Sometimes you want to go somewhere special and pop the question. The lucky ones choose the Breckenridge area to have their magical moment. The mountains are naturally dramatic and fill the romantic backdrop requirement for anything love-related, really. Shanna commented about their video on our Facebook post a few days ago, and we just had to share it with you.
The setting is the Snake River, which, if you're not familiar with the three rivers that feed Lake Dillon, it's the one that runs through Keystone. Dave asked Shanna to hold the iPad and it was all good to go. It wasn't a big deal for her to work with the iPad and audio equipment, as she had many times before, so it wasn't a big deal until the video showed Dave. And her parents. Then, she knew it was happening. Well, that's enough from us, you need to watch the video now. Shanna and Dave's comments are further down below, so when you're done with the video, scroll down and check out what these two had to say about getting engaged in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.
- Whatever your plan is, know that it may NOT always go 100% as you plan it in your head...and that is OK! (I did not plan for it to be cold, rainy, and for the road up to the initial location to be "closed for maintenance").
- So be adaptable and remember that it is not a production, but the question that changes your lives forever!
- Simply put...ACT NORMAL!! My proposal only worked the way it did, in part because I hung my "neurotic/type A tendancies" in the closet for the day, and had faith that it would all work out!
- Know a little about your Colorado surroundings, and remember, you're in one of the most beautiful places on earth, which gives you automatic brownie points for a romantic setting- so bring a camera (and may I suggest getting in contact with a photographer and/or cinematographer.) Trust me... she'll want pictures/video!!
