You lovelies out there in SMP-land sure know how to propose. Whether you’re whisking your loved one off to some crazy cool locale, planning an intimate dinner for two or involving every last one of your family and friends, you always manage to make one of the most important moments of your life downright fabulous. And this sweet Chicago proposal planned to perfection by Citygirl Weddings is certainly no exception with a seriously cute set-up (a chance for Bulls tickets) and a group of amazing vendors in on the secret. See every awesome moment captured by Jake Preedin Photography right here.
From the Bride… My fiance just proposed to me, and Shar helped him plan everything… and I was SO SURPRISED. Everything was unbelievable! I am not one to be shocked, because I am very inquisitive (probably to the point of annoyance) but Shar helped him trick me well. Our proposal was so romantic – like something out of a movie!
Shar arranged for a photographer to ask my fiance and me to pose for a promotion for the Mystic Blue boat on Navy Pier. The photographer and assistant said that if we participated we would receive free Bulls tickets. Well, that was it – I bought it hook, line and sinker (pun intended). The photographer and assistant (decked in Mystic Blue and Official Photog gear) asked us to take a few last pictures on the Mystic Blue and we obliged. They lead us to a table display for Valentine’s Day (again a promotion for the boat), and on the table were framed pictures of me and my fiance amongst chocolate covered strawberries, framed love quotes, champagne, and roses. Next thing I knew he was down on one knee and a guitarist appeared playing one of our favorite songs! It was magical and the photographer captured everything. It could not have been more perfect!!!!
