Central Park Proposal

We also specialize in Central Park proposal packages and have planned many romantic surprise proposals throughout the park! Some of the most popular proposal locations in Central Park are Bow Bridge Bethesda Fountain and the rock formation overlooking the NYC skyline. There are many more locations so please click here for Central Park proposal inspiration photos.

All of our packages include the services of a dedicated Proposal Coordinator who will be on site on the proposal day. Your Proposal Coordinator will ensure that your location is available and the photographer and any other vendors are in place prior to your arrival. On the day we will be in touch via text up until the moment you arrive to pop the question. We can even discreetly guide you to your proposal location if you’d like some additional assistance.

“Christa and her team were extremely professional and made our engagement at Cop Cot in Central Park really special, and easy. Christa is very detail-oriented and ensured that our day would go as smoothly as possible while also still remaining a surprise for the bride-to-be! I’d recommend A Central Park Wedding to anyone seeking a professional and structured event. The photos included in the proposal package were incredible, and the photo shoot itself was efficient and fun! We thank Christa for making our special day unforgettable.”

“To anyone who is looking at getting engaged in New York City - Jennifer and her team is the only place you should look! Absolutely incredible experience and was soooooo easy for me (during what can be a stressful time) as she took care of all my little details and made sure everything was exactly what I asked for. I have some many wonderful things to say about Jen and her team but the only thing you need to know is you are doing yourself a disservice if you don’t choose her! Hands down the best experience ever. Thank you Jen!”
