Bob’s surprise proposal to Zab was both a surprise for her and everyone else they were with that day.
Men normally do marriage proposals as a surprise to their lady-love. It’s just a matter of how they execute the surprise that varies from one couple to another.
Bob & Zab are the boyfriend-girlfriend duo behind Bob & Zab Wedding & Lifestyle Photography — well, now they’re a fiancée-fiance duo. So one would wonder how a photographer who has probably shot so many couple prenups, weddings or even proposals mount his own proposal.
Surely, when you know someone who works in the wedding industry, you can expect them to get “things” done very creatively. Now, a spoken word proposal is definitely one of these “things”.
Eman, the owner of Pixelfish Concept PH, wanted to do out something different for his proposal. So he decided to do it through something he’s always wanted to try, Spoken Word. But he never really had the perfect place in mind for his plan. Then about a month before the proposal, Yvette expressed that she wanted to experience the feeling of camping since she never got to experience it as a child. Eman saw this as a perfect opportunity and decided to indulge her. She told her to gather all their friends and invite them for a camping trip for his birthday. Of course, Yvette was very excited to do all the planning. Imagine that, he even got her to plan the trip for his proposal without her knowing!
