WEDDING & MARRIAGE PROPOSAL MOMENTS FROM A TOP NEW YORK CITY PLANNER

The Proposal Planner: Anna & Mark

We planned Mark & Anna’s proposal in the Caribbean paradise of Turks & Caicos. Although they had rented a car for their weeklong vacation, we hired a taxi driver to take them to dinner the night of the proposal so they could enjoy their wine! The driver acted as a tour guide and showed the couple around the island on their way to dinner. When the driver stopped at a private beach and suggested the couple get out and take a walk, they agreed. Once on the sand, Mark handed Anna a pair of pink flip flops he had recently given her as a birthday present. They had the couple’s initials etched on the bottoms so that they made imprints on the sand. When they got down to the water, Mark got down on one knee and asked Anna to spend the rest of her life with him – and she said YES! When he stood back up, Anna noticed that the blue sandals he had put on also left imprints in the sand: imprints that said “Marry Me”! The couple then had pictures taken (by their driver aka a professional photographer posing as a driver)  while the sun set over the water and they filled small jars with sand from the beach to remember the moment forever.

We are so excited to have Anna & Mark’s proposal featured on Your Engagement 101! Check out the post here.

Congratulations Anna & Mark!

The Proposal Planner: Sunil and Shahira

Posted by Sarah PeaseAug 04, 2014

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!

The Proposal Planner: Sandra and Antonio

Posted by Sarah PeaseMay 12, 2014

Sandra had no idea what was coming when Antonio surprised her with a tech savvy marriage proposal in New York City.  Sandra’s love for technology was the inspiration for the multimedia presentation Antonio used to pop the question.  In a hotel room overlooking Central Park three large TV monitors were wired to display a slideshow of the couples relationship.  When Sandra walked in the room she was overwhelmed by the display, Antonio then handed her a large control to start the multimedia slideshow.  The final slide displayed the message “Will You Marry Me”.  There in the intimate hotel room Antonio presented his ring and Sandra said yes!  The couple celebrated their engagement with a romantic photo shoot in central park.  Congratulations Sandra and Antonio.

The Proposal Planner: Jaison and Ann

Posted by Sarah PeaseMay 05, 2014

We were so thrilled to help Jaison plan the perfect marriage proposal for this girlfriend Ann.  Jaison wanted his proposal to be a complete surprise.  Being in a long distance relationship, Ann didn’t even know Jaison was going to be in town.  Little did she know Jaison wasn’t the only surprise of the night.  When she arrived for dinner with friends the hostess lead Ann to a private room.  She was completely blown away to see not only her friends and family but Jaison standing in the middle of the room!  As soon as she entered the room a pianist started playing and Jaison began singing “I Can’t Help Falling In Love” by Elvis.  After his serenade Jaison dropped to one knee and proposed to Ann, she said yes!  The newly engaged couple celebrated the night with a party for friends and family.  Congratulations Jaison and Ann!

The Proposal Planner: George and Christine

Posted by Sarah PeaseApr 28, 2014

George and his girlfriend Christine’s love of wine was the inspiration for their Italian style marriage proposal.  The proposal started to take shape when George gave Christine a private wine tasting for Christmas.  Unknown to Christine, this wine tasting would be completely orchestrated by our proposal team.  The day of the proposal the couple arrived for their private wine tasting.  George chose a Bordeaux theme for the tasting because of an upcoming trip the couple has planned to Bordeaux, Italy.  As the tasting came to an end the Sommelier asked George and Christine to take an audio quiz on the wines they learned about.  Instead of a quiz an original song that George wrote with a professional songwriter began to play.  When the song came to an end George dropped to one knee and proposed to Christine.  The couple celebrated their engagement with a private cooking lesson where they learned how to make an authentic Italian dessert.  Congratulations George and Christine!

The Proposal Planner: Bo and Kelcie

Posted by Sarah PeaseMar 17, 2014

Kelcie’s love of fashion was the centerpiece for her one of a kind marriage proposal in New York City. This amazing day all started with a shopping tour of New York City’s famous SoHo neighborhood.  The couple then took a private car across the river to the Brooklyn Museum where they enjoyed a private tour of the Gaultier fashion exhibit.  Little did Kelcie know that’s as they were making their way through the exhibit, our proposal team was transforming the foyer into a completely custom proposal spot.  As they came to the end of the exhibit a table was now displayed with 8 pairs of shoes, one pair for each year of their relationship. Bo led Kelcie down the line of shoes, revealing the highlights of their relationship on the inside of each shoebox. A final pair of shoes displayed the message “Marry Me” on the bottom.  Bo proposed and Kelcie said yes! We are thrilled to have our couples wonderful proposal featured on How He Asked! Check out the post here. Congratulations Bo and Kelcie!

The Proposal Planner: Chris and Petra

Posted by Sarah PeaseMar 10, 2014

Chris put his total heart and soul into this amazing proposal. He wanted to make it clear to Petra how much he adored her and how lucky he was to be with her. Thus Lucky in Love was born and became the title to this one of kind engagement. From the very beginning, a plan was set up to completely catch Petra off guard. She thought that she and Chris would be meeting with some friends from overseas for a birthday, but instead she was lead into an empty Penthouse suite with a spectacular view overlooking the city. It was flawlessly decorated and just for her. When they entered the room a huge wall mural displayed pictures of the couple. A guitarist sat in the corner and played Journey’s “When A Man Loves A Woman”, and the lyrics were also printed on the beautiful white runner that was laid on the floor. As the two of them walked the runner they found themselves standing under a floral arch where miniature horseshoes hung from, and all had a reason written up by Chris of why he knows he is lucky to have her. After reading every single one, Chris got down on one knee and pulled out the ring which he perfectly disguised in a Happy Birthday gift bag. The night was far from over at that point. Just as Petra was calling her friends and family to share the good news, they all appeared after waiting so patiently in the lobby, and everyone enjoyed a wonderful evening complete with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres! Congratulations Chris and Petra!

The Proposal Planner: Paul and Azalea

Posted by Sarah PeaseFeb 21, 2014

Paul made sure that Azalea was treated to an unforgettable proposal that truly represented her as an Artist, and her love and passion for painting. The evening all started when the couple happened to come across a sign for an Open House Community Art Class.  After agreeing to Paul’s suggestion that they should partake in it, Azalea and Paul joined the class that was staged all for her. About 15 minutes into the class, an acoustic guitar in the distance starting playing the beautiful melody to Trains “Marry Me”. One by one fellow students from the class started singing, until finally the whole class was! Azalea, humming along with the tune, still was completely unaware of what was going on or what was about to come. The group of singers then led Paul and Azalea into another room where the guitarist could be found, and that is where the magical moment unfolded. As Azalea came into the room a pianist started to play, and she was faced with a gorgeous display containing paint cans, flowers, paint brushes, and of course a mural of the city with “Will You Marry Me?” painted across. Azalea was still in shock as Paul dropped to one knee and presented her with the ring! After receiving a ‘Yes’ the group of singers broke out into a celebratory group dance and Paul and Azalea shared a wonderful champagne toast! Congratulations Paul and Azalea!
