5 Celebrities Who Popped the Question in the Rockies

We’re calling this celebrity series: Romance in the Rockies. Because, when it comes to declaring their love, celebs often seek out extraordinary locations that add an air of enchantment and grandeur to their proposals. It’s no secret that the Rocky Mountains have captured the hearts of many. With their snow-capped peaks, crystal clear lakes, lush alpine forests, and dramatic red rock formations, the Rockies provide the perfect backdrop to pop the question. In this blog, we’ll take a look at 5 celebrities who left us swooning over their love stories.


Olivia Culpo + Christian McCaffrey – Canyon Point, Utah

Love is in the air, or rather, love is in the desert! Former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo and San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey announced their engagement on April 17th, 2023 in a stunning beautiful setting – Amangiri in Southern Utah. The secluded resort is set on 600 acres in Canyon Point surrounded by the untouched landscape of canyons, mesas, ridges, and gorges. This peaceful retreat is just a stone’s throw away from the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, and Lake Powell.

Justin Alexander + Kelsey Turchi – Jackson Hole, Wyoming

CEO and Creative Director of contemporary bridal fashion Justin Alexander, Justin Warshaw proposed to his girlfriend Kelsey Turchi during a getaway trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming in March 2021. While the couple had a jam-packed itinerary of hitting the slopes, aprés-ski drinks, gourmet meals, and some well-deserved pampering, the designer knew he wanted the proposal to be epic with the Teton Range towering in the background.

Justin Timberlake + Jessica Biel – Montana

We can’t help but feel a little envious of JT and Jessica’s relationship. The power-couple are insanely talented, hilariously entertaining, and active philanthropists. While they have been married for nine years and share two adorable kids together, back in December 2011, Justin proposed to Jessica on a piece of property in Montana that they owned at the time. The actress reminisced about the engagement on The Late Late Show – “We had snowboarded all day. It was in the middle of the winter. Waist-high snow. We were in head-to-toe snowboarding outfits; hats, gloves, everything. All of a sudden he gets down onto his knees and just sinks into the snow. And then he looks up at me and holds this ring and it was the most lovely, surprising, hilarious..”
