On a humid Wednesday night, we met Mike in the back of a grocery store parking lot. He pulled up in a white van, and nervously handed us a black backpack. If someone was watching from afar, they totally would have thought that something fishy was going down…haha! What they wouldn’t have seen was just how happy Mike was that night. The smile on his face was indescribable. It was pure happiness. After all, he was going to propose to the love of his life in two days, and we were going to capture this beautiful moment. Oh, and the backpack contained an iPad and speakers. He wanted us to play Francesca’s favorite songs when he was on his knee asking her the most romantic question ever.
This beautiful proposal took place at Milton Olive Lee Park. Mike was secretly texting us all day. He even was able to sneak a picture of their outfits before heading over! He planned everything perfectly. With the foggy Chicago skyline and Dave Matthews Band playing in the background, these two lovebirds began a new adventure together. Congrats!
Here are some of our favorites from Francesca and Mike’s Milton Lee Olive Park proposal!
