I had the joy, along with a few friends, of being asked to ‘create the magic’ for a friend’s engagement. I dare say that what I think I enjoy more than a wedding itself… is a proposal!
A proposal is SO special. Each one is even more so unique than a wedding, because you really have no idea how, where, and what is going to happen. A Proposal is so suited to an individual’s personality and a couple’s unique and personal character that NO two proposals are ever the same. ::sigh::
Alright, I’m swooning again already. Congratulations to Tim and Chris! Enjoy the beginning of the most amazing journey together. And savor this engagement time!
When planning the color palette we would use, I asked for favorite colors and Tim said Chris’ favorite was red and so was his. So, RED we went! Not only was it perfect (since red is the color of love and passion, and good luck in Chinese…!), it made it romantic as well.Tim didn’t have much to say in the way of how it all “looked”. This guy only had his eyes on the prize… getting down on one knee to ask the girl he loved most to marry him. So he just said he wanted the room to be “romantic” and include “sunflowers (Chris’ favorite color), candles and other nice girly things”. Ok, romantic here we come! Nothing beats romantic than soft candle and twinkle lights.
And for those of you who hung tight throughout this entire post, the best is yet to come! Pictures say a thousand words but moving video says millions!!! Here’s the proposal video shot by Lawrence Hui. Thanks to everyone for all of the folding, hanging, blacking-outing, cooking and helping!
