When Raymond told me that he wanted to set up his marriage proposal to Nancy at First Energy Stadium, I was super excited. A unique idea. Extremely hard to pull off since there has only been a grand total of one proposal in the stadium’s history. When the day arrived and I spoke with Cristina, the Catering and Premium Services Senior manager, the moment escalated. Raymond was going to propose to Nancy right on the field. This would be the first time in the history of the stadium that this has happened! Talk about pressure. I couldn’t imagine what would be going on in Raymond’s head when the moment arrived.
When that moment DID arrive, I was on the field posing as a field technician. I was inspecting the turf and trying to blend in as best I could ( I WAS the only person on the field). Cristina placed them perfectly in the predesignated spot and it was game on (pun intended 🙂 )!
Raymond pulled off this historic marriage proposal perfectly. I was so honored to be able to document it. Below is the moment and just afterward. We then did some absolutely authentic engagement pictures in downtown Cleveland.
Congratulations Ray and Nancy!!
