“As a newly engaged couple, we are on cloud nine! We’re showing off our sparkly rings, trying to get used to saying ‘fiancée’ instead of girlfriend, and still crying every time we watch the proposal video. The moment was absolutely perfect and came together as if the stars aligned.” mentioned Ashley and Malori — the newly engaged, happy couple who are also the faces behind a popular Instagram account, @MalleyinLove.
Here’s how it all went down!
The Arizona LGBTQ+ influencers had visited W Scottsdale in Arizona earlier in the year for a partnership showcasing safe and LGBTQ+ friendly travel destinations. After loving the hotel, Ashley reached out to them to help plan an unforgettable proposal for Malori…and needless to say it was better than either of them could have ever imagined.
“I chose to pop the question on our second anniversary and I still can’t believe that two years ago, we had our first date,” mentioned Ashley. “I knew I wanted to make the proposal special and personal to us. I found a song, a location, a guitarist, and a videographer. Singing to her for the moment I got down on one knee felt so perfect.”
The hotel staff made it even better by reserving a room for the couple to enjoy their anniversary/engagement, of which they also decorated to commemorate the occasion.
“After popping the champagne and going to the W’s sushi restaurant, we were so surprised to come back to rose petals, balloons, and even more champagne! We felt so loved and celebrated!”
We’re suckers for this heartfelt moment and couldn’t be happier that this one was captured. Never forget, folks…love wins. Always!
