The Proposal Planner: Ryan and Kimberlee

Working with Ryan to bring his Christmastime proposal to life was an absolute pleasure.  In a private room that was all decked out for the holidays there was a tree with unique ornaments hanging from it and a custom-made booklet sitting next to it. Kimberlee carefully read all of the pages, which were filled with drawings of the ornaments and accompanied by a description of each ornament's significance.  When Kimberlee arrived at the last page, Ryan dropped to one knee and proposed!  Following her yes, the couple celebrated their engagement at a private dinner table for two that overlooked the East River.  Congratulations, Ryan and Kimberlee!

Rooftop Marriage Proposal in Manhattan

George and Elise were engaged on a chilly December evening overlooking a million dollar view of the NYC skyline. We designed the proposal so that Elise arrived expecting a dinner party, but was instead surprised with a choir and orchestra playing her favorite song, Stille Nacht. Instead of a ring, George proposed with an incredible pair of Manolo Blahnik heels and promised her a beautiful engagement ring that they could select together. After their engagement they enjoyed a romantic dinner for two prepared by a private chef. Thanks to Jeff Tisman for these incredible photos and to Fast Company for featuring it as part of an article on Innovation Agents.

A Brilliant Marriage Proposal: Matt & Missy

Matt wanted to propose to Missy, who loves everything vintage and French so I designed their marriage proposal to reflect her taste for le francais but also their future together. We shut down a local french bistro and filled it with singers posing as regular patrons. Our friends from Pap the Question took paparazzi-style photos while the couple enjoyed a cup of tea.  They were transported back to 1920's France - a large iron structure decorated the private room with crystal chandeliers and fresh florals.  Tiny hang tags from each corner of the structure had a reason why Matt loves Missy. Underneath the structure was a 5-tier cake by Elegantly Iced and a custom-crafted wooden wine box with their names. Inside was a bottle of 2008 Pinot Noir - a vintage from the year they met. They plan to use the box as a time capsule and open it on their 10 year anniversary. Missy said YES and the vintage fun continued with a 1920's limousine chauffering them to a private dinner at one of NYC's best restaurants.  Their proposal was featured in the New York Times and in USA Today. Special thanks to Pap the Question for the amazing photo & video.  Congratulations to Matt & Missy and stay tuned for the video...coming soon!
