Proposals are my absolute favorite features here on Something Turquoise! So of course I was thrilled to receive this adorable proposal from Elle Rose | Photo. Bob secretly devised a plan to propose to Katie before they attended a special New Years Eve dinner. In cahoots with her bestie, they figured she’d be all dressed up and it wouldn’t seam too weird if he had extra plans for them because of the holiday. Bob decided on the low-key, low-tourist location of the lit up gazebo along Chicago’s famous Lake Shore Drive, right in front of the Drake Hotel

I was hiding behind trees as they walked up, and started snapping away as Bob got down on one knee. Katie did not mind the freezing raindrops coming down them one bit at that point. After I crawled out from behind the trees, we snapped some post proposal ring shots and took a quick few inside before their dinner reservation.” -Laurie Schuetter of Elle Rose | Photo

Thank you so very much for featuring our proposal story. Seeing this on the ol' interweb brings me bag to that moment so vividly. Laurie's amazing photography also help with the vivid image we'll forever have!

P.S. I wrote about how incredible your site is on a post earlier this week. I'm fixated with everything you blog about.
