Working with Allen, who is both incredibly kind and lives in Australia, to create his dream proposal was an absolute blast. Many late night and early morning phone calls were made between Allen in Australia and myself in New York, but the end product was a truly unique proposal. Fen believed she was meeting Allen’s parents in New Jersey and sightseeing on her first trip to New York City, but what she didn't know was that Allen had been planning a Harry Potter-themed proposal for her. Allen made a lunch reservation at an exclusive club in Manhattan, which served as the perfect backdrop for this memorable proposal. As Allen and Fen arrived, I led Allen to the private dining room while Fen was taken to the coatroom and then escorted to Allen. Fen was met with a glass vile filled with a quote from Harry Potter. After reading it she opened the door to the private room, which was decorated with Harry Potter books, vintage bottles made to look like potion bottles and an abundance of romantic roses and candles, and was confronted by a kneeling Allen and an engagement ring. After she said yes, the two enjoyed a romantic lunch for two. The happy couple's imaginative engagement was even featured in the New York Post. If you missed it, click here to read! Congratulations, Allen & Fen!
