About Megan Ellis

My love for all things wedding and romance led me to The Yes Girls in 2015, where I was given the opportunity to share my current "swoons" weekly via The Yes Girls' blog. I'm currently going to school for design, in hopes of combining my passions and helping couples convey their love stories in the perfect way!

Giant Balloon Heart Proposal in Napa

When Jerry came to us to help with his proposal to girlfriend Natashya, there seemed to be an underlying theme in their relationship… that they are COMPLETE OPPOSITES! Natashya prefers sweet foods, Jerry prefers salty. She loves Asian food, he likes burgers. She loves Korean dramas, he prefers Western TV series. He loves sports… well, you get the idea! Even though they don’t have much in common in the interests department, they are still the perfect fit.  It’s true what they say… opposites really do attract!  To play off this theme, we created a giant balloon heart with hanging magnets to display the many differences they have.  In the center of the balloon heart, there was a banner reading “Opposites attract” in Korean (to represent her love for Korean TV Dramas).  They finished off the day with lunch and champagne overlooking the beautiful Sonoma scenery. Congratulations to the happy couple :)

Top 8 Marriage Proposals in Orange County

Orange County is an amazing place to propose.  From the gorgeous beach views, to the hidden gems tucked away throughout the area, The Yes Girls have seen it all. If you’re thinking about proposing in OC, take a look at how these sweet couples got engaged! It’s sure to spark some inspiration :)

beach proposal in orange county

Audrius’ friend reached out to us to help plan his proposal, and he already had a good idea of what he wanted… a helicopter ride over the beautiful beaches of California, with “Marry Me” written in the sand so that he could propose in the helicopter. See more here.

Josh & Michelle have been together for EIGHT YEARS! So he had a lot of pressure going into his proposal moment. It had to be bright, colorful, over the top, and absolutely breathtaking! We also made it personalized and thoughtful by displaying pictures from their relationship on life-size cut out numbers along the aisle, a macaron tower (her favorite dessert), and a cute pink letter board with their “relationship quote” on it :) see more here.

Roberto and Michelle met playing poker! Seriously, so cute and unique! So for their marriage proposal, we created a romantic hanging playing cards scene in San Clemente that overlook the Pacific Ocean! Some of the cards had calligraphy words of affirmation on them to really add that extra special touch and to play into Michelle’s love language of ‘words of affirmation’. See more here.

oc marriage proposal with fireworks

Brooks booked his custom proposal ideas package back in 2016. But then with the holidays and the business that naturally comes with that season, he decided to put everything on hold for a bit. Then, after the New Year we circled back around and started moving on the couple’s big day! Brooks knew he wanted fireworks – not sparklers or ground work, but true, over the top Fourth of July style fireworks! See more here.

Christian’s girl, Dianne, has always begged Christian to slow-dance with her. He is always denying her and saying that he “can’t” dance. But for his proposal Dianne’s dreams came true! Dianne thought she was going to the park with some friends to check out an engagement shoot location (for her just engaged friend), but in fact her girlfriends escorted her right to Christian who was nestled under a gigantic oak tree filled with a hundred hanging mason jars! Read more here.

“I even hinted to Ryan about what type of proposal was ideal in my opinion and completely neglected to consider what he wanted. I had a very good inclination that Ryan would work with The Yes Girls Events since his sister, Heather, is the CEO and I knew that between Ryan and the girls, they would come up with something completely perfect for Ryan and me. Of course I don’t know about all the behind the scenes planning that went on or even how long it took, but when I got to the proposal location, my breath was taken away.My heart was beating faster than I thought it could handle and my hands were trembling with excitement.” Read more here.

Laguna Beach Floral Tee Pee Proposal

When Chris reached out to us to help him plan his proposal, we were thrilled! Bri, the proclaimed “Pink Princess” and decor extraordinaire, has the best taste, and we knew our focus had to go making each and every detail perfect! Meanwhile, Chris whisked Bri away for a weekend trip to Laguna. Their hotel “just so happened” to not be ready for check-in, so they made a quick stop at the beach for a picnic. When they arrived, there wasn’t just a picnic setting waiting for them, but an entire table scape complete with calligraphy name napkins, Italian coins (for their wedding in Italy), and a pink centerpiece. Read more here.

From the boho-style hammock to the personalized driftwood Google Map “relationship-milemarkers” this proposal was perfection. PLUS it’s not very often that the couple’s outfits perfectly coordinate with the decor :) See more here.

2x Family YouTube Star’s Rooftop Proposal in New York City

Last year, we had the pleasure of working with Alfredo Villa from 2x Family to plan his proposal to his sweet girlfriend, Jasmine.  We wanted to incorporate their YouTube videos, so we came up with the idea of a flower wall with 4 iPads playing videos that highlighted their best memories together.  The 5th iPad played a video Alfredo created with their family and friends, each saying how much they love and adore Jasmine (and how happy they are that she is about to marry Alfredo!) Check out the final video from the proposal below!

Proposal Trends for 2019

Happy first week of 2019!  After team meetings and goal planning, our team is starting the year off with a bang! We are so excited to see what 2019 brings, and we actually wanted to do a bit of forecasting for what proposals will look like in 2019.  Marriage proposals have come a long way since 2008 when The Yes Girls planned their first event, and each year, they only get bigger and better!  Here are some trends we’re expecting to see this year:

  1. Proposing with more than one ring. Questioning which ring she’d love BEST? Why not let her decide?  By giving her several rings to choose from, she can try on each one and pick her absolute favorite! Flower cart proposal in San Francisco
  2. High budget proposals. As the years go on, we are seeing more and more clients with wedding-sized budgets for their proposals.  We’re expecting 2019 to be the biggest year yet, with firework displays, flower walls (see number 3) and huge installations. BRING. THEM. ON! Rooftop Marriage Proposal in New York City
  3. Statement backdrops.   If  you’re looking for that “WOW!” factor, flower walls and lighting installations will do just that! There’s a reason they are so often requested by our clients… because they are THAT stunning! Winter proposal in deer valley utah
  4. Outdoor venues with a view. Wanting to go the opposite direction of statement decor? The answer? Utilizing the natural views to become part of the decor. It’s the easiest trick in the book to make the scene out-of-this-world gorgeous!
  5. Unique / secretive places to hide the ring. So long, bulky square boxes poking through your pocket.  No one has time to try and conceal a large ring box (and no one wants to chance ruining the surprise!) The Yes Girls have come up with the perfect solution- The Box Sock.  Designed to conceal your ring box underneath your pants leg (where of course, she would never think to look!) The Box Sock looks like any other pair of trendy dress socks. Find your perfect pair here!

Sunflowers and Champagne Beach Proposal in Coronado, CA

Proposal in San Diego

Rob and Suzy’s mutual friend came to us with one wish… to make Suzy’s proposal one she will never forget!  She loved the idea of a beach proposal, and together we came up with the idea for beach dinner, customized with gorgeous photos, R & S initials, and painted signs created by friends.  If you can’t tell by the photos, it was a hit ;)  Congratulations Rob and Suzy!
