Chicago Proposal Ideas – Shedd Aquarium

Sure, it’s the Windy City, but Chicago is a romantic city too!

So Shawn thought long and hard about how to make his proposal creative and something that Sanna would not soon forget.

Knowing Sanna loved going to the aquarium, a place she knew he wasn’t necessarily crazy about, Shawn knew this would make for the perfect setting in which to completely surprise her with his proposal.

Choosing somewhere that has special meaning to your partner is a surefire way to make the moment you pop the question both romantic and memorable.

As he trudged along in the aquarium, Sanna definitely had NO idea of what was about to come! Before we show you their enchanting engagement moment at Chicago’s iconic Shedd Aquarium, here’s a bit of their love story…

They were first introduced by Shawn’s cousin, who just so happens to also be Sanna’s best friend, on Facebook. Now that’s what we call modern romance! From that moment on, Shawn ardently pursued Sanna, and their Facebook flirting slowly shifted to texting and talking on the phone. A month later, they went on their first date. Shawn was instantly smitten with how beautiful and charming she was. Sunna loved how smart and funny he was. The rest, as they say, is history!

After several months of dating, Sanna privately thought she had finally found “the one.” Meanwhile, Shawn had already bought the domain for their wedding website and began engagement ring shopping!

Sanna’s love of the aquarium wasn’t Shawn’s only reason for picking it as the place where he’d pop the question. He also knew it had an amazing view of downtown Chicago, which would make for the perfect backdrop for his proposal photographs, secretly taken by Paparazzi Proposals!
