Proposal Ideas Pedra da Gávea, Rio de Janeiro - Brasil

How We Met

We’ve known each other a long time, and we can not tell from where. After all, we live in a city with 50,000 inhabitants, so it is common for most people to simply “know each other”. I (girlfriend) introduced friends to him, when he was single. We talked a lot about college, because they both did Law. We started dating 3 years ago and here we are.

How He Asked

For the beginning of history it is good to note that the bride is and always was super adventurous. The groom did not. Never. It had been some time since the bride wanted to climb the Pedra (stone) da Gávea in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, and on one of the trips they made, she simply ran into it – full of ulterior motives. We begin the ascent of the Pedra da Gávea, famous for the extreme difficulty of climbing, and spend about 4 hours of a difficult route and steep.

The course is really heavy and dangerous. In the opportunity we were with a group of tourists and two guides, but still we were afraid many times. Anyway, we got to the top, and after a few moments recovering, it was time to take pictures to record that achievement.

As soon as we went to take a normal photo of a couple, the surprise: under the eyes a small box appears and at the foot of the ear the question: marry me?

The 850 meter height of that stone was not enough to cause vertigo. The request was.

Everyone who stood there cheered and cheered, and the bride was stagnant, all she could say was YES. It was the icing on the cake for our adventure, and the first step to the greatest adrenaline of our lives: the altar.
