A Broadway Proposal
Last month, Alex Hamerman of Dallas, TX enlisted Go Get It! (a special events company) to help create the perfect New York setting for his marriage proposal to Gigi, his girlfriend of eight years.
Working together on the theme for two weeks, they created what Hamerman considered to be the "ultimate fantasy" with a very personal twist. Using the timeless fairytale, "The Frog Prince," as an underlying theme, they orchestrated a stage production where Hamerman asked for Gigi's hand in marriage after stepping out of a frog costume and transforming into her real-life prince on the New York stage.
"After waiting eight years, Alex knew that the pressure was on him to really knock his girlfriend off her feet," says Go Get It! Co-founder Kathryn Foreman.
The scene was set from the moment Alex and Gigi arrived at their hotel in New York. Working closely with the concierges at the Mandarin Oriental, the company arranged for the couple to be presented with two "impossible to get" tickets to the fictitious Off-Broadway show, "Finding Prince Charming." A limo transported the couple to a small Midtown theatre, where, unbeknownst to Gigi, every element of the play was pre-arranged, from the playbill to the audience members, in order to create the setting for Alex's elaborate proposal.
After her name was drawn from a hat during the audience participation portion of the play, Gigi was ushered on stage, outfitted in a princess costume and positioned in front of the frog-costumed actor. Amongst the back-drop of a candle-lit audience, the frog was revealed to be Alex who then presented her with an exquisite diamond ring. Gigi answered "YES! YES! YES!". The audience cheered and the couple went off to celebrate their real-life "happily ever after."
