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!

The Proposal Planner: Chris and Petra

Posted by Sarah PeaseMar 10, 2014

Chris put his total heart and soul into this amazing proposal. He wanted to make it clear to Petra how much he adored her and how lucky he was to be with her. Thus Lucky in Love was born and became the title to this one of kind engagement. From the very beginning, a plan was set up to completely catch Petra off guard. She thought that she and Chris would be meeting with some friends from overseas for a birthday, but instead she was lead into an empty Penthouse suite with a spectacular view overlooking the city. It was flawlessly decorated and just for her. When they entered the room a huge wall mural displayed pictures of the couple. A guitarist sat in the corner and played Journey’s “When A Man Loves A Woman”, and the lyrics were also printed on the beautiful white runner that was laid on the floor. As the two of them walked the runner they found themselves standing under a floral arch where miniature horseshoes hung from, and all had a reason written up by Chris of why he knows he is lucky to have her. After reading every single one, Chris got down on one knee and pulled out the ring which he perfectly disguised in a Happy Birthday gift bag. The night was far from over at that point. Just as Petra was calling her friends and family to share the good news, they all appeared after waiting so patiently in the lobby, and everyone enjoyed a wonderful evening complete with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres! Congratulations Chris and Petra!

The Proposal Planner: Paul and Azalea

Posted by Sarah PeaseFeb 21, 2014

Paul made sure that Azalea was treated to an unforgettable proposal that truly represented her as an Artist, and her love and passion for painting. The evening all started when the couple happened to come across a sign for an Open House Community Art Class.  After agreeing to Paul’s suggestion that they should partake in it, Azalea and Paul joined the class that was staged all for her. About 15 minutes into the class, an acoustic guitar in the distance starting playing the beautiful melody to Trains “Marry Me”. One by one fellow students from the class started singing, until finally the whole class was! Azalea, humming along with the tune, still was completely unaware of what was going on or what was about to come. The group of singers then led Paul and Azalea into another room where the guitarist could be found, and that is where the magical moment unfolded. As Azalea came into the room a pianist started to play, and she was faced with a gorgeous display containing paint cans, flowers, paint brushes, and of course a mural of the city with “Will You Marry Me?” painted across. Azalea was still in shock as Paul dropped to one knee and presented her with the ring! After receiving a ‘Yes’ the group of singers broke out into a celebratory group dance and Paul and Azalea shared a wonderful champagne toast! Congratulations Paul and Azalea!

The Proposal Planner: Shkelzen and Fortune

Posted by Sarah PeaseOct 28, 2013

Shkelzen proposed to Fortune in an incredibly romantic fashion.  As a nod to her first name, and that she is his treasure, he popped the question inside an old bank vault turned wine cellar!  The couple arrived at the restaurant and were escorted to their own private wine vault.  In this intimate setting we created an installation consisting of twelve vintage safety deposit boxes overflowing with lush flowers.  Each box held an envelope hand-calligraphed with each month of the year.  Inside each envelope was a card that had his favorite memory from their one-year relationship written on it.  The last envelope, however, held a note about what Shkelzen was looking forward to in their future together.  After reading all of the sentimental notes, he proposed and Fortune said yes!  To celebrate their engagement they enjoyed a romantic dinner together in the privacy of the wine vault.  Congratulations, Shkelzen and Fortune!
