I must admit how much I love working with clients who want to give an energy and emotions to their proposals. This normally happens with public proposals. Some people, however, think that marriage proposals should be totally private and intimate and that proposals in public are not considered genuine romance. My opinion is absolutely different. If you know your partner well and you know that she wouldn’t mind audience when proposing then there’s nothing wrong about that. Just go for it and show the entire world how much you love her!
When talking about public engagements, there has been an amazing increase of flash mob wedding proposals over the last years. I’m very happy I worked on one and a very special one with José from Guatemala. When José emailed me he already had an idea of how to propose and we just needed to realize it and make it a big surprise to Sofia.
In order to make this flash mob proposal memorable, José wanted to be involved in the dance and he also wished to have their two cute daughters to be included in some way. To prepare this proposal we had to:
✓ find a choreographer with dancers
✓ work on the choreography so José had a chance to learn his part before his departure from Guatemala
✓ get the gadgets that helped us to create an amazing atmosphere when popping the question
✓ find an ideal proposal spot so that Sofia couldn’t have any clue of what we prepared when she got there
✓ create a step-by-step schedule for José that he had to follow
✓ enjoy the moments and make Sofia to say ‘YES‘
Once, we had all arranged in details, we just had to wait for that moment when José dropped to one knee and popped the question. And here are those picture-perfect moments:
⬇︎ here Sofia had no clue that the performance was all for her
⬇︎ Sofia still confused about what's going on ⬇︎ here two dancers grabbed José in the middle of the dance ⬇︎ Sofia and her emotions
And because the two daughters were back in Guatemala and José really wanted them to be a part of this day too, we planned for a Skype video call during the proposal so not only two girls but also the rest of the family and friends could join and share the happiness of that day.
Congratulations José & Sofia!
It was a day to remember.
Good job, José!
