A Romantic Winter Proposal in the Heart of Stowe, Vermont

Chilled whispers in the air, frost-kissed landscapes, and the romance of cozying up with your partner… these are just a few reasons why we love winter in Vermont! Alongside holidays and ample outdoor activities, it is also a great time for a proposal – like this one! Photos by Kintz captured this cozy, surprise proposal amidst the breathtaking backdrop of the Trapp Family Lodge in the dreamy landscape of Stowe, Vermont and we’re swooning over the details!

Making Memories at Trapp Family Lodge

Despite living in Virginia, Carlos and Christine travel to Vermont frequently and have a lot of memories here. When planning their most recent winter trip to Stowe, Carlos knew it wouldn’t be complete without a surprise proposal.

After visiting the Trapp Family Lodge for lunch with the family, the groom-to-be asked his bride-to-be to meet him for a walk in the freshly fallen snow. When Carlos popped the question, Christine’s resounding “YES” echoed off of the nearby mountains and their families (including their dog Stormy!) came out with champagne to celebrate.

Involving their families in the proposal created an atmosphere of love and togetherness that will be cherished by Carlos and Christine for years to come. It added a personal touch to the occasion and made it feel even more special and meaningful! Check out all of the beautiful images from this proposal below.

And one crucial aspect of wedding planning that shouldn’t be overlooked is the selection of your floral arrangements.
