Pasadena Hotel Offers 'Kim And Kanye' Proposal Experience For $100,000
If you were inspired by the way that Kanye ask Kim to "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!" at AT&T Park in San Francisco, we've got a package deal for you.
The Langham Huntington in Pasadena is offering a "Proposal of The Century" deal for those 1 percenters who don't mind parting with $100,000 before they've even started to plan for the eventual wedding. The package includes the chance to pop the question at The Rose Bowl Stadium in front of 40 of your nearest and dearest while the Pasadena Symphony Orchestra serenades your beloved. You get a custom-designed engagement ring, an engagement coordinator and of course a stay at the Langham with plenty of over-the-top perks that we're sure are de rigueur in certain high-flying circles.
On the one hand, this seems like a pretty great bargain considering that Kanye probably dropped $200,000 just to rent out the chilly Bay Area stadium. On the other hand, ugh, is this really our new cultural benchmark?
The Langham Huntington is proudly embracing the Kimye phenom: spokesperson Susan Williger told CBS Los Angeles, "If you want to recreate that 'Kim and Kanye' proposal experience, we can certainly make it happen."
If you were truly moved by the Kimye engagement, at least do yourself the favor of disinviting obnoxious hangers-on, general douchebags or criminal creeps like Joe Francis.
