Getting engaged these days is no small task. Even prom-posals are starting to get more and more extravagant. It’s important to stay true to who you are when popping the question, but it doesn’t hurt to gain a little inspiration of where to make this exciting life-changing event happen!
New York, NY
A classic through and through, you can’t go wrong with a proposal in Central Park. Compromised of nearly 1,000 acres throughout Upper Manhattan, you can find many places both secluded and public to get down on one knee. Bow Bridge is a favorite, and during the changing of the leaves in the fall, it makes for one frame-worthy experience for any happy couple.
A picturesque sunset after a day lounging on the beach or hiking the mountains is sometimes all you need to get engaged. Keep it simple with a sandy sunset proposal, or for the adventurous pair, consider Fern Grotto in Wailua River State Park. A small waterfall and hanging ferns makes this one of nature’s finest spots to pop the question.
With historic charm and old city grandeur, Savannah has many engagement worthy spots. Wormsloe Historic Site in particular is famous for its leaning, lush trees, providing the perfect arch to get engaged under. This site is simply overflowing with natural beauty. Take it up a notch and have a photographer waiting to capture this special moment.
Big Sur, CA
Incredible views along this West Coast hot spot stretch for nearly 90 miles, making Big Sur the perfect scenic backdrop for an engagement. Whether you’re gazing out at the Saint Lucia mountains or the ocean hitting rugged cliffs, anyone is sure to have their breath taken away at this location.
No matter where the engagement takes place—either somewhere sentimental or an extravagant destination—it’s all about the love put into it.
