Congratulations to My Proposal Story Contest Winners Kristin & Jake

largeCongratulations to our My Proposal Story Contest winners, Kristin TenBroeck and Jake Smith.  This couple’s incredible engagement story won them a free honeymoon to any Hyatt Hotel or Resort in the world from Hyatt Regency McCormick Place!

Jake and Kristin go to the movies every week.  One week, during a casual movie date, a special movie trailer began playing on screen, a preview for a movie of their story of meeting and falling in love!  Jake had put in many hours filming the trailer using friends and family and somehow got the theater to agree to play it as a real movie preview.  Afterwards, Jake proposed and both of their families sneaked into the back of the theater to congratulate them.

Watch their movie trailer with footage of Kristin’s reaction throughout:

With so many Hyatts to choose from for their free honeymoon, our first question to them had to be where are they going?  Their answer.  We’re not sure yet!  Some hotels on their list are the Bellagio in Las Vegas (through Hyatt’s Gold Passport M Life partnership) and the Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort, Spa, and Casino.

Their wedding date is set for July 4th, 2014 and what they are most looking forward to on their honeymoon is relaxing after all the hectic wedding planning.  As well as to escape to somewhere warm.  The couple is from the suburbs of Chicago, and it’s been a harsh winter here with the 3rd highest annual snowfall on record not to mention a polar vortex or two.  The couple is extremely excited about their free honeymoon and the opportunity that Hyatt provided them by sharing their incredible proposal story.
