Alex called me, just a couple days before he planned on proposing to his girlfriend. He had already done some planning. He had contacted the (brand new) Durham Hotel and asked to use their roof. It has a very cosmopolitan, New York feel up there with a great view of the city and the sunset. He had them set out some roses on the corner table, to bring out champagne after she said yes, and oysters on the half shell after that. He knew she would say yes. He had said he could just feel it, that she was dropping little hints that she was ready. He was too and wanted it to be perfect.
p.s. All of this took place in the time span of 15 minutes. Amazing, right?
