Proposals in the the Smoky Mountains are pretty popular with the amazing views and the variey of ways one can pop the question. There are plenty of different places to choose from that hold sentimental value to each couple. After writing this post on suggested proposal spots I was only inspired when reading an article in the Mountain Press about three couples who got engaged in the area on New Year’s Eve!
One couple were watching the fireworks show in front of Ripley’s Aquarium. The young man saw the replica of the Shults Grove Church on the plaza and decided to use that moment and the front of the church to propose. After the proposal they decided to ask at the guest services window if the two could use the church for their wedding ceremony. Another couple were celebrating the new year inside Ripley’s Aquarium where there was a fake prize drawing staged. When the young lady opened the gift there was a framed letter inside asking her to marry him, as she turned, he was on his knee with a ring. The last couple became engaged on the dance floor when he requested the Kevin McGuire band play their song.
Such sweet stories of proposals in the Smoky Mountains!
