Marriage Proposal Ideas in At his families mountain cabin under a gazebo decorated in lights

How He Asked

We have been dating for over six years, we were high school sweethearts, and best friends long before that! He knew it was my dream to be proposed to under the beautiful gondola at his cabin, surrounded by the mountains.

So he went up the cabin that day with his mom and decorated the gondola in lights and set up a slideshow projector to play through all of our pictures together. Then, he spent all week creating the ‘FRIENDS’ yellow picture frame out of clay and he had the purple sign underneath saying “The One Where He Proposes”. (I am the biggest FRIENDS fan, I’m completely obsessed with the show).

He did this all with his arm in a sling as he had just had shoulder surgery a week before. I don’t even remember what he said as we stood under the lights, I was crying the whole time, but it was the most wonderful surprise I’d ever had. The fact that he incorporated my silly obsession into my dream proposal was so unique and thoughtful. We’re so excited for our wedding next year (where we’ve also thought to incorporate some FRIENDS themes)!
