Connor + Elena Proposal
Connor contacted me with the most perfect plan to surprise Elena. Initially, Connor had been out of town and wanted to surprise Elena at Millennium Park with the help of his sister Carly, then propose! But these Chicago Winters squashed those plans with it being -15 the day we planned everything for! Avoiding frost bite, Connor pushed the proposal back by 2 days with warmer temperatures. Connor got his family together at the park and told Elena that it was a "family night" so she expected to see his family there. I arrived about a half hour before hand to meet up with his family and get into position. Connor and Elena asked a family member to take a photo of them in front of the famous Christmas Tree, then Connor got on one knee. There was not a dry eye around and there was SO much excitement. After the proposal, I introduced myself to Elena (& Connor, we hadn't had a chance to meet beforehand!!) and I took them on a walk around the park to get some formal photos together. The cityscape and the Christmas lights made for the most perfect setting for a perfect proposal. Congrats Connor and Elena!!
ps. Shoutout to Connor's sister Carly who hooked us up and made this magic happen! (and helping with lighting!!!)
