Ben & Jerry's
This sweet couple had their very first date at this Ben & Jerry's ice cream shop in the picturesque lakeside town of Wayzata, Minnesota. After five years of dating, Nick decided that it would be the perfect place to pop the question to his sweetheart.
Although Nick's and Grace's families both lived in the area and would be able to surprise the bride-to-be after he popped the question, the couple's precious grandparents would not be able to attend. Knowing how important it was for them to feel as if they were part of the experience, Nick hired Alma Films to capture the moment in both video and photography.
We had a large balloon bouquet made for the occasion by Party Safari in Wayzata. However, they did not have any "she said yes" ballooons. No problem - years of calligraphy experience and a big Sharpie marker produced a very fun balloon to top the arrangement!
The staff at Ben & Jerry's opened early just for the happy couple and their families. Everyone hugged, cried tears of joy and got to choose their favorite treat. Grace & Nick got theirs in champagne glasses for a very "sweet" toast to their new life together!
In a truly full-circle moment, the couple chose to have a Ben & Jerry's ice cream cart as part of their reception at the Calhoun Beach Club the following September. All the guests enjoyed a deliciously different late-night treat!
Let us help you brainstorm, strategize, plan and execute the perfect proposal based on your special relationship. It's one of our very favorite things to do!
