Detroit Rooftop Proposal
Brad planned the perfect Detroit rooftop proposal for his girlfriend Kalie.
A few weeks ago, Brad texted me. “It looks like it is my turn to need your help.” Without going any further, I knew what he was referring to. “No way!” I responded. “Congratulations!” Then the photo of the engagement ring came through our text thread and I almost fell over. “Gorgeous Brad. I am so happy for you.” I have known Brad for a number of years and have never seen him as at ease or as happy as when he is with Kalie. They truly complement and complete each other. When I asked him about details, he said he was thinking doing a Detroit rooftop proposal with a view of the skyline in the background. He sent me a photo of the view; it was gorgeous!
I met Brad on top of the rooftop on a windy afternoon to plan the proposal. We bounced around a few ideas and settled in on the location and approach. There was just one problem: how do I hide when it is an open and empty rooftop? Luckily, Brad had some extra construction hard hats, vests, and barrels for me to (somewhat) blend in and look like I belonged. To add to the challenge, I know Kalie too! With a clipboard in hand (to make me look official, of course), Brad drove Kalie up to the top floor of the roof and began to execute his Detroit rooftop proposal
As the sun set, we gained access to the old Joe Louis and Cobo Hall tunnel. It was the perfect spot to cozy up for some more intimate engagement pictures.
After Brad had one last surprise for Kalie – friends and family were waiting nearby at Prime and Proper, ready to celebrate the good news. I joined them for a bit, capturing toasts, laughs, hugs, and love from all of their guests.
