Danielle and Nathanael | Hot Air Balloon Proposal

How we met: Nathanael and I are high school sweethearts! Long story short, we wanted a great match for each other and tried to set each other up with other people. In the end, we fell for each other and are planning a happily ever after!

How he asked: Welcome to Green Lake, Wisconsin! My family owns a cottage on this charming lake and a lot of my favorite memories growing up were times spent a the lake.

Nathanael and I dated for five years so he spent a lot of summers jet skiing, boating, and living the lake life with my family. He knows how important this place is to me and took advantage of that during the proposal!

Nathanael surprised me with a hot air balloon ride-something I had always wanted to do! It was extra special because we flew across the lake-getting to see my favorite place from a whole new point of view. As if that wasn’t enough of a surprise, when I turned around into the hot air balloon basket, I found him on one knee with a beautiful diamond ring waiting to be placed on my hand!

The night was perfect-only my parents knew! So we spent the rest of the evening sharing the news and living in the moment of the beginning of our engagement!

We are looking forward to our wedding in August which, if you couldn’t guess, will also be on the shores of beautiful Green Lake at the Heidel House Resort!
