New York Marriage Proposal Ideas: Rockefeller Ice Skating Proposal

After reviewing several New York marriage proposal ideas, Jerome had his heart set on a holiday engagement!  So he worked with Paparazzi Proposals to plan the perfect Rockefeller Ice Skating marriage proposal, and to discreetly capture it with secret proposal photography!

She thought they were just going for a fun and festive ice skating date in Rockefeller Center, and was completely surprised when after skating around the rink a few times, he slowed to a stop in front of the Rockefeller tree, took a knee, and proposed!   With a small crowd of friendly onlookers cheering them on, she said, “Yes!” Watch their incredible proposal unfold by viewing their full proposal slideshow.

How They Met:

New York City Proposal Ideas Jerome - 21In the summer of 2011, Jerome and his special someone were both attending a career development workshop for postgraduates in Trinidad, when they caught each other’s eye.  Jerome introduced himself, and the pair spent the rest of the workshop just talking with each other. Jerome was instantly drawn to her infectious smile, and she was intrigued by his sense of humor, which kept her laughing the whole afternoon!

How They Knew:

Though they were both cautious about falling in love quickly, it was apparent very early on that they shared something special.  Jerome says a few months in he could easily envision their future together, and knew he had found The One!

Jerome wanted to plan out the absolutely perfect proposal, and set about to finding the right location.  After chatting with one of our proposal experts, he decided that Rockefeller Center was the perfect place to pop the question, for its very Christmassy atmosphere and magical view of the Rockefeller tree!

Jerome added humorously, “The added challenge of it being on the ice for the first time and pulling it all off without falling on my face was something she appreciated greatly!”
