Time Themed Proposal at Longue Vue House and Gardens
HOW DID YOU MEET?
Carly and I met playing pick-up basketball in San Francisco. When we were taking a break on the sidelines, Carly asked me how old I was. I thought that was a very odd way to start a conversation with someone you didn’t know, so it intrigued me. Carly thought I was cute, but too young for her, so she wanted to check. We quickly realized that we are only seven months a part. That day I convinced her to come to pick-up soccer night. At soccer, I was excited to see her. She couldn’t figure out how to get in the building, so she emailed the email thread. I responded right away with my number to slyly find a way to give her my number. I also made sure not to reply all on the thread to keep it under wraps. In my nervous excitement, I mistyped my number, so when she called, it didn’t work. Luckily she found her way in and later that week we had our first date and kiss. That was four and a half years ago.
How did she propose?
Carly and I planned a week trip to New Orleans for some time. We had never been to the south. Carly told me that she got us a tour of Longue Vue House and Gardens. When we got there, a woman handed us each a glass of champagne and told us to explore the garden before we start the house tour. The woman also mentioned that off to the right was her favorite part of the garden. When we eventually got to the “off to the right” part of the garden, I saw a big display of clocks in front of a beautiful pond. One clock said, “I want to spend the rest of time with you”. Music started playing and I quickly realized this was her proposal. She pulled out the ring from her pocket and popped the question. A photographer came out from behind a post and started capturing everything. After the proposal, we took a bunch of pictures with the photographer around the beautiful gardens and drank more champagne. Carly completely surprised me by secretly planning the proposal with Stacey Asaro at Project Proposal. Stacey was the woman with champagne pretending to be the tour guide. It felt like a scene straight out of a movie!
Mirror Themed Proposal at City Park, New Orleans
Byron and Jenee had an unbounded love for each other transcending past their individual weaknesses. Byron knew that Jenee loved him unconditionally and wanted all the best for him even when she felt inadequate. Byron wanted her to be his future and knew a significant part of how he wanted to propose to her but needed help piecing it all together. Byron approached Project Proposal to help him out with a true New Orleans proposal. The questionnaire he filled clearly indicated that above all, he wanted the proposal to reflect her as his perfection and his definition of an embodiment of pure love.
Together with Byron, Project Proposal came up with a lovely mirror themed set up based on a purpose of encouragement of introspection into beauty inside and outside.
The lovely couple used a Gondola which glided across City Park, New Orleans and then the two lovebirds walked across the paved bridge to a private island all draped in Spanish Moss. Byron and Jenee walked together to James Arthur’s ‘Say You Won’t Let Go’ to an open area with a table with an assortment of mirrors all around and on it with Spanish Moss to add contrast and life it all.
The different mirrors faced different directions to imply various perspectives in life which all reflect back the same person. The centerpiece was a large mirror on a beautiful stool padded in white with colorful flowers which were next to the big mirror which lay against the table with the words ‘You Are the Perfect Reflection of My Soul’ on its reflective surface. Byron proposed to the love of his life and now the two soulmates are engaged to be married!
