From the couple: Melissa-Vishal Paris Proposal in France
When we decided to get some photos taken in Paris. I contacted Pierre ‘in secret’ a couple of weeks earlier and told him about my intentions of proposing and wanting it to keep it as a surprise. Pierre was very helpful and we coordinated vie email over the ‘code phrase’, “the weather is perfect”, a sentence he would say during the session, as a hint for it to be the right time for me to get down on my knee and ask her the question.
Little did I know my girlfriend was planning a counter-proposal expecting me to do something during the photo shoot. It was beautifully executed and it’s really nice to have these moments captured forever. In my mind , I did my best to keep her clueless about when I would actually be proposing. Knowing me and my adventurous side, she probably expected me to do it during a mountain summit in the Himalayas. But, I had no idea that she’d planned a counter-proposal and had come prepared with a titanium ring! It was a total surprise for me and the fact that she’s so meticulous in terms of how she planned it and the ring. I just cant help but adore and love her even more.
We had discussed future plans in general, and I knew that he was planning to finish up a full year in Poland before relocating back to Singapore in the later half of 2017. We had two more vacations planned – Paris in March, and Leh, India in June. I had a gut feeling he’d plan something for either one of these vacations! I’m one of those who believe very strongly in equality in relationships – in taking efforts to make things work, in being an independent person, while at the same time being two halves of a whole unit. I thought hey, besides saying YES to him, I also want to let him know that I choose him, and I also want to ask him to be mine for life.
So I searched for a titanium ring that would fit his outdoorsy & adventurous personality, and carried it along in my pocket, planning to counter-propose, if/when he finally decided to pop the question! I loved the way he proposed… He made me laugh in his speech because he used some of our self-invented code words… it was so natural and heartfelt! Though I had to ask him to repeat his speech again later because I was so cold and nervous about the surprise I was going to spring on him that I couldn’t remember everything he said!
Plus, he got me a gorgeous sapphire ring! He knew I love blue and didn’t want a diamond, so it was truly perfect. I was so glad the proposal & counter-proposal happened the way it did, because he’d always know that I was already prepared to say yes anytime he asked! And I think starting off this journey on an equal footing is something which we will treasure and work hard to maintain throughout our lives together.
