Marriage Proposal: Maho Beach, Sint Maarten VIDEO by Alexandre JULIEN

To see the Vidéo :  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axLR320ShsQ Funny Story !!

My girlfriend (now my fiancée) is absolutely fascinated with airplanes and the highlight of our vacation was visiting Maho Beach on Sint Maarten. I decided it would be the perfect place to propose. So I pretended to be taking a video of her watching the first jumbo jetliner landing at Princess Juliana Airport (SXM) The airport runway is a mere 100ft from the beach! I had a professional photographer Alexandre JULIEN from Saint Martin to capture the whole thing and multiple friends taking pictures. She was completely caught off guard and it was all caught on film.

There were a couple of shock moments for her… obviously the planes and me down on one knee, but the funniest is when the cameraman asks « Now do you know why I’m here? ». She had made numerous comments about him earlier in the day since he kinda stood out from the typical guys in bathing suits. « What is this guy doing out here? » and « Must be a hard job taking pics on the beach all day. » She didn’t realize it was all for her until he said something. Awesome.
