The Heart Bandits have planned over 300 proposals and worked with men all around the world. I have to say that this particular client Abdou, would just stop at nothing to make sure his proposal to Rosy was over the top. We actually had the pleasure of planning Abdou’s brother George’s proposal in Sedona. George’s proposal was very romantic and elaborate itself (as you can see here) so we wanted to ensure that Abdou’s was just as great but with its own uniqueness.
A couple of things that should be noted about Abdou and Rosy. 1) They are both actually from the same town in Lebanon but didn’t meet until they were both in the U.S.. 2) They like salsa music and dancing. Also, Rosy really like stars and celebrities so we wanted to make sure that she was treated like one in this concept.
For their Los Angeles proposal idea, Abdou and Rosy had a two-part plan. The first part included Abdou taking Rosy to a dance studio where they received private salsa lessons and had a great time. Immediately after the lesson, Abdou told her he had another surprise. They stepped outside and to her surprise a limo was waiting for them!
Rosy had no idea where they were going but they were dropped off in front of a building in downtown LA. They were lead to the penthouse floor where pink and purple rose petals (Rosy’s favorite colors) were laid out in a path. Candles surrounded this path that lead to some stairs to the rooftop. As soon as they reached the rooftop, a full salsa band began playing romantic music just for them and Abdou lead her to a large framed sign. The sign was a map of Lebanon and said “I always dreamed my wife would come from my hometown”.
At that point, Abdou got down on one knee and proposed. Rosy of course said YES! The band then began playing more upbeat salsa music and they danced to the moves they just learned. There was even a custom-made dance floor that said “Rosy, you’re my dream come true”. After some dancing, they were served a delicious dinner for two at the only table on the rooftop that had amazing views of downtown LA. It was simply amazing and beautiful. Congrats to Abdou and Rosy!
