What's it like helping men (or women!) plan a proposal?
It is one of the most rewarding experiences to work with a client on something so important and personal. Because it is such a personal experience, I work very closely with the client and really get to know them and their relationship. After the proposal, when I have earned their trust and they get to know me and my working style - I am often asked to plan their wedding, honeymoon and then stay on as their "go-to" creative person for all of life's special occasions (birthdays, anniversaries, family vacations, etc.)
Do you have a sweet story you'd like to share?
I was once working with a guy who was about to propose. I kept asking him if he had any special memories that we could work into the moment of his proposal. While all of his memories were special, he couldn't recall something specific thing that he wanted to work into the actual moment of the proposal. Then while brainstorming, he realized something he had forgotten. On one of the first phone conversations with his girlfriend, he had seen a shooting star while talking with her. She told him to make a wish. He did and wrote that he "hoped one day he would marry this girl." He realized that he might still had that very piece of paper all of these years later. He just had to find it! So after some searching he was able to locate the piece of paper and he used it to propose. It was incredibly sweet that he had something like this to share with her on their proposal.
Which proposals are more exciting: big and extravagant or sweet and personal?
Both are incredibly exciting. It all depends on the personality of the person being proposed to. If they would rather something quiet and sweet, or big and loud, it is ALWAYS exciting to see how it will play out and what will happen.
Anything you've learned from your experience doing this?
That sometimes the quiet, serious ones have the best and most creative ideas.
