The Most Romantic Marriage Proposal Ever

Oct 07, 2011

First, I want to offer our deepest and most heartfelt congratulations to Chris and Elida.  I cannot think of a better way to start off your life together, and may it be a long and very happy one.  I also have to say thank you again for letting us be a part of it.  It was an honor, and a privilege.
Now, on to why we are congratulating them. Every once in a while, a project comes along that you are just honored to be part of.  If I have a complaint about this one, it’s that this client has made life more difficult for every poor schlub who has yet to propose to their girlfriend.  Is it really fair to raise the bar *that* high?

Here’s the short version.  Chris ( the Client ) created an 9 piece puzzle based on the shape of the engagement ring.  He had us cut each panel of the puzzle, and then etch a drawing and a poem or verse about a significant moment in their relationship onto the piece .  This was not second rate drivel, either – this was the genuine article. (  The man made snails romantic, people.  Snails!  )

He distributed the pieces around Dallas at locations that were important to both of them, and sent her on a scavenger hunt.  Each piece had a clue with it that lead to the next.  The final clue lead to the Lakewood theatre, where you can see the marquee below.


In case there was any doubt, she did say yes.
