Romance awaits at the Langham Huntington Hotel.

You’re getting married! At least you hope you are. This might be a good time to increase your chances of a “yes” by enlisting the services of a friend.

The Langham Huntington Hotel is offering a $100,000 marriage proposal package throughout the year as a part of its 100th year anniversary celebration.

This “Proposal of the Century” will take place at the historic Rose Bowl Stadium, where the couple will be serenaded by the 40-piece Pasadena Symphony Orchestra.

A personal “Marry Me” message or a photo collage of the couple will be displayed on the Rose Bowl video message board, and up to 40 friends and family members of the couple may be invited to the Rose Bowl to witness the proposal.

It gets better. The once-in-a lifetime package will also include a contemporary, custom-designed $30,000 diamond engagement ring created by Single Stone, as well as a professional engagement photographer and videographer to document the magical event.

The couple will also be provided with a two-night stay at the hotel’s 3,200-foot-square Tournament of Roses Presidential Suite. They will be given in-suite VIP amenities including a bottle of Louis Roederer Cristal Rose Brut Millesime Champagne, 100 long-stemmed roses from Passion Growers, chocolate-covered strawberries, a pair of monogrammed Langham bathrobes and fresh rose petals sprinkled throughout the suite.

Also included in the package is a four-course dining experience, provided by The Royce Wood-Fired Steakhouse, presented either in-room or in the restaurant’s exclusive Red Wine Room. Upon awakening, there is also a daily breakfast for two in-room or at The Terrace.

Still nervous?  A Langham engagement coordinator will be available to assist in planning the whole event—from the gala marriage proposal to the entire romantic getaway.

The rest is up to you.

The Langham Huntington is at 1401 South Oak Knoll Avenue, Pasadena. (626) 568 3900.
