A friend of mine on Facebook asked me to submit our “public engagement story” to iReport on CNN.com a week ago. CNN iReport is an opportunity for the CNN audience to be a part of their coverage and to help them gain a better understanding of various news topics – from urgent and compelling to features and fun. Last week, CNN iReport was collecting stories about public proposals. It sounded interesting & easy, why not?!? Since I already blogged about our proposal, I pretty much copied & pasted “my story”, attached our video (which was taken on my friend’s iPhone) & clicked submit. I was emailed by two CNN reporters immediately for additional Q&A and photos of our proposal at the Waldorf Astoria in NYC.
To my surprise, one of their associate producers emailed me a few days later to share the exciting news that our proposal photo has been featured on CNN.com!! Our photo was even featured on CNN’s homepage for a few days!! Kinda cool, right?! Our featured photo on CNN is also linked to our proposal story submission, which highlights our engagement video. It currently has over 3.6K + views!
I guess this blog post can seem pretty vain but whatever, its more of a diary entry today. I know I am going to love to look back & read all about our wedding plans & ideas when I’m old and boring…..
So, thanks for reading & following!
Our proposal photos were taken by my friend Geni Bean, Pink Owl Photography!
