Surprise Marriage Proposal at Douro Valley
Been chatting with Kevin for a few days, making sure this surprise marriage proposal was perfect planning! I can say he was nervous, who wouldn’t right? We managed to make all the arrangements without Monica getting suspicious. (Phew!)
They flew from New York to Porto (ohhh NYC, how much I miss you.) and from there they went for a full day adventure on Douro Valley. The Tour Guide was provided by the amazing João Koehler from SommTours.
Douro Valley, a World Heritage–listed region famous for its port wine production. People all over the globe come here to wine taste amid the vineyard-clad hills of the valley.
These pictures were all taken in the scenic village of Pinhão. They went for a private boat ride and that’s how it all began. The boat eventually stopped for a few seconds and surprise, surprise: a small box was taken out of Kevin’s pocket and.. and you can see for yourself, what a beautiful engagement ring!
After the boat trip, we went uphill, heading to Sandeman Quinta do Seixo. The sightseing became even better and by now the wine was ready to be tasted in a more relaxed way.
