New Jersey Wedding Photographer - Creative Marriage Proposals

One of the services I provide as a DJ is consulting with the client to get to know their personalities and how they met so we can tell their story in full or in shorter segments at the appropriate times during the reception.  One of those details may include how he proposed to her.  Some stories are incredibly romantic, funny or executed so well, it makes me wish I could do mine all over again with more flair.   Over the years, I’ve filed away other proposals that could help other incurable romantics prove to the love of their life some serious thought went into “popping the question”.

Rings have been presented in the bottom of champagne glasses, inside a rose bud or in place of dessert.  Or by carefully removing part of the bottom of a box of Cracker Jacks and swapping out the toy prize inside with some bigger bling.

Some of the more memorable stories I’ve heard during my DJ/Client meetings don’t involve the discovery of the ring at all but the proposal itself.

One required quite a bit of planning that included walking through a large courtyard where a flash mob broke out, the groom not only danced but serenaded his bride-to-be while dropping to one knee.

Another had his friends hiding in the bushes near the clearing of one of the couples favorite hiking trails..  When he pretended to tie his boot, he pulled the ring out and the entire thing was captured on video thanks to his friends.

Guys have also disguised themselves, only revealing their true identity after they were on one knee, temporarily leaving the woman wondering why Santa Claus or in one case during a sporting event, the team mascot chose to incorporate her into the halftime show by kneeling in front of her!  Proposals have also been done on stage at concerts or plays and even written into songs.  One client took his girlfriend shopping and as they casually passed a jewelry store, showcased behind the glass was her ring with his personalized message on a card next to it.

My recent favorite is from one guy who worked with the couples favorite restaurant long in advance of an upcoming dinner date to obtain one of the menus.  He then carefully placed his proposal in her favorite seafood section with matching font and everything.  Safe to say his effort was — priceless.

So guys,  incorporate your own personalities into it, make it move her to tears, laughter or both – but make it memorable!
