Engagement Proposal Ideas in Oheka Castle, Long Island NY

How We Met

Bryana and I first met at our old job. She was a new hire and I’ll never forget her walking past me and saying hello for the first time. It was a few months before we formally met. Timing is everything. A week before she quit she had a coworker reach out to me letting me know she was interested. I knew immediately it was her and the rest is history.

Bryana and Joe's Engagement in Oheka Castle, Long Island NY

We planned a getaway to Oheka Castle in Long Island for my fiancé’s birthday weekend. We have a major telepathic connection to where I can’t hide a frown from her. I chalked my nervous energy she was vibing up to a birthday surprise, which was also true. I called ahead the previous month and had our room upgraded for the big day. I pulled a friendly valet (Jonathan) aside and told him my plan. I pretended we were getting a few nice pictures taken outside by the castle gardens. As we were posing I pulled out the ring and dropped to my knee. Jonathan captured the whole event on video. We couldn’t be more grateful. PS I cried more than she did

Special Thanks

Jonathon
Jonathon was our valet/ informal photographer at the castle. I told him my plan and he was more than accommodating. I'm so grateful he went out of his way to make my plan go perfectly.

The entire hotel staff was accommodating. They sent up complimentary champagne and over all made us feel like we were in a dream
