Epic Emmy Proposal Leaves Us Craving More: Let's Share Our Marriage Proposals! by Jessica Acree
It’s the moment every woman dreams of … to be completely surprised by a thoughtful, well-executed proposal; a true, fairytale story worth retelling over and over to anyone who will listen.
Director Glenn Weiss did just that at the 70th Emmy Awards, turning his acceptance speech into a powerful profession of gratitude and love for his girlfriend, Jan Svendsen. There wasn’t a dry eye in the crowd (or at home) as he put his late mother’s ring on her finger.
My husband proposed to me in a driveway, barefoot, while our friends waited with a champagne toast inside to celebrate my obviously predicted “yes!” We had rented a house to celebrate my 30th birthday. He planned to make a big toast and drop the question in front of everyone, but sensing my “center-of-attention” anxiety over what I knew was coming, he made a spontaneous shift and dropped down on one knee after an afternoon at the beach. Just the two of us. Beaming.
It was still incredible. A milestone moment in our own epic love story. No matter how it happens, big or small, proposals are worth retelling – the next chapter in each beautiful journey.
Let’s keep the good vibes going. Share your proposal story below!
