Paris is the uncontested city of romance, and where better to have an engagement shoot, and indeed a proposal. This little gem comes courtesy of Melvin Gilbert Photography. He’s shares Letizia and Tim’s story.
“It was a chilly Parisian day but the sun was shining and the Eiffel Tower still twinkled in the morning sunrise. As we strolled through Paris and shot some pictures they shared their proposal story. I think I was the first person to hear their proposal story in person!!! It was a very sweet and thoughtful proposal. Letizia’s birthday had been a few weeks before their Parisian trip and as one of her gifts Tim had given her a padlock with their names engraved.”
They had agreed to lock the padlock on Letizia’s favorite Parisian bridge, the Pont Des Arts (as seen in last episode of Sex and the City), on the night of their Seine dinner cruise. That evening Tim and Letizia strolled on the bridge and Tim asked her to pick the spot. Once the spot was chose, Tim bent down on his knee and attached the lock as Letizia happily and unknowingly snapped away pictures. As the lock clicked shut, Tim turned to Letizia and said, “Since I’m down here…” and proceeded to pull out a beautiful diamond engagement ring from his jacket pocket. And she said ‘YES.”
Isn’t that a fab proposal story?
