Coral and Michael

Engagement Proposal Ideas in Guthrie Theater

How We Met

I met Michael, while working at the Sears store, in the Eden Prairie Mall. I was a cashier, and he was a tool salesman. He immediately got my attention, and as soon as I got home, I couldn’t wait to tell my roommate about him. I didn’t know his name, so I called him the, “hot guy from Sears.” For many months, my roommate, Claire, and I, would talk about the hot guy from Sears every time he would smile at me or say hi. Eventually, he gave me his phone number, and I (not so) patiently waited for him to ask me out. After a couple of weeks of waiting, I took the matter into my own hands, and asked if we were, “going to hang out?” ;)

How He Asked

A month ago, my friend, Kaila, asked me to attend her work’s Christmas party. My initial thought was, “Why not invite your boyfriend?” But, I love spending time with Kaila, and it sounded like a great girls’ night out! A few weeks go by, and we talk about the details of the Christmas party. She said that we would be crafting at the Guthrie Theater, (one of my favorite places downtown). I was so excited! The morning of the Christmas party, I was out shopping with my friend, Katie. The party started at 4:30, and we wanted to get there early. I didn’t pay attention to the time, and by the time I got home from shopping, I only had 30 minutes to pick up Kaila and get to the party. I felt horrible! I didn’t want to be late for my friend’s party! As soon as we got to the Guthrie, Kaila led me out to the balcony, where her coworkers were supposedly waiting. I looked around for her coworkers when I spotted a man that looked like Michael. After doing a double take, I realized that it was Michael! Instantly, I started balling. Michael asked my favorite photographer to come and takes pictures of the proposal, which was such a wonderful surprise! Afterwards, we went to my favorite restaurant, The Melting Pot, and watched “The Christmas Carol,” at the Guthrie. It was the best night of my life! I am so grateful for Kaila and all of the hard work she put in to surprise me! And I am incredibly blessed to have such a thoughtful fiancé. My heart is full. ❤️
