An Instagram Engagement: The Return

Summer is over and so ends our Summer Cocktail series. Yes, we’re sad, too! But get ready for cozy sweaters, Pumpkin Spice everything, and of course, romantic proposals! We’re bringing back our favorite feature, our favorite instagram proposal stories! We can’t wait so let’s get right into it.

Handwritten accents make things personal and intimate. Wonderful photo, gizemtokerphotolab!

The ring circling the spot gladta got engaged at is such a sweet idea!

Getting engaged in a hot air balloon is pretty fantastic, lovely share, genello_4774.

Finally, we found our first Snapchat to Instagram crossover. Stephaniesadventures shared a shot of her cousin’s snap announcing her engagement, times really are changing, we suppose!

Congratulations to all the happy couples! Remember, if you want to share your special moment with us (especially our Fina couples!) make sure you tag us on Instagram or use the #MichaelCFina. We can’t wait to hear your stories! nowtime.xyz

Instagram Proposals: June 2015

Nothing makes us happier than seeing a happy couple! That’s why we’re so thrilled when couples share their engagements on Instagram. It’s the perfect place to show the world your love, and the ring!

(PS: If you think your amazing proposal and story belongs in the next edition of this blog, be sure to tag your photo with #MichaelCFina and tag us in the photo @MichaelCFina!)

1. lisaaa___xox‘s fiancé went the romantic candlelit route, and really spelled it out for her!

2. We’re in love with this hand lettered addition by natasja_cee! A great big story in a tiny Instagram frame.

3. A little bias went into this pick, Space Mountain is my favorite mountain! A little Disney magic is a fun way to show off the ring, good job kdose88.

5. eric_bienvenidos knows that Paris is always a good bet. Can’t go wrong with the Eiffel Tower!

6. Looking out over the water is a beautiful setting for an engagement. We’re sure odeyods agrees!

7. Some guys go above and beyond, emphasis on above! A romantic ride in the clouds can really set the scene for a perfect engagement, as annaphamxo can attest to.

8. And finally, engagements aren’t always about grand gestures and big surprises, sometimes simply genuine is the route to choose. Instagram user jen_jenmarie_busterthehusky‘s fiancé turned a camping trip and hike into the most memorable moment! Try to tell us the top of a mountain isn’t romantic, we dare you!

Proposing? Location, Location, Location!

This month we sensed a theme in our search for our favorite proposal announcements on Instagram. Location, location, location. Proposing is like art to us, and these proposals take an already romantic moment and make it over-the-top with scenery meant to amaze!

Ixt_ shared her proposal at the top of the Hollywood Hills. An adorable moment with the whole family there to share it and a gorgeous view on the horizon!

Galicianation shared this beautiful moment between her sister and (new!) brother-in-law at the foot of a mountain in Yosemite! What an incredible view for a momentous occasion.

Paris. Where else? You knew it was coming, Paris is a automatic go-to when you’re thinking romance! The Eiffel Tower sparkling in lights at night was the way to victoriapanferova‘s heart.


Aimbabe08 took to the skies and then got swept off her feet! High above the Hoover Dam during a flight lesson is quite a way to surprise a girl!

We might be a little biased, but it doesn’t get any better than New York City, right? Taliagrace12‘s engagement at The Rink at Rockefeller Center was just magical!
