Summer Brooklyn Bridge Park Proposal

Brooklyn, New York


When Zac first reached out to me about planning his proposal to Natalie at Brooklyn Bridge Park, I was GAME. The view of the Manhattan skyline from the park is one of my favorite spots in the city, and I couldn’t imagine a more magical place to ask the love of your life to marry you.

Natalie and Zac’s love story is so sweet! Here’s how Zac describes how they first met and fell in love.

“Natalie and I went to high school together, we met because one of my best friends is her cousin. Her cousin and I would always go to her house, it was the hang out spot for us and our friends. Everyone knew that Natalie and I had a special connection and it became quite the “joke” to our family and friends that we would one day get married. We have been together for 5 years on August 4th!”

Not only did they just celebrate their five year anniversary, but for their past three anniversaries they have been in New York, which made Zac’s proposal all the more special.

Logistics were the trickiest part of this proposal — Natalie and Zac live in Ohio, so there were a lot of factors to consider given the current state of the world. Luckily, Zac often travels to New York for work, and that was the perfect decoy to get Natalie to hop in a car and make the long drive to NYC from Ohio.

But once they made it to the city, it was all downhill from there! Zac chose the perfect spot to pop the question (after I frantically texted him saying there were “6 foot social distancing” banners hung up on the railing near where he planned to do it) and the photos were absolutely magical. I am so honored to have been a part of this cross-country proposal, and wish Natalie and Zac all the best in their engagement and marriage!
