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.
— Ravi L.

Ravi reached out to us because he wanted to propose to his girlfriend Roxana. They had been together for many years, were parents to an adorable little dog, Nami and had recently purchased a gorgeous home. It was definitely time to pop the question.

During our first phone call with Ravi he stated that he had a crazy idea in mind, and boy was he right. He wanted a police officer to pretend to arrest his future bride-to-be. We were immediately on board. We had never done a prank-posal, let alone one that would be so over the top, and we couldn’t wait to get started.

On the morning of the proposal we arrived early outside of the couple’s apartment to help our photographer and videographer stake out the place for the perfect hiding spots. We then met up with the police officer volunteering his time for the proposal to go over some final details. After that it was time to hide and wait.

Ravi and Roxana stepped outside to head to “brunch” when they were approached by the officer. After some discussion, background checks and lots of suspense, Roxana was told that there was a warrant out for her arrest as a result of a number of unpaid tickets. As expected there was shock and a few tears, but as we watched from across the street, we knew there would be happy tears very soon.

As the officer handed Roxana her ticket he explaned the charge was for “stealing Ravi’s heart”. As Roxana stared at the ticket in confusion, Ravi pulled out the ring and got down on one knee behind her. When she turned around her confusion melted away and was replaced by surprise! Ravi said those four magic words, “will you marry me” and the next chapter of their love story began.

The couple was then whisked away in a private car to Azuridge Estate. Waiting in the car was a bouquet of purple flowers, Roxana’s favourite colour, and a hand written love letter from Ravi.

At Azuridge the couple spent the day revelling in their engagement with a private art lesson, brunch and couples massage. After a busy day there was still one more surprise left. Ravi and Roxana returned home to find their apartment decorated with rose petals, candles, champagne on ice and chocolate covered strawberries.

 This was one of the most outrageous proposals we’ve ever done, and we loved every minute of it!
