Wedding Proposal Ideas in Central Park

How We Met

We met about 2 1/2 years ago out enjoying what we love, soccer. We met coaching at the same college.

How He Asked

My nana got me a ticket to come visit in New York as a graduation gift. We drove up to see his family and then flew up to NY. I have visited many times but have never been to Central Park or ever taken anyone with me. There was one place I wanted to go to in the park called Bow Bridge. I had seen many pictures of this place and thought it was really pretty. We walk around with my Nana, Aunt, Uncle, two cousins, and one of their girlfriends.

Engagement Proposal Ideas in Central Park

We finally find it! There’s a musician playing and we take a picture on the bridge. Once we get to the other side we take another picture and then he turns and gets one knee and pulls the ring out of his pocket. Of course, I cried. And they had my parents and sister on FaceTime back in Oklahoma! (It was also my parents’ wedding anniversary) Couldn’t be happier!! Let the planning begin!
