Last year I chose Waterton Park- the Prince of Wales hotel specifically, to propose to my G/f. The waiter took great pics for the moment. Waterton has always been such a romantic getaway for us. We love it. Always will:)

My husband and I have been going to Waterton for more than 14 years now. We got engaged and married there. We return every year on our engagement and wedding anniversaries. We have also instilled our love of Waterton into our 3 sons and 1 daughter in law. Waterton is Gods Country to us.
