Part 1: Proposal & Planning

Williamsburg, Brooklyn attracts a creative crowd. On any given sun-filled day, the neighborhood’s McCarren Park is sprawling with people relaxing on blankets, picnicking, and discreetly drinking wine out of red solo cups. If you are an artist, the chances of meeting another artist are pretty good. But what are the chances that the other art-minded person is your soul mate? Kate looks back, “That date is so memorable for the both of us and brings back a feeling that is unexplainable. We definitely were in a love spell, and the entire day was surreal, fascinating, and full of laughter.”

Sophia was enjoying drinks with friends on a Thursday evening. After catching up over a few rounds, she stepped away from the group to sit down and check the time on her phone. Her concern about the late hour and going to work in the morning must have been apparent because just seconds later a complete stranger approached and said, “Hey there! Why do you look so bored?” After introducing himself as Sam, he offered to buy Sophia a drink and introduce her to his friends. Once they got to the table, Sophia turned to Sam laughing and said, “Actually… these are all MY friends!”

Part 1: Engagement & Planning

When the time came to propose to Madalyn, Jon made sure the life changing moment would exceed her greatest expectations. Knowing that she wanted to visit Beacon, NY, Jon planned an end-of-summer trip to the picturesque upstate city. Their itinerary started with a scenic Saturday morning hike up Mount Beacon. It was suppose to be a relaxing start to the day, but Jon’s pace suggested otherwise. Madalyn remembers, “He was practically racing up the mountain!”
