Katie and Cam

Proposal Ideas Paris, France, on a bench in Champs de mars

How We Met

Cam and I met when we were 17 and 18 working at a local grocery store. It’s funny because he’s a red head… and I’ve always hated red heads. I still remember him walking into our store on his first day thinking… ah crap a ginger. There the worst. Man was I wrong…

How He Asked

I’ve loved Paris and the Effiel Tower for as long as I could remember. I even use to joke as a teenager that I would only ever say yes to a man if he proposed under the tower itself. Fast forward 10 years and the love of my life and boyfriend of 6 years decides it’s finally time we took that trip to Paris! We spent months planning our big get away, and I was so excited to finally see the Effiel Tower. We ended up waiting a couple of days before going to see the tower itself because of rain and fog. A couple days before our trip ended we woke up to the most warm and beautiful day and decided it was finally time to visit the tower. The entire walk there Cam was being weird. It was so warm out and he was wearing a coat and so on edge. I just figured someone has woken up on the wrong side of the bed! Once we finally get to Champ de Mars, we decide to take a little break on a bench! The park itself was so beautiful and from our seat we could see the Effiel Tower. After sitting there for what seemed like forever, I finally said let’s go! I want to go up the tower now. Cam convinced me to wait a bit longer and boy was I glad he did. A few minutes later he says, “you know your my best friend right? Well I want you to be my best friend forever.” He then got down on one knee, I said yes and the rest his history.
