My love of Paris is no secret; my whole studio is built on the foundation of love, romance, and Paris with actual pictures of my trip to Paris on my pink studio walls. I was just completing the hardest 2.5 days of my life at Rapport Leadership International 2 hours away from the exciting lights of Las Vegas. I stepped off the bus after a 2 hour bus ride completely exhausted and not looking forward to my red eye that was not Non-Stop if you can believe that. I was shocked and completely surprised when my boyfriend came out of nowhere and said “I have upgraded your ticket” WHAT??????? I couldn’t believe it! not only because I was mentally on another planet but the whole logistics of him flying in, canceling my flight and booking the most romantic weekend ever without me suspecting a thing!
I was whisked off to the Trump hotel with a corner suite that was HUGE not to mention the best views of the Las Vegas strip! I couldn’t believe how happy I was that I didn’t have to get on that 11:30pm red eye never thinking that I was about to be proposed to. Raymond (the love of my life) told me that he made a reservation at the Eiffel Tower restaurant, Oh La La I was so excited and still in a fog. I got ready, picked out a black sequined quarter sleeve Tahari mini and my red Valentino’s and we were on our way. Raymond had spent time on all the details from meeting with my parents for dinner while I was away to receive their blessing, a private elevator ride up to the top of the Eiffel Tower to a custom menu with the best bubbly I have ever tasted. I am going along with this whole romantic night not thinking that this was THE NIGHT. Once we got to the top of the Eiffel Tower it was 25 degrees which added to all the romance. After I made peace with how high we were and stepped away from the railing Raymond got down on one knee and asked “Will you marry me?” Did I mention that I was still in dream land not really computing that this all was really happening? I said YES!!!!! It was such a beautiful night full of romance, love and Paris.
As a wedding hair and makeup artist having over 150 weddings under my pink belt, I look forward to creating the most romantic wedding in 2012.
