National Proposal Day

Romantic Beach Proposal With a Surprise Engagement Party

March 20th is National Proposal Day aka, one of our favorite days of the year, and we're doubling down on the content today with multiple proposal stories! Is it just me, but are proposal photos just THE BEST — there's nothing quite like those reaction shots.

Jason and Aviya had been together for 11 years (wow!) when Jason dropped to one knee during a romantic walk on the beach. “It was a complete surprise. Jason said his family was having a get together at their beach house and we were going to meet them down there. He said we should walk down the beach and come through their back door but while we stopped to look out at the ocean, he got down on his knee and I WAS SO SHOCKED!” Aviya exclaims. Smirnova Photography captured the entire session, as well as the fun surprise engagement party immediately after. “We go back to the house to get ready for the get together at his parent's house and then when we get there, my family is there too! They had everything decorated and it was such a special moment.”

As a lover of all things wedding and a fierce cheerleader for marriage equality, I decided to marry my two passions and create a resource where all couples can be equally represented. Armed with seven years in both print and online lifestyle journalism, I dove headfirst into this passion project in 2013 and Love Inc. was born. I’m inspired every day by the couples that grace our pages, from the can’t-live-without-you grasps to the gentle sweeping away of a happy tear, the love that they so clearly have for each other is intoxicating, and drives me to create the best product possible … while enjoying every second of it.
