didn’t think much of it because we were always doing adventurous activities and a lot of exploring and taking advantage of all that New York City has to offer. We rode the boat on the gorgeous summer morning for a bit. Once we passed a bridge, I turned around to see 20 of our closest friends holding umbrellas that spelled out ‘Will you marry me?’ The whole park stopped and gasped—it was the most incredible moment.” Can you imagine the sweetness? Jacqui and Sebastian celebrated their wedding abroad in Bled, Slovenia, on August 1, 2015, and chose custom letterpress wedding stationery from Minted.
