As Time Goes By – The Wedding Proposal

I get a call from a clearly handsome man from Mexico City, “I’m proposing in a few days to the most wonderful woman. I need your help.” Love stories are the sweetest and theirs is no exception. He did everything to make sure she knew how much he cared. Exhibits A, B, C and D below. [The ring was too big to fit on this screen].

He orchestrated not one, but two rainbows within reach at The Tides South Beach Hotel Penthouse Rooftop.

She was lured onto the rooftop by the most perfect rendition of their special song, “As Time Goes By,” performed by esteemed fellows from the New World Symphony.

Stunning red nosegay bouquets from Karla Conceptual Events lined a pathway to the petal filled area where he would propose.

That would have been more than enough for many, but no, one last surprise. He transformed part of the Penthouse into a candlelit private dining room and the food was oh. so. good. (it is part of my job to sample everything).

She said yes and I smiled.

The Dream Lives On

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality…. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. ~Martin Luther King, Jr.

While walking in the streets of NYC in August 2011, these two little girls stopped in front of me and embraced. Unconditional love. I smiled.
