Alyssa and Ryan

How We Met

We met 4 years ago this July. We met through a mutual friend that knew we would be perfect for each other because we both had a lot in common. We got introduced to each other at our mutual friend’s house and we continued to talk for a few weeks. Then after a few weeks went by he asked me to be his girlfriend.

How He Asked

I’ve always been in love with Disney and Disney movies. My fiancé knew how much of a Disney fan I was and wanted to tie Disney into the proposal in some way. He knew this castle would be the perfect place because it has Disney ties to it. This castle is the one that inspired Sleeping Beauty’s Castle and the castle that is seen in the Disney Classic Cinderella. The castle is located in southern Germany with the Swiss Alps behind it which makes it the perfect scenery! This is the most visited castle in Germany! My fiancé and his friend had this proposal planned for over 7 months. When we got to the castle we had to walk up a hill and on our walk up there my fiancé and his friend walked behind and we’re planning it out on where the best place to ask would be. We got up to the castle and we went on a tour through the castle. When we got done with the tour I asked our friend to take a picture of us in front of the castle.

After our friend took the picture my fiancé turned to me and said “You know how every castle has their princess? Will you be mine?” Then he got down on one knee and asked: “ Will you marry me?” I said yes right away and then tackled him into a hug before he could even stand up and put the ring on. I was in so much shock and had happy tears! I couldn’t stop hugging him! It was the most perfect and magical place to propose at !
