I know, I know we say this about all of the proposals we plan. But seriously, THIS is one of our favorite proposal to share with you because working with Meks was so delightful! Meks contacted us about his Los Angeles engagement because he needed some help coming up with the perfect proposal for his girlfriend Chinwe. He wanted a proposal that incorporated their love of the outdoors, adventure, sophistication, and class. He also wanted something that would leave Chinwe wondering all day about when the proposal was going to come.
Meks and The Heart Bandits worked together to create a bicycle scavenger hunt. They checked in to a bike rental shop and there they were told that everyone that comes in is is asked to participate in a short scavenger hunt. Meks and Chinwe happily obliged and set on their way to find the first clue. The first station was a candy bar filled with Chinwe’s favorite sweets. She thought it was a cute coincidence, but didn’t think much of it. Next, the clue lead them to a station where there were two little figurines and a card that talked about their first date. Suddenly, Chinwe knew this was no regular scavenger hunt. The third clue took them to an area with a map that said “Meks and Chinwe, Where there is love distance doesn’t matter”, vintage luggage, and photos. That map symbolized how Chinwe had to go back to Nigeria and Meks couldn’t be without her. He hopped on a plane and flew to see her shortly after she left and they have been inseparable ever since.
The final clue told them to return the bikes and get dressed up for another surprise. Chinwe followed the instructions and at 7pm she found a limo waiting to take her to Drago Centro, a sophisticated and classy restaurant. About an hour into the dinner, Michele from The Heart Bandits interrupted their dinner to tell Chinwe that there was a surprise outside. When she walked out, she was flooded with emotion. Meks had hired a jazz band (her favorite music) to serenade her by their own private fireplace. Meks slow danced with her and then proposed. Chinwe looked gorgeous and the happiest I have ever seen a lady look. She said yes and there wasn’t a dry eye around.
