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

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: 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!

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: Daniel and Elena

Posted by Sarah PeaseFeb 03, 2014

Elena thought she and Daniel were just going to dinner, but instead what she got was a night that she would never forget. This beautiful proposal all started when the couple was asked if they wanted to watch the premier of a short film that was about to be played on a jumbo screen mounted on the side of the building.  As the video started and Elena and Daniel stood and watched, Elena soon began to realize that it was a personal slide show which consisted of pictures of the two of them. The last slide presented the words “Will You Marry Me?” and as Daniel dropped to one knee, Elena instantly burst into tears. Daniel then had one last surprise. Wanting to honor and represent Elena’s passion for cooking, he presented her with a beautiful cutting board that was personally engraved with their names and engagement date. The couple concluded with a celebratory champagne toast. Congratulations Daniel and Elena!

The Proposal Planner: Josh and Natalyia

Posted by Sarah PeaseDec 23, 2013

Josh let Natalyia know almost everyday that she is the one he wants to spend the rest of his life with. He now was ready for that big moment to make it official, and there was no holding back with this one. The proposal started by teaming up with the interactive play, Sleep No More, where Josh was to pop the question at their exclusive rooftop restaurant, Gallow Green (before it was even open to the public!). Natalyia still had no idea, and believed that she was just another individual partaking in this interactive experience. When both of them finally met, they stood on the rooftop  inside an old vintage train car which was surrounded by pages of poetry written by Pabloe Neruda, one of the couple’s favorite poet. After getting down on one knee and receiving a yes, the two of them were ushered away in a stunning 1932 Hupmobile to enjoy dinner at Natalyia’s favorite restaurant, Daniel’s. Josh surprised Natalyia further by having them enjoy dinner in the restaurant’s private sky box and was served by the executive chef himself. The next day the couple was off to Greece and France and we couldn’t be happier for them. The amazing couple’s proposal was featured in the New York Post and on Good Morning America! Congratulations Josh and Natalyia!
