FATIMA + OLABISI

Chicago proposal

Fatima and Bisi were spending the day outdoors on a warm Chicago afternoon with just enough wind to keep them cool. From Millenium Park, they walked past one of the many summer festivals and got on their bikes heading north along the lakefront trail. They pedaled towards Lincoln Park, and along the way Bisi reminisced about that day they biked to that park with that perfect view of the city with a ferris wheel nearby, and suggested that they go there again. And so, they biked to Milton Lee Olive Park, docked their bikes, and enjoyed the view and their time on the grass. People around them were taking photos with the skyline and Bisi, who hardly takes any pictures, offered to take Fatima’s photo. Of course, she agreed! While he was getting her good angles and photographing a shot of Fatima admiring the city, he dropped to one knee and pulled out a little box. Fatima turned around to see the photos that he’d taken and there he was with the biggest smile. He said some sweet words and asked, “Will you marry me?”
