A couple of months ago we were approached to help plan a really unique wedding proposal. We were excited about this adventure and enjoyed the entire process. Below you will see photographs from Belen from Orange2Photo and Videography from Joey at Shift Focus Productions. Thank you to everyone at Lula Cafe and all of our “extras” for helping make this such a special evening for Ken and Elena.
Here is the story of Ken and Elena …
They met on match.com in September 2011. On their first date, they had two high-fives and 20 minutes of conversation before even placing their drink order. Their second date was a 14 hour adventure culminating in a 500 person robot vs. human all-night scavenger hunt/game of tag through the streets of Chicago. From there, the countless adventures continued…travel to four continents…… hiking, climbing, skiing, camping, scuba diving…parties, concerts, and dancing…meeting family and friends…moving in together.
On a typical Tuesday night, Ken took Elena out for a “date night” to one of her favorite Chicago restaurants. Little does she know the restaurant is really closed and filled with extras. Ken excuses himself to the restroom…
