Marquee Letters

Some of the most romantic proposals I have seen have been with Marquee letters! Marquee letters are perfect for someone wanting to do a huge and epic proposal. You can purchase these letters on Amazon, Walmart, Etsy, and so many other online stores!

Tea Lights, Candles, Lanterns

If you are someone wanting to do a sweet and SUPER romantic set up then this is for you. You can get tea lights, candles, or lanterns and set them up practically anywhere. You can use the lights to create a path, make a heart, spell something out, or simply place them around the area you are about to propose!


Okay, but what person doesn’t love a romantic picnic and getting proposed to during it?! You can set up a picnic with your partner’s favorite food, wine, or even champagne! This makes a sweet date night and a super sweet proposal that your partner will be sure to love. Down below are links to a few of my favorite picnic planners!

Propose at a Location That Has Meaning To Both Of You

Most couples have that one location that means the most to them. This could be a city, a park, or a beach. Take your partner to that location and proposal! This could even be the place of your first date or the first time you met.

Marry Me Neon Sign

Neon signs are ALWAYS a great idea. This is something that makes for a stunning photo op if you have hired a photographer to capture the moment! You can set up a marry me sign anywhere and throw a few rose petals on the floor for a romantic proposal!

“Kim is the absolute best and I will recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer. We had a destination wedding in Charleston, SC and Kim was so amazing at planning everything and checking in during the planning process many times. She scheduled the day way beforehand which helped the day go so smoothly. She truly thought of everything!! Kim followed us around in South Carolina and had the best ideas. All my husband and I had to do was be in love and Kim took care of the rest. I love looking back at our wedding and engagement photos because they are a perfect snapshot of the love we share and our amazing day. We had a huge sneak peek and loved every single picture. I loved working with Kim and would choose her over and over again!!”
