Charlotte Phynes Garcia, Mondrian South Beach
My boyfriend and I recently booked a short weekend trip to Miami for a winter getaway. Little did I know, he was secretly planning an incredible surprise engagement in our room at the hotel. He worked with Charlie, one of the lead concierges at the Mondrian, to pick out my favorite flowers, gorgeous balloons, and tons of roses to decorate the room while we were out exploring for the day. I came back to an absolute surprise and it could not have been a more perfect day! We loved our stay and Charlie made it so special. We can't wait to come back!
