Cinderella Proposal

This Cinderella -inspired proposal was one truly fit for a princess!

Every man dreams of making their girlfriend feel like a princess. Thompson did just that; creating an entire evening for his future bride-to-be. Thompson proposed to Sabrina after a whirlwind evening of romance and spectacle. We feel so lucky to have made this fairytale proposal come true!


Sabrina had no idea of the evening planned for her when she arrived at the Starbucks at the Intercontinental Hotel on Michigan Avenue. She even texted Thompson about a possible movie star at the Starbucks after noticing the cameras! Thinking she was there for a job interview, she was in awe when the Visions team escorted her to hair and makeup. Thompson was truly prince charming, gifting her a new white dress with a tulle skirt to wear, making her feel like a princess inside and out. The outfit was completed with a pair of Cinderella-esque silver slippers. Sabrina was blown away when she spotted Thompson waiting for her in the magnificent Hall of Lions within the Intercontinental. The space was adorned with red roses and candles lining the steps Sabrina walked up to meet her beloved.

This was not the proposal location, however. Thompson made it clear that he wanted his proposal to be a full evening affair. With mugs of hot chocolate to keep them warm, Sabrina was whisked away on a horse-drawn carriage ride around Chicago. Sites like the Magnificent Mile and the Chicago River helped add to the romantic atmosphere created by Thompson and the Visions team. The couple arrived at the beautiful Tiffany Celebration Garden, where Thompson professed his love, dropping to one knee. After a tearful yes by Sabrina, she and Thompson embarked back to the Intercontinental’s Michael Jordan’s Stake House, where they shared their first dinner as an engaged couple.

This Cinderella -inspired proposal was one for the ages, an all-night event that kept the romance going on and on. Sabrina looked absolutely beautiful in her new dress, and was beaming with her love for Thompson throughout the whole night. The Hall of Lions and horse-drawn carriage ride made for an enchanting evening, leading up to the intimate proposal. Sabrina and Thompson’s night was one straight out of a fairytale, and we couldn’t be happier for their new life together!
