Jay and KT, pilot and flight attendant, met in the air and have been on cloud nine ever since! How does a pilot propose? With paper planes, of course!
After treating KT to a surprise shopping trip to find the perfect dress, a delicious lunch with a friend, and hair and makeup, Jay had her meet him at a restaurant with a view! When KT walked into the room, she was greeted by a romantic pathway of rose petals and candles. At the end, Jay was waiting for her with many paper airplanes, as well as a diamond!
After reading each of the love notes on the paper planes, Jay dropped to one knee and proposed! After receiving a “YES!”, these lovebirds enjoyed a private dinner for two overlooking Columbus Circle.
Congratulations KT and Jay and a big thank you to Mikkel Paige Photography for the amazing photos!
Iain and Jane’s proposal took place on a breezy autumn afternoon in Manhattan. The couple flew in from the UK on what Jane thought was just another (amazing) vacation. Little did she know, Iain had plans to make the trip their most memorable one ever! That day, the couple was scheduled to tour the parks of NYC. The final stop was to be Bryant Park where the couple had plans to get dinner after their long day of touring. Full disclosure: Iain’s last name is also “Bryant” and he planned to use the park to his full advantage! When the couple arrived, our team was already covertly in place, posing as the maitre d’, ready to whisk the couple up to the rooftop of the Bryant Park Grill where Jane would get a “better view” of the park. As the couple made their way to the edge of the rooftop, Jane looked down to see an enormous banner that read “Jane, Please become a Bryant. Will you marry me?”. A band, that had been posing at restaurant, patrons, rose and began to sing the couple’s special song as Iain got down on one knee to pop the question. Needless to say, the bride-to-be accepted Iain’s proposal and they celebrated their engagement with a private lunch at the Grill.
Congratulations to Iain & Jane!

Travis and Tamara’s proposal was a beautiful family affair. Tamara’s father lives in Puerto Rico and she had not seen him a while so Travis knew he wanted to include him in this special moment. Tamara thought that they were simply in New York City for a special night out. They checked into their hotel and once they were settled in their room, they received a surprise phone call from the concierge. They were invited to a “special AMEX cocktail hour” in the hotel’s rooftop venue, a stunning room with amazing views of the NYC skyline. When the elevator door opened, Tamara was stunned to see the room filled with lush florals in her favorite color, purple, and a band playing the couple’s special song. Travis got down on one knee and proposed and Tamara responded with a resounding “yes”! But, the surprises for Tamara were not over yet! Tamara was overwhelmed with emotion when her family and adorable young son ran out to greet newly engaged couple and congratulate them! It was especially emotional as Tamara had not seen her father in some time. The family then enjoyed a private dinner in the space at a table covered in love poems chosen by Travis to celebrate their relationship.
Congratulations to Travis & Tamara!

Sunil’s proposal was one of the most unique and fun ones we have planned! Reema thought that she was on her way to a salsa class with a friend that she purchased on Groupon. We even had a fake certificate created to make sure to sell the surprise! When she arrived at the hotel, signs pointed her to the rooftop space where her “salsa class” was being held. When the elevator doors opened, Reema was greeted with the surprise of her life! Sunil had giant boards hand-painted to represent special moments in their relationship. The first panel she saw when she entered the room featured the couple’s Match.com profiles which was how they met. As each of the boards was pulled away, Reema got to walk through the history of their relationship. When the final board was pulled away, Sunil was standing at the end, (gorgeous) ring in hand, ready to propose!
Congratulations to Sunil & Reema!

Abe knew that he wanted to incorporate Vegas into his proposal to Nellie. The two of them absolutely loved vacationing there and if Abe couldn’t bring Nellie to Vegas, he was going to bring Vegas to NYC! Nellie had no idea what was in store for her the night that Abe invited her to a “work party” on the rooftop of a luxurious NYC hotel. When the elevator doors opened, Nellie found herself in a room transformed into a Vegas casino! Abe walked Nellie to a custom craps table with “Will You Marry Me” written on it and a deck of cards listing all of the reasons he loves her. Abe then got down on one knee and popped the question! After he got the “yes” confetti cannons went off and the couples friends ran in to join them for a casino-themed party!
Congratulations to Abe & Nellie!

Going to see a musical on Broadway in New York City is always exciting – but even more so for our couple, Cynthia and Humberto! Cynthia started off the day in NYC thinking that Humberto was simply taking her on a city tour that included a “memory scrapbook”. At every New York City attraction they visited, they took a Polaroid picture to remember their trip by. Cynthia was excited that Humberto was taking her to see Wicked The Musical after their tour, but she had no idea what was actually in store! The couple enjoyed the show tremendously and were then offered a chance to tour the backstage area. As Cynthia and Humberto walked across the stage where the show had just taken place, Humberto got down on one knee and proposed! Cynthia said “Yes!” and the couple got their fairy tale ending!
Congratulations to Cynthia and Humberto!

What could be more exciting, mysterious and romantic than a James Bond movie? Sunil and Shahira’s James Bond inspired marriage proposal. Shahira was treated to a relaxing spa day as a decoy for her ultimate surprise later that night. When she arrived back to her hotel room, Sunil had a beautiful dress draped on the bed with a top secret mission letter next to it. Her mission; to put on the dress, get her hair and makeup done and meet her driver downstairs. Her driver took her to a secret location where she was handed a second top secret mission letter. She headed inside as instructed and ordered a martini, shaken not stirred. After ordering her drink, all of the other people in the room froze and a curtain in the middle of the room opened. Sunil was standing at the end of the red carpet on the other side of the curtain. As Shahira walked to him, the people started to sing a special song for them. At the end of the song, Sunil proposed and Shahira said YES! After this super secret proposal, the two headed to a romantic dinner to celebrate their new engagement. Congratulations Sunil and Shahira!
