The sweet moment took place on a rooftop, which was decorated with white flower petals. Both were appropriately dressed for the occasion and Gottschalk hired a photographer to document the surprising life moment.

The couple  both starred on Bachelor In Paradise’s fourth season. “I knew I was gonna keep Adam around the first weekend we spent together outside of paradise,” Gates wrote in December 2017.

The couple’s engagement was naturally accompanied by a flood of congratulatory messages from Bacehlor Nation members like Chris Harrison, longtime host of the franchise. “Love you both!” he wrote under Gates’s caption. “Congratulations my friends.”

Others to chime in included JoJo Fletcher, Wells Adams and new dad, former Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr.
