The plan...Jeremy will bring Kristin and her family and cousins for a walkabout in New York City's Central Park. The goal...get her to the "Home Alone Bridge" (aka Gapstow Bridge) and do a New York City surprise proposal in Central Park by Gapstow Bridge! Always a great New York surprise proposal idea!
The reality...after some adventurous texts back and forth (pretending to catch them all to cover the fact we're texting each other)...and because there were a lot of people and they couldn't find the bridge, I told Jeremy what I was wearing, he found me, he tells his best friend where I am and they proceeded to get the group to follow them as I lead them to the bridge. Finally at the location, I pretend to be photographing random birds with my assistant (who Kristin thought was snap chatting on her phone to hide the fact she's trying to take some behind the scenes photos). At some point Jeremy tells the group the marriage proposal plan and they all pretend to be looking for something in Central Park so Jeremy can lead Kristin to the location...
The success...We do not hear what they're saying...but they both looked adorably romantic, a couple in love in Central Park. He pulls out the ring...he gets down on one knee...proposes, and she said "YES!"
Congratulations Jeremy and Kristin! I'm very happy, humbled and honored to have captured this momentous moment.
Here's to your new adventure!
The entire group in Central Park. Everyone was very happy to have witnessed the proposal!!!
