MunaProposals: Nicole and Kyle’s Surprise Proposal at the Coterie Retreat in NOLA

We're back for another series of MunaProposals! This proposal is extra sweet because the bride-to-be happens to be our very own Director of Sales and Marketing.  All of us at the MunaOffice were in on Kyle's plans to surprise her at the Coterie Retreat.  We even involved her in the planning process, having her think she was booking Eric Roberson for one of the networking parties, when he was really there to aid in Kyle's surprise proposal!  We are counting down the days to her "Munaluchi Wedding" happening this year on New Year's Eve.  Read their proposal story below.


Names:  Nicole McKenzie + Kyle Ward (@l_nicole_munaluchibride @kward86504)
Proposal Location:  New Orleans, Louisiana at the Coterie Retreat (Munaluchi's annual wedding industry conference!)
Proposal Date: Tuesday, December 6, 2016

How did you meet?

Kyle and I met online ( It was my first time ever meeting someone online and my girlfriend kept telling me it's a great place to really meet nice people. So Kyle saw my profile, sent me a message and asked me if I would like to meet him for dinner. I agreed and from there we have been together ever since.

Tell us your proposal story:

Well to my surprise, Kyle decided to proposed to me at my annual White Party in New Orleans with my company MunaLuchi Bride. He first asked my two children Maiyah, age 11 and Joshua, age 8 for their permission to marry me. Next Kyle involved the owners, Jackie and Chike Nwobu to help with his surprise proposal. It was perfect. He involved R&B singer, Eric Roberson, who is also our neighbor, to perform at our White Party. As Eric performed the song, Do The Same For Me, he stepped back and Kyle slid onto the stage and from there it was nothing but screams! Yes, me screaming, screaming and more screaming! I was proposed to in front of the entire White party that consisted of over 100 Coterie wedding professionals from around the world.  It was truly a dream come true and a night I will never forget.

Wedding plans:

1. Wedding Date - 12/31/17 New Years Eve
2. Wedding location - Atlanta, GA

"I'm am so blessed that God has placed you in my life, along with Maiyah and Joshua's life. Because of you, I believe in love again and I look forward to spending the rest of my life with my best friend."

 Happy Planning!
