Amanda and Kollin
Upon returning from a massage that he booked for my birthday, I came home to rose petals all over our apartment that led to our bedroom. On the bed we’re two envelopes. The first held a letter that described I would be going on a scavenger hunt to places all over Chicago that were special to us, but I would have to figure out clues to get there. The first clue led to our first apartment together. I walked in and found my cousin, Kate, holding clue two. The second clue led to a bridge in Lincoln Park where I found my sister, Ashley, holding clue three. The third clue led to Lincoln Park Conservatory, a very special place to Kollin and I. Clue four was inside the Conservatory and had a penny inside. Kollin said to make a wish in the pond and wait for the next surprise. I turned around to Kollin coming into the room. He got down on his knee and asked to spend the rest of our lives together.
A few moments later, a photographer came into the room and we went on a photo shoot to capture the day. Kollin had told me that we were having dinner with my family that weekend for my birthday. After the proposal I thought we would go back to our apartment and relax for a while then head to dinner. We got home, had some champagne and he said he had one more surprise. We walked to a hallway in our building and he opened the door leading into a room filled with our family and closest friends cheering in celebration. We spent the rest of the night having dinner, drinking and celebrating with everyone!
