  • Mid-Air Engagement – Daniel and Amanda

    These two adventurous souls set out on a paragliding trip they’d been planning for months. Once they were in the air with the help of two instructors, they began sailing into the wind. As Amanda tells her sweet story, "We got close to each other in the air and Dan yelled out, 'Can you hear me?'" explained Amanda.

    "I yelled back that I could and then, out of nowhere, he yelled, 'Will you marry me?'" She continued, "I was so shocked! I yelled back, 'Certainly!' and then we finished our flight. Dan landed first and was down on one knee with the ring."

  • A Winning Presentation – Tim and Monika

    Tim and Monika worked together and enjoyed each other’s company so much, they couldn’t resist a romance although their company actually had a policy against office dating. 

    According to Tim, he wasted no time in proposing to his love and did it in a creative but very daring way:  during an office presentation! "One day we were in a staff meeting with our boss and about 30 other employees, I was giving a presentation using a slide projector, crunching numbers about a huge project we had coming up. As I was wrapping up the presentation, I said, 'I have one more thing.'

    "I flipped to the final slide and there it was for the whole office to see. The slide said, 'Monika, Will You Marry Me?'"
