Marriage Proposal Chicago

Miguel and Josephina  Surprise Marriage Proposal Chicago

I have been in contact with Miguel for some time, as he was planning a surprise proposal in Chicago.  What he wanted to do it sounded more like a movie screen play.

We have been chatting a lot about best places for marriage proposal in Chicago and decided for the Milton Lee Olive Park near Navy Pier.

Not only he wanted to do a surprise proposal but he hired a mariachi band that came at Milton Olive Park and sang. Once he proposed we continued with a photo-video session around Chicago.
