Raymond was trying to find the perfect spot for his proposal in NYC. His gorgeous girlfriend is a student here in NYC and he lives in California. He didn’t want to choose one of her obvious local haunts, but rather find a special place she may not have yet discovered in her short time here in NYC. This way the spot was all their own. He had seen my video online, where I’m standing in Tudor City talking about how I help plan and photographer proposals and thought “I like where Ash is standing, how about doing it there!” So Ray and I hashed out a plan and I shot his proposal right there in my favorite secret hideout in all of NYC. I write this knowing that I might eat my words, because next thing you know everyone may be hanging out in Tudor City! That’s NYC for you. Once the word is out about a cool spot, that little corner of the universe is up for grabs! So I’ll savor this spot for now as my secret hideout, other than sharing it with awesome couples like Ray and Alexa. They are young, gourgous, and full of laughs. This winter day was BITTER COLD, but they were troopers! Love does have a warming effect!

Jeff and Kelly live in Toronto. When they visit NYC they always like to visit Bryant Park, their favorite romantic spot that stretches between 40th and 42nd st right behind the New York Public Library. Jeff knew that he and Kelly would always come back to this park as it’s a place where they’ve shared many romantic strolls and memories, so he planned to seal this place as their place forever. Jeff purchased a chair with a plaque dedicated to Kelly with the special words “Will you Marry Me”. When Jeff told me his plan over the phone I welled up with emotion. How insanely romantic?!?
They elegantly strolled around the park before Jeff told her he’d be right back. Kelly sat for a few moments wondering where Jeff had gone, and then he came back carrying a chair. She looked confused. Why on earth was Jeff carrying a chair when there were plenty of chairs to sit in all around them? He placed it on the concrete and asked Kelly to read the plaque. She bent down to read it and when she looked back at Jeff he was on his knee proposing to her!
