The Perfect Proposal?

So, what do you deem to be the perfect proposal? For me, I think it would have to be somewhere quiet where we are alone. I'd love for my significant other to come up with something creative like a poem etc to show that he put time and effort into it. For our 3 year anniversary on January 28th, my boyfriend made me a video and wrote me a song. The video started with "It's been 3 years and it's only the beginning..." with video of a sunrise from the cruise we went on last year. The video then went on to show a variety of different pictures of us since the day we met. He showed it me when we were at a quiet romantic restaurant and I weeped all over the table! To me, this would have been the perfect way to propose had we had intentions on marrying.

After viewing all the proposals of the entrants to Essences "Will you marry me?" contest, I decided I liked the way Gabriel proposed to Jasmine. While they weren't in a quiet place, I loved that he wrote that adorable poem to her and read it aloud. He really put time and thought into it which to me is important. Please be sure to check out the video below.

So, tell me what you think would be the perfect proposal?
