Is there any better city than Paris to propose? Well, we’d like to believe that this city of love is definitely one of the top ranked destinations for everything romance-related. And Reinaldo, our client, agrees too.
Despite being famous as proposal destination, Katherine though, had no suspicion when she and Reinaldo went on their annual holiday trip. This lovely couple has always loved to travel, most often with their families too. How awesome is that right?
For this special Paris trip on Eid holiday, it was Reinaldo’s turn to join Katherine's family. Katherine had expected a fun family trip with them, but again, everyone involved was such a great secret-keeper that she didn’t look forward for something life-changing at all!
When we asked Reinaldo about why he particularly chose this time to pop the big question, he said that "Paris and romance go together flawlessly. Like champagne and oysters." For him, Paris has always been the destination for ultimate love profession, for passion and everything in between. He adores the beautiful moments, twinkling under the showers of night lights, the dreamy atmosphere, and breathtaking views of the poetic Eiffel tower.
Reinaldo had made it clear, the Eid holiday was going to be his chance to say “ I love you” to Katherine in front of her family. The fact that Katherine’s favorite childhood movie that quoted “Paris holds the the key to her heart”, only further confirmed his intention with the secret proposal.
Well, for Katherine, Paris or not, Reinaldo is the one true deal. “He makes me the happiest version of myself. He never fails to bring out the best in me," she told us. Needless to say, it all boiled down to the execution itself, Reinaldo got on one knee, handed out the beautiful ring, and popped out the one million dollar question. With shock and happiness still on her face, she said YES!
In our fair share of secret proposals all around the world, Katherine and Reinaldo’ was not just sweet but perfect too. Going on a dreamy holiday in the company of your loved ones, you can’t help but feel at ease, confident and joyful at the same time.
Still, proposing can still be a very big deal with nerve-wrecking emotions, which is why we encourage them to take all the time in the world, and leave the rest to us. “Working with SweetEscape has been wonderful. Not only are they so well connected all around the world, everything is so effectively and efficiently done too. No hassle, no rush!”, they both said.
We’re glad to say that it’s all part of being a professional holiday photography for SweetEscape. Sometimes it’s not just about having mad photography skills or the best camera gears. It’s always about honoring the moment, capturing the feelings and ultimately, making it lasts forever.
Congratulations again Katherine and Reinaldo! Thanks for sharing your story with SweetEscape.
Professional basketball player Hamady Ndiaye proposed to her girlfriend Kameel on the beautiful El Nido, and SweetEscape were lucky enough to be a part of their beautiful love moment! Read through to see how their love story unfolds!
I met Kameel on July 31st 2010 and I never let go of her since that day.
We been together 9 years and I basically asked her out in the first week or two after the first time we saw each other.
I told my Best friend and Brother within the Hour after meeting her "I think I found HER" (referring to the woman of my dreams), and we still talk about it to this day.
I have been planning it since 2016 all the pieces came together this year. Sweet Escape was the last piece of the puzzle that I needed to actually confirm that I was going to do it because what’s an engagement to a Fashion Designer/Blogger without pictures and videos to capture the perfect moment.
Well I was sent on a vacation by senator Manny Pacquiao after my PBA season to Pangulasian island and I got to visit Miniloc at the time and all the small islands around El Nido which was when I decided that the next time I would come to the Philippines with my now fiancé would be the time make it happen in one of the most beautiful places I have been so far. That’s when the idea started cooking in my mind and took the time to perfect exactly what I wanted to happen.
That was a process as well because I wanted it to describe how much she means to me but also reflect her character on it. I wanted to make sure I covered every aspect of her dreams to make it a moment last a lifetime.
SweetEscape was referred to me by a good friend from Mighty Sports while we were competing to win the Jones Cup Gab Banal. I explained my plans and that the only part I couldn’t figure out was how to get a photographer on the island for the day. He Shared the link and upon discussing my intentions with them, they helped not just with pictures, but helped me prepare the place and directed the photo shoot so well that my fiancé couldn’t imagine what I was setting up for her. Once I gave them the go sign, they were prepared and set to capture every angle of the proposal with both their equipments and mine. It’s been the greatest moment for me and my fiancé and looking forward to our new chapter in life. Couldn’t be more thankful for the Philipines, Mighty Sports and SweetEscape for helping me bring this amazing dream to life for us!
We're always happy and excited to be a part of everyone's love journey! For every lovely moment, SweetEscape is ready to capture every detail for you! Book now and let's #MakeLifeMemorable!
