Read on to hear how host, Sissi, helped Nic make the proposal just right.
The perfect pumpkin.
The perfect place to propose.
The perfect place!
ExtraordinAIRy Couple #4
Ashley & Nic
As a new teacher, Nic didn’t have the huge funds needed to find a hotel in Paris in a prime location, so he went to Airbnb and found an apartment just steps from the Arc De Triomphe. The reason the location had to be so perfect? It would be the place he would take Ashley after he proposed to her.
They both had met in college, but it wasn’t until years later that they reconnected and fell in love. On a trip to visit her while she was working in London, they decided to take a side trip to Paris. He knew that he wanted the proposal to be memorable, and this would be a wonderful opportunity.
From the moment he contacted host, Sissi, she was intent on helping him make everything run smoothly for him. She met them at the station, filled them in on the transportation system, handed them maps, and then took them back to their place where a jar of Nutella was waiting with some fresh croissants. Nic said, “Sissi gave me suggestions on a romantic restaurant and wine store for the proposal evening and I followed her lead,” he added, “I gave her all of my ideas about location and timing and she gave me the female approval”.
The advice paid off. After a hike up the Eiffel tower, Nic and Ashley took a seat on a park bench for a dessert picnic. He waited for the clock to strike eleven, watched the bulbs of the grand tower light up from head to toe, and got down on one knee to pop the question. They headed back to their lovely apartment, and Sissi even sent a follow up email to make sure everything went as planned. Through tears and smiles Ashley had said, “Yes,” so, indeed it had.
