CHICAGO — For the traditionalists, Thursday marked the beginning of the holiday season.

Nothing says “I love you” more than a marriage proposal.

Carlos Galvan and Vanessa Pantoja were in the city Friday from Rockford.

Vanessa thought she was going to take a helicopter ride full of beautiful views of the skyline and go to a concert. Instead, Carlos got down on one knee and proposed.

I had no idea, we are just here for a concert,” Vanessa said. “I had no idea."

Through tears and smiles, Vanessa said yes.
