It's all about planning, timing, ground support and...a few white lies ;) How did Kevin pull off the ultimate #ProposalGoals to his unsuspecting bride, Pauline, with an incredibly romantic sunset setup in Club Med Finolhu Villas, Maldives, with a breathtaking view overlooking the crystal clear blue water?

All will be revealed below!

“This trip was supposed to be a birthday trip for Kevin, but little did I know he actually planned the proposal about 6 months before we flew there. He contacted the Club Med staff and arranged everything prior to our arrival.

When we arrived, the staff told us that we were entitled a free massage (for one) and an hour photo shoot for his birthday. I totally did not suspect a single thing because I had expected some kind of perks since we were spending Kevin’s birthday during our stay at Club Med.

Apparently, he made use of the time while I was at the massage to arrange the proposal set-up and decor with the staff. During the photo shoot, the photographer brought me to the venue (while Kevin was away due to a “tummy ache”) and I was totally surprised when I saw the entire set up.

Kevin had made a video and I watched it on his iPad. He got all our loved ones to record their blessings and messages and I was literally bawling my eyes out! Everything was so beautiful, especially the view - an open ocean against the backdrop of the sunset. It was the perfect proposal!” ~ Pauline

Congratulations on your engagement, Kevin and Pauline, and thank you for sharing your proposal story with us!
