Christmas Surprise Proposal Chicago

Most Epic Christmas Proposal Chicago

Though a proposal is a prerequisite for almost every session we book (hey, I’m an engagement and wedding photographer, after all!), seldom am I present for the actual question popping! You can imagine my giddiness every time I get a call to photograph a proposal, then – I feel like I’m on a secret mission in the name of love!surprise proposal

My session with Alex and Alyssa started out with Karen reaching out to me to see if we’d be able to help Alex pull this off. (The answer to this is always yes, by the way). Then she explained how it was going to all go down: Karen ( Alyssa will be home for Christmas and Alex decided to fly from Texas where he lives and surprise Alyssa). On that day Karen and Alyssa -her daughter will be shopping at Macy’s then at 4:00 Pm they will visit Millenium Park. Initially we debated if the  Giant Bean wouldn’t be a better choice but in the end, the Wrigley Square with its beautiful Millennium Monument came as the winner.Alex very nervous.Long story short, Alysa and Karen passing by the Millenium Park and Alex got to do his act!

Finally, Alex got down on one knee and Alyssa was completely surprised couldn’t stop crying happy tears and shouted YES/OF COURSE!Alyssa arrived at Millenium park Alyssa was shocked to see Alex Alex got on one knee Alyssa being shocked Alyssa kissing Alex Wrigley Square surprise propsal Alex in one knee future bride surprised Alex showing to other guest shocked what love isAlex did such a good job of orchestrating this whole thing and keeping it a secret from Alyssa, which made for one of the most genuine and sweetest proposals! Not to mention the ring is gorgeous!expensive engagement ring

Alyssa was also shocked to see Alex’s family here in Chicago witnessing the proposal as well as her whole family that traveled from Crystal Lake.
