Henna and Omar: Looks of Love Winner
Happy Valentine’s Day! We literally love the month of February – and love even more our annual Looks of Love contest! Thanks so much to all of the amazing fans who helped us pick our 2012 Looks of Love Winner!!! We received a flood of entries and it was so much fun to read all of the amazing love stories. It was a true task to narrow our favorites to 10 and loved engaging our fans to pick the winner! Henna and Omar are such an adorable couple and their engagement photos captured by Greg Blomberg Photography are amazing!! This duo had been friends for years and frequently hung out together at Starbucks sharing one of Omar’s favorites drinks – a green tea latte. Secretly, Henna never cared for the drink but would act like she enjoyed them because Omar was such a fan! After years of friendship, lattes and eventually falling in love, one thing was certain — Omar was really going to have to work his magic to pull off a surprise proposal. He pulled it off without a hitch with the help of Henna’s friends and family. One spring night, Henna was invited to a friend’s birthday party. She decide to ride with another friend to the party who also had plans to pick up a friend that Henna had never met. They ended up at the beautiful Celestial Park in Addison. As soon as they arrived, Henna’s friend told her she needed to run to the restroom but asked Henna to go just up the stairs to find her friend that she was supposed to pick up before the party. Henna walked up the staircase and into a romantic center stage perfectly-planned proposal! In the middle of the park, she came upon amazing décor with florals in the shape of a heart and before she almost dismissed it all (thinking it must have been for a wedding that had occurred earlier in the day), she spotted Omar. There, in the middle of Celestial Park, Omar got down on one knee and popped the all-important question! As soon as Henna said yes, her entire family appeared who were all in on the plan. We’re so excited for Henna and Omar and can’t wait to send them on a romantic dinner date on us! Thanks to all of the amazing couples who entered the contest and shared their love stories with us! Cheers!
