When I received Roy's heartfelt email all the way from Indiana with his wish to create a perfect, classic NYC proposal for Michele, it was an honor to help make it come true. We chose the Ladies Pavilion in Central Park for the location because it holds a very special meaning for Michele.
And, since she is all about the "moment," we designed the proposal around the concept of creating an art gallery of their love story.We used cream-colored french memo boards to display cards, photos and mementos of their lives together so far and invited 2 professional vocalists to perform Michele's favorite songs from West Side Story.
The pavilion was decorated to reflect the festive holiday season with the help of the talented and kind Juan from Juan M. Villanueva Designs. The garland was made from winter foliage, evergreens and accented with holly berries, and the entrance was framed by bright red amaryllis. Stay tuned for more show-stopping photos from Zlatko Batistich!
