The Proposal Planner: Sunil and Shahira

Posted by Sarah PeaseAug 04, 2014

What could be more exciting, mysterious and romantic than a James Bond movie? Sunil and Shahira’s James Bond inspired marriage proposal.  Shahira was treated to a relaxing spa day as a decoy for her ultimate surprise later that night.  When she arrived back to her hotel room, Sunil had a beautiful dress draped on the bed with a top secret mission letter next to it.  Her mission; to put on the dress, get her hair and makeup done and meet her driver downstairs.  Her driver took her to a secret location where she was handed a second top secret mission letter.  She headed inside as instructed and ordered a martini, shaken not stirred.  After ordering her drink, all of the other people in the room froze and a curtain in the middle of the room opened.  Sunil was standing at the end of the red carpet on the other side of the curtain.  As Shahira walked to him, the people started to sing a special song for them. At the end of the song, Sunil proposed and Shahira said YES!  After this super secret proposal, the two headed to a romantic dinner to celebrate their new engagement.  Congratulations Sunil and Shahira!

The Proposal Planner: Sandra and Antonio

Posted by Sarah PeaseMay 12, 2014

Sandra had no idea what was coming when Antonio surprised her with a tech savvy marriage proposal in New York City.  Sandra’s love for technology was the inspiration for the multimedia presentation Antonio used to pop the question.  In a hotel room overlooking Central Park three large TV monitors were wired to display a slideshow of the couples relationship.  When Sandra walked in the room she was overwhelmed by the display, Antonio then handed her a large control to start the multimedia slideshow.  The final slide displayed the message “Will You Marry Me”.  There in the intimate hotel room Antonio presented his ring and Sandra said yes!  The couple celebrated their engagement with a romantic photo shoot in central park.  Congratulations Sandra and Antonio.

The Proposal Planner: Jaison and Ann

Posted by Sarah PeaseMay 05, 2014

We were so thrilled to help Jaison plan the perfect marriage proposal for this girlfriend Ann.  Jaison wanted his proposal to be a complete surprise.  Being in a long distance relationship, Ann didn’t even know Jaison was going to be in town.  Little did she know Jaison wasn’t the only surprise of the night.  When she arrived for dinner with friends the hostess lead Ann to a private room.  She was completely blown away to see not only her friends and family but Jaison standing in the middle of the room!  As soon as she entered the room a pianist started playing and Jaison began singing “I Can’t Help Falling In Love” by Elvis.  After his serenade Jaison dropped to one knee and proposed to Ann, she said yes!  The newly engaged couple celebrated the night with a party for friends and family.  Congratulations Jaison and Ann!

The Proposal Planner: George and Christine

Posted by Sarah PeaseApr 28, 2014

George and his girlfriend Christine’s love of wine was the inspiration for their Italian style marriage proposal.  The proposal started to take shape when George gave Christine a private wine tasting for Christmas.  Unknown to Christine, this wine tasting would be completely orchestrated by our proposal team.  The day of the proposal the couple arrived for their private wine tasting.  George chose a Bordeaux theme for the tasting because of an upcoming trip the couple has planned to Bordeaux, Italy.  As the tasting came to an end the Sommelier asked George and Christine to take an audio quiz on the wines they learned about.  Instead of a quiz an original song that George wrote with a professional songwriter began to play.  When the song came to an end George dropped to one knee and proposed to Christine.  The couple celebrated their engagement with a private cooking lesson where they learned how to make an authentic Italian dessert.  Congratulations George and Christine!

Clayton proposed to Amy with a starry night she will never forget.  Thinking they were just going out for a nice dinner, Clayton and Amy arrived at the Asisate where they were ushered to a private room overlooking Columbus Circle.  Displayed in the middle of the room was a tree instillation covered with Swarovski crystal stars and garland.  On each star was a message and significant date from the couple’s relationship.  After reading each of the messages to Amy, Clayton proposed and she said yes!  The couple celebrated their engagement with a romantic dinner for two in the private room.  When they returned back to their hotel room Amy found the book “The Stars” placed on the bed.  Inside was a personal inscription from Clayton.  Congratulations Amy and Clayton!

The Proposal Planner: Bo and Kelcie

Posted by Sarah PeaseMar 17, 2014

Kelcie’s love of fashion was the centerpiece for her one of a kind marriage proposal in New York City. This amazing day all started with a shopping tour of New York City’s famous SoHo neighborhood.  The couple then took a private car across the river to the Brooklyn Museum where they enjoyed a private tour of the Gaultier fashion exhibit.  Little did Kelcie know that’s as they were making their way through the exhibit, our proposal team was transforming the foyer into a completely custom proposal spot.  As they came to the end of the exhibit a table was now displayed with 8 pairs of shoes, one pair for each year of their relationship. Bo led Kelcie down the line of shoes, revealing the highlights of their relationship on the inside of each shoebox. A final pair of shoes displayed the message “Marry Me” on the bottom.  Bo proposed and Kelcie said yes! We are thrilled to have our couples wonderful proposal featured on How He Asked! Check out the post here. Congratulations Bo and Kelcie!
