New York in the spring is just magic. Take this stunning engagement session from Rebecca Yale Photography as prime example. From the petal covered park to the sweet kisses Lindsay and Steven share, we think it’s safe to say that they basically had the best engagement session ever. See it all in The Vault!
From Rebecca Yale Photography…Lindsay and Steven got engaged in a perfect New York moment when Steven surprised Lindsay at Bowtie Cinemas in Chelsea with a movie that ended in his proposal and their friends surprising them in the theater. The New York based couple decided to take photographs in Central Park catching the perfect magical moment when the city is coated in pink petals and is at its most photogenic! The bride kept the styling classic in a white dress and the groom in a blue blazer to compliment the beautiful blossoms and then changing into a more casual outfit for a stroll by Bethesda Fountain.
From the Bride-to-be…. About four years ago, my roommate Jessie and I were riding up in our elevator when a few guys happened to exit on our floor. We turned to enter our apartment and they continued to the one right next door. We later heard music blaring from their apartment, and naturally intrigued, I said to Jessie, “We should crash their party”… and so we did!
We knocked on our neighbor’s door and I said, “If you guys are going to blast loud music, you should really invite your neighbors.” We were immediately greeted with smiles and I quickly made eye contact with Steven from across the room. After about ten minutes of being there, he came up to me and said “do you crash parties often?” I have been smitten ever since.
Steven and I had plans to see the Hunger Games movie opening weekend with two of our friends (I am a fanatic). When we arrived at the movie theater, the usher encouraged us to wait after the movie was over because they were showing special deleted scenes – we were pumped!
After the movie was over and the credits started to roll, people started the exiting the theater but there was no way I was going to miss the deleted scenes! The lights dimmed, and all of a sudden, Steven was on the screen. For the next three minutes, I watched as Steven, our friends, and families lip synced to our favorite song- “Say Hey (I Love You)” by Michael Franti & Spearhead. I watched as he danced and played air guitar in front of our most memorable New York spots – from the building where we first met to our first date spot at Alta.
After the video was over, the lights turned back on and everyone in the theater stood up. To my surprise, it was all of our friends and family, who had been there the whole time! I was in a state of shock. Steven got down on one knee and proposed. The best part is, we have the whole proposal on video to share with our loved ones for years to come.
