Paper Planes Gazebo Proposal in San Mateo, CA

 

We love when a proposal evolves from a super romantic love story, just like Nick and Harleen’s!  The two went on their first date to a huge, city-wide pillow fight. At the end of the night, Harleen handed Nick a paper airplane (a reference to a short film they had watched together, and her way of showing her affection!) On the day of the proposal, Nick brought Harleen to a rose garden, only to find a beautiful gazebo covered in twinkle lights (referencing Harleen’s love of Christmas lights) and paper airplanes.  One single airplane was red, and contained a love letter inside.  Talk about romantic!  Congratulations to Nick and Harleen :)

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.

pink rose petals aisle

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.

archway with flowers and hanging cards

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!

Friday “Rocks”! featuring Clean Origin

Happy New Year! What better way to RING in the new year, than with some amazingly beautiful engagement rings! I found some stand out jewelry from Clean Origin! Not only can you find stunning pieces, but have the complete confidence in high quality craftsmanship and ethically-sourced diamonds! This collection is full of elegance and romance… LOVE!

“We believe in bringing our customers exceptional quality jewelry and stunning diamonds….but, we also believe in being on the right side of history. That’s why we’ve chosen to only use ethically-sourced and environmentally-friendly, lab-grown diamonds. Science has given us the tools to eliminate the negative effects of mining, it’s time we take advantage of these resources to start helping our earth. Being able to offer cultured diamonds provides our customers with a new, beautiful choice to bring your commitment of love to life.”

Petite Delicate Halo Ring

This dazzling ring features a row of scalloped lab-created diamonds leading to a delicately recessed halo around the center stone. As one of their most sought-after designs, this ring is available in white, yellow or rose gold. Looking for a jaw-dropping center stone? The halo style often accentuates your center stone, creating the illusion of a larger middle diamond. With lab-grown diamonds being anywhere from 20-30% less expensive, you can make that center stone 20-30% larger for the same price! Now that will be a head turner for sure!

 

Tapered Solitaire Ring

A classic solitaire with soft lines, this ring’s high polish band gently tapers toward the center stone, creating a graceful feminine curve. Pictured in rose gold, this ring comes with three different band color options — rose, yellow or white gold. The solitaire design exudes simplicity and elegance. Dress this ring up with a gorgeous wedding band or layer on a stackable ring…the beauty of the solitaire is its ability to assimilate to other added jewelry.

 

Fantasy Ring

Tapered shimmering lab-created diamonds rise up the shoulders of this timelessly romantic and elegant ring. As part of the Classic Collection, the Fantasy ring is the go-to for lovers of all things bling. With six accent diamonds on each side, this ring could be seen sparkling from across the room. Put a modern twist on this ring by changing up the band color to yellow (pictured) or rose gold. Or, stick with the classic look of stunning diamonds and white gold.

Petite Floating Gem Ring

This delicate ring features a brilliant row of handset lab-created diamonds that sparkle and extends halfway around the finger. Take one look at this gorgeous ring and you’ll understand why it’s a bestseller! Make sure your engagement ring and wedding band match by going with the Petite Floating Gem Bridal Set. Even our sets are available in white, yellow and rose gold!
