Proposal Location: Cafe Lurcat - Minneapolis, MN
“When you know, you know.”
Nearly two years ago to the day, a chance connection brought these two together. On the second anniversary of their first date, Alex planned out a lovely afternoon of surprises which would end in his asking of a very important question! A lot of thought and careful planning went into this sweet plan… I’d been looking forward to this day for months! Alex had thought through every little detail and the day finally arrived.
The morning began with a dusting of snow — yes, on October 14 — then again, this is Minnesota!
As the flurries disappeared, a crisp chill lingered in the air… perfect for a cozy carriage ride, snuggled under some blankets. Alex surprised Victoria with a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride along St. Anthony Main and through the streets of downtown Minneapolis, ending at the Basilica. To cap off the special day, Alex had another big surprise for Victoria — a private table in the secluded mezzanine at Cafe Lurcat.
Lit with some beautiful candlelight and a table set for two, Alex took Victoria’s hands in his and asked her to marry him with a stunning oval-cut, halo set diamond ring. SHE SAID YES! After popping off some champagne to kick off their engagement, we ventured out to Loring Park for a few portraits of the two of them to remember this day. Upon returning to the cafe, they snuck in a few slow dances away from the crowds below and then capped off the night with a romantic candlelight dinner. Truly a night to remember!
Congratulations, lovebirds!! I’m so happy you both found your “person” in each other!
