Throw Back Thursday: October Marriage Proposal

Throw Back Thursday: October Marriage Proposal

In the spirits of #throwbackThursday we are venturing back to one of my favorite “movie themed” marriage proposals! This sweet engagement in Las Vegas took place back in October 2011! This weekend is quite the hit, as we have two engagements and a wedding; it’s going to be a busy one but we’ll take it!
Are you ready for a whole lot of adorableness?! Steve decided he would propose to Janel on her favorite holiday, Halloween, but his marriage proposal was not what you may think. There were no creepy ghosts in this proposal, but rather one the cutest Disney Pixar’s love stories brought to life. With a little research and relationship intel from Steve, The Yes Girls had the pleasure of assisting him create and plan this amazing marriage proposal! Janel, Steve’s fiancee, shared her engagement experience below so keep reading past those eye-catching photos taken by Tara Romasanta Photography. Congrats again Steve and Janel!

Janel was kind enough to answer a few questions about their marriage proposal. We figured we should get her side of the story to see if the proposal really got the stamp of approval from the female’s perspective! It’s fun to read how perfect the marriage proposal really was in her eyes.

1. You and Steve have been together for awhile now, could you tell he was up to something?

I knew we’d get engaged before Christmas. Christmas and New Years were too cliche. Halloween was perfect, it is my favorite holiday!

2. What was your favorite part/element of the proposal?

I loved all the intricate details. Everything was perfect. Everything matched down to the chairs. If I have to chose one element, I think it was the theme. Up! truly is my favorite love story. I also loved that we got photos taken by a photographer as it happened. Photos are key for capturing the moment! It was also great that Steve bought me my favorite shoes just in time for the big moment, Louboutins!

3. Did the proposal meet your expectations of what you hoped your proposal would be one day?

Absolutely. Everything was perfect. The location was our favorite location/hotel. You captured my favorite movie and brought it to life!

I feel like my reaction was a bit subdued but I was truly shocked at the presentation and all the detail. It was simply lovely and magical.

4. What did you appreciate about Steve using our proposal planning services?

Steve is an entertainment professional so it makes complete sense. He is a perfectionist and your services allowed him to enjoy the day vs. running around figuring out the details.

5. Do you have a wedding date, venue of theme in mind?

To be honest, I have no theme or colors in mind. We will most likely get married on my grandfather’s 95th birthday-July 20th, 2013. I need over a year to plan this wedding considering all we do with our businesses. I also want to savor every part of the process.
