Every proposal is special but if your partner works in the Wedding industry, you can bet your bottom dollar it's going to have a bit of extra 'wow factor'.
So when we heard that New York designer and owner of Pantora Bridal
, Andrea Pitter had video of her proposal, which took place at the prestigious Coterie Retreat
in Barbados (this retreat is for the who's who of the Bridal Industry), we knew we had to share it!
Andrea attended the Gala Dinner at the retreat (dressed in a stunning fit and flare gown that she designed herself) and was tearing up the dance floor with internationally renowned photographer Joshua Dwain. Mid-dance, Joshua asked Andrea to turn around when she saw Peter standing at the front of the crowd with the spotlights on him. Everyone in the room started yelling at Peter to get on one knee and he joked saying to Andrea that 'I guess you can sketch your own dress'.
After she said yes, Beyonce's 'Love On Top' started playing and the party continued!
The Coterie Retreat
