Ange wanted to propose to his princess, Laurie. I drew inspiration from the famed Rockefeller Family, the closest thing to American royalty. As legend has it, one of the most elaborate Rockefeller parties involved each guest receiving a small silver trowel upon arrival. At the center of the dinner table was a long, low vase shaped like a trough, filled with sand. Each guest used their trowel to dig into the sand and find their gift - a perfectly cut ruby, emerald or diamond. We began Laurie's princess marriage proposal with a shopping spree at Bergdorf's. Upon returning to their suite, Laurie was surprised by a professional hair & makeup artist - all with the decoy of it being part of their preparation for a fancy evening out. They made their way up to the penthouse and and saw a glass trough filled with crystals: inside she discovered a tiara, Queen Mary Louboutin heels and finally, her ring! Tears of joy accompanied Laurie's "Yes!" and an incredible dinner at Le Cirque followed. Thanks to Maggie Harkov for the incredible photos.
