Proposing to my wife was one of the most stressful moments of my life. I was trying to find somewhere fun and romantic. I settled on Disneyland, rented out a huge space in one of the restaurants and it was perfect, but maybe the Disney proposal isn't your thing. The World famous Empire State Building has announced a “Happily Ever Empire” proposal package that gives couples VIP access to the Observatory Experience. Couples who buy tickets are invited to propose in a designated corner of the building’s iconic, open-air 86th-floor Observatory. Along with the amazing and famous view/spot they get to pop a bottle of champagne to celebrate the exciting moment.
The package is $1,000 per couple, which includes a private guided tour through the Empire State Building’s captivating exhibits, that show off the building’s history and the classic love stories that have taken place within. After the couples proposal and celebration to their engagement, they’re invited to head up to the 102nd-floorObservatory, that has floor-to-ceiling windows with a 360-degree view which offers an opportunity to take magnificent photos.
You can get your tickets at www.esbnyc.com. One must be at least 21 years old to purchase and it must be booked at least 24 hours ahead of time, due to limited reservations available each day. If you would like to have photographers, family and friends there they have to purchase Express tickets separately to take part in the celebration.
