I don’t think there is too much that can be said about the obvious… Amit wanted a unique and memorable proposal to his longtime girlfriend Tina, and he wanted it to be very special. So special in fact that over the course of a couple of months of exchanging e-mails back and forth, he outlined a very specific time table down to the minute of how he wanted the proposal to go, and also who all would be involved in participating and documenting this special event in their lives… Bottom line, I knew he was serious!!
There was actually another plan he had in mind for the proposal, but after consulting with family, friends, and even those of us to be involved, he decided the original idea would be to easy for Tina to figure out what was going on…so he switched it to a weekday during the lunch hour to throw her off, and under the guise of her firm meeting with a new client, changed the location to an apartment building downtown on Lake Street where Tina used to live when she and Amit began dating (but I still wonder if she caught on to something since her “client meeting” was to take place at the building she once lived…I guess Tina would know). Needless to say, this location was optimal for many reasons…still to throw her off the plan, yet to serve as a symbol of a place where they shared so many moments and memories as their love story began to unfold.
I was privileged to have shared in this moment with them, and I wish Amit and Tina all the best as they begin their life journey together! Enjoy!!
