you know it’s the real deal when he flies across the PLANET to surprise propose. catherine is one lucky lady to have jensen. after weeks of planning, choosing the perfect ring, and packing for his long flight and short trip, he surprised catherine at the tuileries gardens in paris, france to ask her to be his WIFE.
i think i’ve told this story about a thousand times so i think it’s time to finally write it down so everyone gets the story! AND YES, i did know all about it. i spent 9 looong days with my best friend in a very romantic city just her and i knowing all about what was waiting for her in these gardens!
jensen knows catherine. he knew the only way to scoop her up as a wife would be to really go all out. this was truly THE best way to pop the question! this proposal truly explains this couple. jensen will do just about anything to make her dreams come true and catherine truly deserves it all.
OK so, here’s the real story: catherine and i saved the lourve museum for our last day, april 9th. it was a tuesday and we wanted to see it without the lines in front of it (we hit a few other museums instead!) but had to see the pyramid of course! this worked out flawlessly because jensen knew he wanted to get down on his knee with this backdrop. not too cheesy, but still obviously somewhere special. so catherine and i headed out around 5pm.
jensens flight was delayed, and he was in the air for 9 hours so i anxiously watched his flight tracker as we went through our day. he landed and went straight to his hotel to get fancied up! catherine and i headed toward the lourve just as he did and we watched each others locations (while i slyly hid my phone from catherine the whole day) to make sure we magically ran into each other in the gardens.
jensen casualy walked up to us, catherine looked like she saw a ghost and was so clearly confused. i probably started crying instantly and gave the look of “uhh i don’t know! heck WHY is he here?!?” and he took her hand. yes, i was definitely crying by now.
ANNDDDD after a few words they shared, she made sure to tell him not to be nervous (because duh, of course she was gonna say yes.) he dropped down and asked her (with her full name too *TEARS*) to be his WIFEY. and yes, she said YES and I WAS BAWLING.
AND also i took a terrible video with my phone i attempted to hold while photographing it and crying. so that video is for their eyes only…
andddd that’s it. we all went to dinner, saw the eiffel tower once more, and they had one night together in paris. THANKFUL to have been a part of this incredible moment. and so so excited to celebrate these two!!
anddd when she forgot a ring was involved… and finally caught an eye of it!
