Will you marry me? Perhaps you should pop the question under Silver Lake’s Chandelier Tree to get the right response

SILVER LAKE  —  The  “Chandelier Tree,” which is illuminated with all manner of lamps that dangle from its branches, apparently has become a popular engagement spot.  On The Chandelier Tree’s Facebook page, Adam Tenenbaum, who began accessorizing  the tree outside his home with vintage and castoff lamps about seven years ago,  said that a couple became engaged under the tree earlier this month. They are the sixth couple to do so. Tenenbaum provided some details:

A young Silverlake couple got engaged under the tree!!!
The guy was adorable / romantic / thoughtful.
He came to the door & asked our permission.
He hid the ring & a note in the tree base.
Concocted an elaborate treasure hunt….of love.
….ending under the chandeliers.
& she said YES!!!
Thank god, right.
Interestingly enough, this is the 6th couple!!!!!!!!
(all successful mind you)”


  1. Echo Park 4Temporary

    What a turd.

  2. What a great story and video about a resident in our community. I’ve seen and driven past this tree for several years now and I’ve always wondered who? And why? And now I know. Thank you, Adam for such a great public display! It’s like out of a storybook.

  3. Adam has given Silver Lake a great gift for everyone to enjoy! It brings a smile to my heart every time I drive by………Thanks, Adam!

  4. Practical Parsimony


  5. There is a reason the Ivanhoe children I know who walk by this tree every day call it the giving tree……….I LOVE that this installation speaks so directly to the children.

  6. Beautiful public art. Thank you!
