Is there anything more romantic than proposing in New York City? The Big Apple has captured the hearts of millions around the world, so it’s no wonder the city is a popular place to pop the question. Our expert team is here to help you create a magical moment you’ll both never forget, with our ultimate guide to a memorable NYC marriage proposal.

Why NYC is the Best Place for a Marriage Proposal

No other city in the world is as famous as New York. Its dramatic skyline and iconic landmarks have served as a cinematic backdrop for great love stories throughout the last century: Carrie and Big, Harry and Sally, Holly Golightly and Paul Varjak — the list goes on! With a wide variety of places to pop the question, as well as expert vendors available throughout the city, we believe NYC is truly the best place for a marriage proposal.

Where to Propose in New York City

New York is a sprawling metropolis, filled with all sorts of vibrant streets, green parks, and instantly-recognizable landmarks. Whether you prefer your feet firmly planted on the ground in Central Park or dare to pop the question from atop the highest skyscraper, there are no shortage of unique places to propose in NYC.


For a big, movie-style moment, we love creating surprise proposals in public places like Grand Central Station, Times Square, or Top of the Rock. You simply can’t go wrong in one of the city’s famous parks like Central Park or the more modern High Line! Or perhaps you and your beloved have visited the city before. Why not choose a spot that has special meaning for just the two of you, like the little Italian place you went on your first date or the park bench where you first said, “I love you.” If you’re looking for a even more exclusivity and intimacy, consider a private rooftop overlooking the city. Our team has scouted countless locations around New York in order to hand-select the best places for our NYC proposal packages.

We’ve created custom NYC proposals and pre-arranged proposal packages that take the guesswork out of planning a dream proposal in the city.

Should I Hire a Proposal Photographer in NYC?

Sometimes a grainy iPhone selfie is just not enough!
