Wouldn’t it be great to have the opportunity to propose among the monumental columns in Rome? Well, with the help of Paparazzi Proposals, Brenton found the next best thing, New Orleans City Park. The 7th most visited urban public park in the United States, he chose the backdrop of the Romanesque, marble columns to propose to Ian. If you can’t bring your proposal to Rome, why not bring Rome to your proposal? Our sly photographer captured Ian’s in awe reaction.

4. Bourbon Street

An easy walking distance from any point in The French Quarter, Bourbon Street is known as the yearly host to the famous Mardi Gras. However, throughout most of the year, this impressive street in the heart of New Orleans, is a cultural hotspot. And with so much history, Cody wanted to add his own proposal to it. Paparazzi Proposals was there to photograph every moment and you can view the couple’s most special ones here. A cocktail-based romantic rendezvous is one of New Orleans specialty options, and Bourbon Street is the perfect spot for it. Whether you want to book a private room at Antoine’s (one of the most elegant restaurants in the country), or have an old-world glamour night with cocktails at Bombay Club, which features live piano jazz and luxuriously curtained private booths.

5. The Moonwalk

This paved promenade is one of the most romantic spots in New Orleans. Part of the riverside Woldenberg Park, it sits at the edge of the French Quarter. Take a lovely stroll on the Moonwalk, maybe after a delicious dinner at one of the nearby restaurants. There’s often street performers on hand to add an extra bit of jazz and romance to your proposal. Of course, Paparazzi Proposals can always make sure of it (and that they’ll be playing your favorite love song). Whether during a beautiful sunset or at night for an actual moon walk, this location is ideal for an intimate proposal. The wide steps that lead down to the river are also a great place to sit for some boat spotting or a picnic.
