3) A place that you or your sweetie have always enjoyed in Grand Rapids.
For Amanda, the Sixth Street Bridge (aka the Green Bridge) "was always one of our favorite spots to walk when I lived there." The bridge made the Up-inspired proposal from her fiancé all the more magical.

For this couple that place was Furniture City Creamery. They even decided to go back during their wedding.

5) The antique Spillman carousel at the Grand Rapids Public Museum.
It was just the place for Aaron's proposal to Laura. Says Aaron, “We had an absolute blast, despite getting dizzy proposing while the carousel was running. “

6) Just about anywhere.
Grand Rapids is one of those places where you can make almost any space special and romantic. You can even empty a coffeehouse to propose to your someone while a three-piece ensemble plays in the background. Jessica and her fiancé have the photos to prove it.
