Jonathan and Yumin‘s wedding proposal was one-of-a-kind as Jonathan went to lengths to make sure that Yumin and their friends and relatives will have a lot to talk about in the years to come. Jonathan had many ideas running but knowing that Yumin is a person who values her privacy, he had to reluctantly trash the flash mob proposal idea and airplane proposal idea from his long list. He wanted a special date with Yumin, so he chose their 1000th anniversary day to execute the ruse – The Escape Room Proposal.
After considerable thought and sourcing for 2 whole months, Jonathan finally found an escape room organiser, Lockdown Escape at Central, who agreed to help him customise his escape room proposal plan. Jonathan’s idea was to convert the escape room into a customised treasure finding game, which included figuring out a 6 digit combination lock to the treasure (he set it up as their first-day dating anniversary date), and a new scroll message (which was Jonathan’s heart-felt love confession to Yumin). Here is the excerpt of the message written (Jonathan’s original words), “the explorer (me) took so long to find the treasure (her) and that we had come a long way, and the final thing to do was to search our pockets for the true treasure. As she excitedly searched her pockets and turn towards Jonathan with an inquisitive look, Jonathan searched his own pockets and pull out the ‘found’ proposal ring. He knelt on his knees and proposed to her in the treasure room, a ring in his hands and his confession note in hers, she said ‘yes’ and pledged their love to each other.
Thank you for engaging Boon Chye (on saxaphone), Sharon (on piano), and Regine (emcee) on the day of their wedding, we had such much fun!
Here’s to wishing the both of you a lifetime of treasured memories and happiness to come.
