Surprise Proposal for Two Beautiful Brides | Lauren Loves Erika

 This surprise proposal for two brides to be!  Lauren proposed to Erika in the Gallery of Mandarin Oriental.  Las Vegas Wedding Planner Andrea Eppolito designed the proposal planning and worked with Flora Couture and LED Unplugged on the beautiful installation.  Images by Fabio and Adri.  

You never know who you will meet, or when.  Three years ago, Lauren handled the deal that put my husband and I into new cars.  During the deal, as I gave her my card, she said, "Wow!  A wedding planner.  I'll be calling you when I decide to get married."

And now, just as my lease term came up, the phone rang.  Lauren wasn't trying to put me in another Lexus....She was trying to close a deal of her own!  Just eight months after meeting Erika, another retired veteran, she just knew.  The way you know.  And when she did, she called me.  

I had barely one week to put together the proposal of a lifetime.  We devised a plan to get Erika all dressed up; a faux award ceremony.  We wrangled the ring, booked the space, adorned it with roses, candles, and a stunning free formed structure under which I set Lauren....

We told Erika that Lauren was needed for Honoree Photos.  She waited, patiently, while we set Lauren up.  Moments later, I went to fetch Erika, telling her that Lauren asked her to join the rest of the panel in a photo.  We chatted as we crossed the pathway about their service, their businesses, and their altruism.  Just before I opened the door for her, I adjusted the strap on her dress.  She looked at me and said, "Thank you, but I don't think anyone is going to care what I look like!"  I smiled, opened the door, and then this happened...

PS - In case you are curious....I did a little deal of my own and once again got another Lexus.  After all....with a sales person like this, I'm a driver for life!
