Helicopter Ride and Mountain Top Landing - Hanif's Proposal to Fatimah

These girls made our dream come true, it was absolutely flawless. Everything from the helicopter ride to the couples massage. We have such fond memories captured on video and in photos. We will never forget this day and we will always cherish this moment for the rest of our lives. We will definitely be using this company again.
— Hanif V.

He already knew what her dream proposal was, no need for custom ideas with this one! Fatimah's dream was to take a helicopter to the top of a mountain and be proposed to surrounded by snow and fresh mountain air! 

Absolutely made Fatimah's dream come true - the tricky part was executing her dream and ensuring she'd be surprised. Absolutely reached out to her best friend and sister to have all hands  on deck. Absolutely and Rizwana, Fatimah's best friend worked on a script she would say to Fatimah. When ready, Rizwana called Fatimah, excited she had won a prize at work: a helicopter ride! The catch? They would be accompanied by a photography and videography team to capture content for their website the day of. Next, we reached out to Hamidah. Fatimah's sister to take her out for a sister-date at the spa. They would be getting their hair and nails done. 

With all the pieces of the puzzle set, we needed to swap Rizwana for Hanif and make it believable. We instructed Rizwana, to call in sick the morning of the proposal and to have the team onsite in on it. We worked with everyone involved, the team at Alpine Helicopters Inc., our photographer, Jeremy Martel at JM Photography and our videographer, Harrison Burton with Glass Stone Cinema to act confused when the couple arrived. When Hanif and Fatimah arrived, the Alpine Helicopters Inc. crew mentioned they had thought it would be two women, Fatimah explained how her friend, Rizwana had caught the flu and that her boyfriend Hanif would fill her spot. Next, the couple was mic'd up by our videographer and again he mentioned he thought that he was filming two women - "not to worry," he instructed "we will make this work!"

Hanif, Fatimah, Harrison and Jeremy all attended a safety demonstration before boarding the helicopter. They took a beautiful flight through Marvel Pass before landing on the top of a mountain. When landed, Hanif couldn't wait to pop the question and when he did, she said "Absolutely!" Jeremy and Harrison captured it all! The day proceeded with a full engagement shoot atop the mountain and then again below at the Alpine Helicopter Inc. base. It was a short drive to the second location, Quarry Lake, Canmore AB. After the photoshoot, Hanif and Fatimah enjoyed the day in Banff and Canmore before enjoying a romantic couples massage. 

Little did I know that on Saturday November 11, 2017 I would get engaged to my best friend Hanif Virani. Thank you to the ladies at Absolutely Proposals for perfectly executing the plan to make it happen! They magically transformed our dream into a reality. From the moment I set foot on the helicopter I knew it was going to be magical. From the scenic views to the dream proposal to the photo shoots that made us feel like we were celebrities to the relaxing couples massage... ALL of it was absolutely amazing. Thank you for capturing our most precious moments and for giving us the opportunity to re-live those moments through the videos and photos. We definitely recommend Absolutely Proposals to everyone out there and thank them once again!

Tan Lines and Good Times – Kelly-Anne’s Bachelorette Party

Kelly-Anne and Cody’s story with Absolutely began with an intimate proposal surrounded by family and friends. After she said “Absolutely” we were thrilled Kelly-Anne reached out to us to plan her bachelorette party and bridal shower.  

 

Kelly-Anne had always dreamed of her bachelorette would be classy and fun, somewhere sunny and there DEFINITELY had to be a wine tour! Absolutely went straight to the drawing board with the perfect destination in mind, right in the heart of the Okanagan, Kelowna BC.

A house was booked, limo and wine tours were confirmed, invitations were sent and the stage was set for a great weekend!

Kelly-Anne and her best gals spent their weekend soaking up the sun, sipping wine and riding in class. 

Laura’s Last Sail before the Veil – Bachelorette Party

Laura’s Last Sail before the Veil – Bachelorette Party

After helping bride-to-be Laura and her fiancé Cody with their engagement party, we were delighted when her and her bridesmaids recruited us to assist with the upcoming bachelorette party. The engagement party was a blast, so we knew the bachelorette party needed to be just as much fun, if not more fun. Since the festivities would be taking place in the middle of summer and Laura grew up on the lake we figured what better place for the party than on the water! And so, Laura’s Last Sail before the Veil was born.

As soon as we had our theme established it was anchors away and planning began. The nautical theme was a dream come true to work with as there were so many ideas and activities we were able to envision.

The venue chosen was a cabin on Eagle Lake where we the ladies could have a riot both on and off the water. Supplies were bought, crafts were made and activities were planned over the months leading up to the bachelorette party. Eventually it was time to batten down the hatches and prepare the cabin for the ladies to come aboard.

 

The first evening of the two day celebration was spent combating dehydration from the hot sun at the Thirst Aid Station, spontaneous dance parties, bachelorette party games, and late night swims. In the morning after a dipping into the “Emergen-SEA Recovery Kits”, the captain and crew set sail on Eagle Lake where they soaked up the summer sun surrounded by nothing but water and islands.

They reminisced with the future bride and created new memories playing Beach Ball Roulette. It’s a simple game of throwing and catching, but you have to be warry of where your hand lands because it may mean it’s your turn to walk to plank. However if you’re lucky, your hand may land on something enjoyable, such as share a funny story about the bride. The final evening was one of the highlights of the celebration as the ladies played “Slip & Flip”. For those who are unfamiliar with this game, it’s time to get familiar. It’s the perfect combination of a favourite childhood activity and favourite party game; It’s Slip & Slide meets Flip Cup. What could be better than that?!

With a little help from Absolutely, this bride tribe sure knew how to rock the boat. If the stories we were told and the photos shared with us are any indication of the crew’s enjoyment, we’re sure these ladies will never forget those “nauti” two days at Laura’s Last Sail before the Veil!

"You're under arrest!" – Ravi's Proposal to Roxana

Absolutely Proposals were instrumental in our engagement. At first I didn't know what to expect, but after our first meeting I was at ease with how professional, friendly and knowledgable Caleigh and Ali were. I had some crazy and difficult ideas but they helped me narrow things down and coordinate my idea into an unforgettable engagement proposal while managing to plan some very romantic and special events for the day. I was very impressed as well as they were able to plan things and make changes so quickly as as things changed. I strongly recommend this company to anyone thinking about doing a proposal or other event - well worth the time to meet with them.
