Marriage Proposals by Mike

Plan B

Posted on June 30, 2014 at 1:25 PM

I would imagine that for most people when they are thinking about their marriage proposal in an outdoor setting and how it's going to go they are probably imagining a beautiful sunrise or sunset, flowers in bloom, lush green lawns, the New York City skyline, etc.  Picturing a cloudy or rainy day doesn't often figure in prominently into the scene.  However mother nature has a way of sometimes altering the plans.  So when you've arrived at your ideal location it's good and prudent to think about an alternate location as well.... just in case the gods and the skies are not shining upon you. I had this happen to a couple recently.  The proposal was set to happen around noon and it was pouring rain all morning.  Thankfully the couple was coming to Bethesda Fountain just off the 72nd St. transverse in Central Park.  The safety net in this case was the atrium between the stairs directly below the street.  It provides great cover and the photographer can capture images of Central Park.  This of course is reason #435 why we like Central Park.  Other locations don't offer this kind of plan B.  This doesn't mean it can't work.  Think John Cusack in "Say Anything", standing out in the rain boombox hoisted overhead blasting "In Your Eyes".  The rain ultimately stopped and the proposal proceeded forward as planned.  As you get to within a week of the big event take a gander at the local weather for a little guidance.  Let me know if I can help in any way.  Perhaps the Winter Garden in the World Financial Center will lend some cover. Wishing you lots of love and happy engagements.  Mike
