Antonio told me that Sandra is a total technology junkie so I planned a proposal that was sure to impress her. In a private room at a luxurious Manhattan hotel Antonio had three flat screen televisions displayed. When Sandra arrived and pushed the green button on the remote that controlled the screens, personal photos followed by a message that read, “Will you marry me?” appeared. After she said yes the fun-loving couple was all smiles despite the rain while they took photos in Central Park. Congratulations Antonio and Sandra!
Thanks to Zlatko Batistich for the amazing photos.
Documenting your marriage proposal is one of the most important “Do’s” when it comes to popping the question. Only a photo taken in the moment can truly capture all the emotions and reactions brought on by a proposal. These photos are irreplaceable and provide you with a way to re-live this happy moment for the rest of your lives and share it with friends and family! You can also choose to do a portrait session immediately after the “yes” that can double as your engagement photo session. This gives you the best of both worlds – emotional keepsake photos and fun, posed shots to use for save the dates or holiday cards. With photos like these, who wouldn’t want a photographer or videographer to capture the moment?

On a rainy spring afternoon, Jenni and Phillip set off on a romantic stroll through Central Park. Heading east towards the Metropolitan Museum of Art, they decided to cut through the Shakespeare Garden to admire the flowers. While winding through the garden, they “discovered” a gorgeous wooden box, hand-carved with their names, lying in their path. That was when Phillip got down on one knee.
An intimate ensemble of singers and musicians appeared and begin to play Jenni’s favorite U2 song, “All I Want is You.” Jenni was completely surprised! Through happy tears, she said yes!
Then, Phillip showed her the box. The outside had a loving note for her, as well as a reference to the “Love is Patient” quote from the bible. When Jenni opened the box, she found that it was filled with packets of seeds. Around each packet was a band that held a reason why Phillip loved her. It was a perfect rainy day in Central Park for these two lovebirds! Congratulations Phillip and Jenni!

Ange wanted to propose to his princess, Laurie. I drew inspiration from the famed Rockefeller Family, the closest thing to American royalty. As legend has it, one of the most elaborate Rockefeller parties involved each guest receiving a small silver trowel upon arrival. At the center of the dinner table was a long, low vase shaped like a trough, filled with sand. Each guest used their trowel to dig into the sand and find their gift – a perfectly cut ruby, emerald or diamond.
We began Laurie’s princess marriage proposal with a shopping spree at Bergdorf’s. Upon returning to their suite, Laurie was surprised by a professional hair & makeup artist – all with the decoy of it being part of their preparation for a fancy evening out. They made their way up to the penthouse and and saw a glass trough filled with crystals: inside she discovered a tiara, Queen Mary Louboutin heels and finally, her ring! Tears of joy accompanied Laurie’s “Yes!” and an incredible dinner at Le Cirque followed. Thanks to Maggie Harkov for the incredible photos.

Our wonderful proposal planning week continues with a feature on the oh-so-chic Lela New York! Maria & her team create couture invitations that any bride would die for, not to mention a wonderfully inspiring blog filled with tons of ideas (and Maria is a recent bride herself!). Looks like the video of Nicole & Edward’s proposal is going viral!
It’s prime proposal season…who do you know that is about to pop the question?
Pull up a chair and some popcorn, here are the amazing images from Edward & Nicole’s engagement in Central Park! This romantic proposal started with a serenade of over 15 singers and ended with a picture perfect picnic from Chef Ashton Keefe. Thanks to Mariann from Blue Daisy for capturing the exuberance and true love of this adorable couple.
After Nicole said YES, the couple enjoyed a mini engagement photo shoot on the grounds of Belvedere Castle and scrumptious picnic complete with champagne, a spread of gourmet cheeses, prosciutto-wrapped asparagus, mediterranean chicken salad with pepper water crackers, fresh whole strawberries and chocolates from Jacques Torres…all while watching the outdoor Philharmonic concert.

We designed Edward’s proposal around the song “I Got You Babe,” a tune that holds special meaning for the couple. It involved over 15 singers, red long-stemmed roses and an old-fashioned serenade by Edward. Afterwards the couple enjoyed the best seats in the house for the New York Philharmonic concert and a gourmet picnic by Chef Ashton Keefe. Special thanks to Motoko from Love In Progress and her team who created this spectacular video. Stay tuned for the still photos from Mariann from Blue Daisy!
