Madison and Jeremy

Engagement Proposal Ideas in Mammoth, CA

How We Met

Jeremy and I met on the social media app Tinder 3 years ago. We both knew from the first date that this was different. I fell in love with him and his weird sense of humor so quickly. He is the funniest person in the room and I always imagined his proposal would be goofy and quirky but to my surprise, it was the most romantic moment of our entire lives.

How He Asked

Every October for the last 5 years my family has traveled to Mammoth Lakes, CA. It is my absolute favorite place in the world. Three years ago I brought Jeremy with us for the first time and he fell in love with it as well. Jeremy and I had been talking about getting engaged for a long time, but to my knowledge, he wanted to sell his truck before we got engaged. Well, this year we drove up to Mammoth in his truck- Hence my surprise when he proposed! It was Friday morning and a cool 37 degrees outside. Jeremy asked me if I wanted to go down to the lake to the outdoor chapel.

This chapel is nestled in the forest between two lakes and is my favorite spot in mammoth. I had told him years prior that this is where I would want to get married. We walked down to the lake and waited for people to leave. We were completely alone in the forest with the sound of the lakes beside us. It was so magical when Jeremy hugged me and started to tell me all of the reasons he loved me, how I’m his best friend, and how we will always be together.

Us being the goofy couple we are- I asked him “Why are you being so nice to me today?!”. He then asked me “Do you know why I brought you here?”. To which I responded, “Um, vacation?”. He giggled and responded, “There’s another reason too”. Next thing I knew he was down on one knee with the most beautiful ring I had ever seen shining up at me. We both cried for what felt like minutes and when he finally asked I yelled YES!

Shaking out of excitement and the freezing weather we struggled to put my ring on! We laughed and cried and called our families! It was the happiest moment of our entire lives. Alone in the forest in our happiest place in the world. I couldn’t have asked for a better proposal. I cannot wait to marry my best friend.
