“As I began to think about how I would ask Kim to marry me, I realized that I had no idea of how to create a truly special event that we would remember forever. I thought about a nice dinner, perhaps a limo ride. But that had all been done before. I briefly thought about trying to propose while we would be on a business trip in Washington, DC, but because of my job, I really didn’t have the time to set up something like that.
Enter Mike Bloomberg. I contacted him after seeing his website and we began to brainstorm about how to create a special moment that Kim and I would always remember. I mentioned the DC idea and possibly proposing in the room that houses the Hope Diamond. He took that idea and ran with it. Before I could turn around, Mike had researched the museum, found a great restaurant for dinner to follow the proposal, spoken with the hotel regarding some personalized attention we needed to top the night off and he also was able to recommend a couple of great gift ideas for that evening that would create even more special memories.
At that point, I knew that Mike and I were creating the perfect engagement and that Kim would definitely be surprised and impressed. Everything went off without a hitch and Kim was surprised and just glowing about all the attention to detail that made the day special. I never hesitated in telling Kim about all of the work that Mike had done to pull off the special day. She was impressed that a) I could admit that I needed help, b) I wanted to make the event so memorable, and c) that Mike did what he did.
Thanks, Mike, for all of your hard work. You are not only great at what you’ve chosen to do career-wise, but I consider you to be a great friend.
“How does that joke go? “I don’t need a husband, I need a wife.” Well, Mike Bloomberg may not be ‘the wife’ but he sure has the forward thinking and romantical (my own word) ideas that I don’t even think a woman could come up with!
A man that seeks help, is a man to me. My fiancé, Joel Fox, recognizes that memories and milestones are important. He also recognizes that his time is valuable and in order to arrange one of our very first milestones – our engagement – he knew he would need some help. There are details to a proposal, but there are certain ‘personal touches’ that are imperative. There is intricate planning, thought and behind the scenes.
Enter – MIKE BLOOMBERG. A friend through and through, more so – a plethora of ideas and suggestions. Not to mention the number of contacts at his disposal. Two brains are better than one (and let’s face it, ladies, our men our brilliant, but at times – a little help never hurts, right??).
And where do I begin? (sigh) I just don’t know – EVERY minute was well-thought and very personal. Maybe there are some guys that would be ashamed or embarrassed to utilize a service such as Mike Bloomberg’s. And that’s ok. I’ll tell you one thing though – the only guys I know that are embarrassed now are the one’s that hear about my engagement.
I want to hear of one that tops my Joel’s. And we have Mike to thank.
My only question – who’s going to plan Mike’s proposal?
