This is Love: The Wedding Proposal

Let me apologize in advance to all the guys I will make look really bad in this post. This is one of the best proposals EVER. First, a little background. I got an inquiry from N in Dubai. He was dating the girl of his dreams, was planning to propose to her in September in Barcelona, but since they would happen to be in Miami soon, “could I meet with them?” Fast forward a few days later and N calls again – - he would be proposing while in Miami the night before our meeting. S, his fiance to be, was not in favor of meeting a wedding planner before actually being engaged!

People, this put a huge smile on my face. It’s not everyday a wedding planner has a heads up on a proposal. I knew we had to capture “the moment.” So secret agents, here was N’s plan (and the man thought of everything). He would arrange a his and her spa treatment at the amazing Spa at Viceroy Miami. The undercover photographer, none other than Stacey of Ambrosio Photography along with Viceroy Spa Management, would inform the couple that she was shooting general shots of the Spa and its patrons for a publication and that they should basically ignore her. In fact, Stacey was pretty much out of sight the entire time. After the treatment, N would invite her to dine where he secretly arranged a private dinner for two on the 50th floor of Viceroy Miami at the fantabulous Club 50, with a menu prepared with S’s favorite dishes. Yes. He. Did.

Little did S know our genius photographer secretly mounted a camera under a table to strategically capture “the moment.” Honestly, tell me another photographer who can take these pictures without being in the room. That’s why I love you Stace!

Fast forward again to “the moment.” Candlelights filled Club 50. Her favorite flowers were perfectly poised. Her favorite song swayed in the air as N and S danced in a circle of rose petals. As their song came to an end, N rubbed his stomach to signal to their private waiter to bring over the mini silver plate cover, which hid the engagement ring. Then the visibly nervous N, went down on bended knee and asked S for her hand in marriage. Pause. It’s actually hard to believe that S had no idea all of this was being documented because so amazing are the pictures that tell this story:

I know you want to see more amazing pics, so here they are set to Sade’s “By Your Side.” While chatting with S about their relationship, she told me she knew N would always be by her side. This is love.

P.S. Kudos to Viceroy Miami who orchestrated everything beautifully! And on a side note, how ridiculously gorgeous is this couple?

Envy - Double Wow! I’ve heard of renewing one’s vows, but what about renewing (re-doing) one’s proposal (avec photographer)!!!
