Surprise Engagement of Kyle & Michelle
“Every great love starts with a great story…”
The Story of Michelle & Kyle
As Nicholas Sparks once said, “Every great love starts with a great story…”, so let’s hear this one. It all happened back in 1997 when Kyle saw the beautiful smile on Michelle’s face while driving in their school bus. Can you imagine your love story beginning in a school bus?… Ahh, so romantic.
Fast forward to 2019, Kyle was searching for their wedding venue and he found the perfect one, by the beach with the most gorgeous view ever, the famous “Villa la Joya”. Immediately, the best idea popped up in his head, ‘why not surprise the love of my life and ask her to marry me at this place, right here’. And that is when he contacted us, Paradise Wedding and Events, to help him plan the perfect surprise engagement for Michelle and him. But as detailed as he is, (love that about him), Kyle decided to put a little twist on it and make Michelle not be suspicious at any moment.
Therefore, the plan was for Michelle and Kyle to travel to Texas, and from there to catch a flight to a surprise destination Cancun where he ‘rented’ Villa la Joya as an Airbnb for the vacation. However, that’s not all. To follow with the plan and make it more interesting, he told her they are invited to take part in a program called “Mi casa Es su casa”. They have to explore the villa while being filmed on camera for the program. That is how we succeeded in having the camera and photo crew on the side to film everything. Little did she know, this trip was about to change her life forever.
When they arrived in Cancun, they were transported to the place in a luxury van that Kyle rented. We were so happy to welcome them to the ‘program’ and gave them two boxes, packages that Kyle prepared before. In the bigger one, he added a comic book called “My reasons WHY..” which describes their romantic love story from the beginning, from the first smile. But the smaller box was hiding the biggest surprise ever, the engagement ring.
Here comes the moment you all be waiting for. While they were exploring the villa, they came across a heart-shaped candle display in the garden overlooking the beach and ocean. And that is where the magic happened. First, they’ve opened the box with the comic book inside and then the smaller one. Kyle opened the box (with the engagement ring), popped up the question, and Michelle said YES! What an emotional moment for both of them. Million kisses and happy tears.
Hmm…wait, that’s not all. Only one more surprise, we promise. Kyle had planned for all of their best friends to fly to Riviera Maya and hide in the villa while waiting for Kyle to make a sign so they can show up as a surprise, to witness this special moment together with them. After that, we celebrate with champagne and a delicious cake.
As the comic book said at the end… ‘A true love story never ends!’
Congratulations Michelle and Kyle! We are so happy that we got to share this moment with you. We wish you all the best!
Lots of hugs and kisses from Paradise Weddings & Events team.
