She said Absolutely! The Singh’s Engagement created with Absolutely Proposals

A Romantic Saturday in September


On the evening of September 2nd, we met up with Caleigh and Ali of Absolutely Proposals and Romantic Events, to witness the engagement of Alan and Taren. He had reached out to the girls on the Wednesday before the weekend, to let them know he was interested in their help with a simple and romantic proposal. He wanted to do dinner and a walk, so Ali and Caleigh took it to the next level. They scouted a few spots in Prince’s Island Park near the River Café, and found the perfect location! In a treed meadow, just off the main path, they found a spot ideal for the proposal. Using their endless talent, they created an amazing space with beautiful lanterns, candles, and flowers! We met up with them as they were putting the final touches on the space. Meanwhile, Alan and Taren were at the River Café having dinner. The plan was to tell Taren there was a movie in the park, giving them a reason to head down the path toward the secret spot, where he could surprise her. Taren, however, had put two and two together. In their culture, to get her away for the weekend, Alan needed permission from her parents. They are both from Edmonton, and both live at home, and therefore the weekend-long trip to Calgary had to mean something special.
<h3>A Romantic Saturday in September</h3>
Earlier in the day, the ladies at Absolutely had sent Alan a map, detailing the plan and locations. The couple parked in Eau Claire, got ready at their hotel, walked across the bridge to Prince’s Island Park, and headed down to dinner. When they had wrapped up their meal, Alan sent the girls a text message, alerting them that they were about to leave the River Café. We saw Alan and Taren leave dinner just after sunset, and stroll along the path in our direction. They came across a large rock in the middle of the path, upon which there was a letter addressed to Taren. It read: Turn to your right and follow the light. A path lined with lit up mason jars and tea lights pointed them in the right direction. When they reached the end, they came upon the proposal site, complete with twinkling lights, flowers, a sheepskin rug, big pillows, cupcakes, and a bottle of champagne. A second letter addressed to Taren put her in the perfect position for us to photograph the big moment. She opened to envelope to find a love letter, written by Alan. At the bottom, he asked if she would marry him. When she turned, he was already on one knee. And she said yes! Alan popped the bottle of champagne in celebration. We photographed the happy couple under the beautiful trees and lights and restaged some of the big moments to get the perfect shot. We also snapped a few close-ups of Taren’s gorgeous new ring. Passersby were curious and were impressed with the set-up by Absolutely. It was a beautiful evening, a gorgeous setting, and a perfect proposal. When we had finished, we all headed out, leaving Alan and Taren to bask in their joy in their private piece of paradise. We loved photographing Alan and Taren’s special moments, and hope they enjoy their photos as much as we enjoyed taking them!

The romantic event planning for this proposal was taken on by the talented team over at Absolutely Proposals.
