The CBS segment producer used his media skills to pull off the ultimate engagement proposal to Rachel Jordan, his girlfriend of four years. Kornelius reached out to a blogger who worked with Rachel on a past photo shoot to help set up the special occasion. After some coordination, he paired up with photographer Myron Rogan and Signal 13 Productions to help him set up a fake blogger shoot for his girlfriend.

The couple shot their soon-to-be engagement photos on top of CitiBank's helipad with a helicopter and the City of Angels as their backdrop. As Rachel prepared for a scene for their elegant shoot, she had no clue that after she twirled and tossed red roses in the air that Kornelius would be down on one knee with a ring. After their engagement, Kornelius whisked Rachel off for a wonderful night around town.
Rachel was even more surprised when she saw our transportation for the entire night! Thank You @empirecls for providing us with first class chauffeur services on our special night! You guys went above &beyond! ✊🏾 #CadillacEscalade
