Engagement Proposal in a Hot Air Balloon
Definitely Worth a Facebook Status Update or a Tweet
If you are looking for a creative and uplifting way to “pop the question” then take your marriage proposal to new heights… in a hot air balloon over Michigan’s Kensington Park in Milford. Westwind Balloon Company has been part of hundreds of engagement proposals since 1981. There are few more romantic ways to propose marriage than in a hot air balloon as you are flying over the countryside.
Ballooning makes for an ideal engagement idea because it’s an adventure experience that touches couples emotionally and will make a lasting impression for years to come. All of our flights are for just two people, making it a private flight; it’s just the pilot and the lucky couple.
Chief Pilot and owner of Westwind Balloon Company Scott Lorenz says “It’s really one of the ‘coolest’ ways to get engaged. A hot air balloon ride in itself is a romantic experience for couples but then there’s this added bonus as they fly over the scenery. About 20 minutes into the flight the groom-to-be gets on one knee, pulls out the ring and pops the question, ‘Will You Marry Me?’ I’ll take a photo or shoot video of the two of them as the proposal is made. I am batting 1000% as every young lady says ‘YES;’ I guess there’s nowhere to run either!”
“Then they’ll update their status on Facebook right from the balloon, load a photo and send out a quick Tweet! It’s the ultimate confluence of a high tech announcement and world’s oldest way to fly,” says Lorenz.
A balloon flight is also a perfect anniversary celebration as a gift the couple can give to themselves. “The main reason ‘experience’ gifts are so popular is that in the end all we have are memories and the balloon ride provides a vivid and lasting memory,” adds Lorenz.
The wedding proposal balloon flight costs $695 for two people. Hot air balloon flights in the area over Kensington Park in Milford, Michigan can be purchased by calling 734-667-2098 or by visiting www.westwindcos.com/balloon Checks, Visa, MasterCard, AMEX and Discover Card are accepted.
