Brooklyn Bridge Engagement Proposals: Chris and Catherine

One of our most stunning Brooklyn Bridge engagement proposals was this weekend with Chris, who reached out to us help capture the picture-perfect moment. 

The surprise did not stop there, as the newly-engaged couple posed for a beautiful engagement portrait session after.

We also had a chance to speak with Chris, who shared with us how they met, and, inevitable, fell in love. From long distance to being together in New York City, with the skyline serving as the ultimate backdrop.

We first met through work back in 2015. We were both living and working in Canada up until October 2015, when I accepted a position in Bermuda. A couple days before shipping off to Bermuda for a 20 month work contract, we both learned that we liked each other, and so decided to give long-distance dating a shot. We’ve been together ever since.

We were initially just friends while we worked together.We got along so well and loved each other’s company because we had similar personalities and shared the same humor (dry). I knew she was the one within 3 months of dating – she’s gorgeous, patient, and above-all, very funny. It didn’t take long for me to realize she was a keeper.

We both moved to Connecticut in 2017 for really one overriding reason – our love for the city of New York and the Yankees. We spend a lot of our weekends in NYC, and our favorite spot in the entire city is Dumbo/Brooklyn Bridge Park. We find it absolutely gorgeous every time we walk this area. It was a no-brainer in my mind to choose Brooklyn Bridge Park as our proposal spot.

I knew exactly where and when to propose (i.e. Brooklyn Bridge park, our favorite spot ever, and at dusk, to capture Manhattan skyline perfectly)

I purchased the ring with Brilliant Earth.
