World premiere: marriage proposal in space.
On February 14 Sebastian, a 35-year-old French man, will be the first man to propose to his girlfriend in space at an altitude of 30 kilometers. The space flight will be entirely filmed, from the launch to the arrival of the message of love in the stratosphere.
For 4,990 euros, the man called on the services of the French company ApoteoSurprise, the romance expert that specializes in planning spectacular marriage proposals in Paris. On Valentine's Day, the picture of the couple and the message “Vanessa, will you marry me?” will be attached to a giant helium-filled balloon and released in the sky by professionals operating in the space exploration area. The set will be supplied with the video recording equipment that will film the message and surrounding scenery during the whole flight, from the launch to the arrival in space.
After two or three hours, the message of love will arrive at an altitude of 30 kilometers, and the last footage will be shot with the wonderful blue planet in the background. The balloon will blow up, a parachute will open, and the video equipment will fall back to the earth. The footage will be recovered and montage edited, so the man can show the astounding film to his girlfriend. The lady will then become the first woman being proposed in space.
The scenario “Say I love you in Space” is the 2013 brand-new package from the catalog of 30 romantic experiences available on the website of ApoteoSurprise. The official launch of this scenario, allowing men to take the stars out of the sky for their Valentine, will be taking place on February 14.
