Nicole and Simon

Wedding Proposal Ideas in Downtown Royal Oak, MI

How We Met

6 years ago I started my first job out of college & on the first day of training I sat next to Simon. We found out we went to the same college, same degree, but never crossed paths until now. We quickly became friends & then after over a year of being best friends – we started dating & never looked back.

How He Asked

Since our first Christmas together Simon & I have taken holiday photos. This being our 5th year of this tradition and our first Christmas in our new home, so we decided to do a Royal Oak theme, which is the city where we bought our house. We decided to go downtown for a few pictures, after an hour my toes were frozen, I couldn’t feel my fingers, and I wanted to go home. Naturally I started complaining how cold I was – but Simon kept finding different places to keep taking pictures. The downtown tree had just lighten up & in keeping with tradition we took a photo in front of tree. That’s when Simon turned me towards him & dropped to his knee. I was crying so much that I had to ask him if I said “Yes!” – which I did. After 5 years of holiday photos together, this one is my favorite!!!
