A University Club NYC Proposal
This NYC proposal at the University Club was so touching! Caroline and Matthew actually met studying abroad together in London but they didn’t start dating until after they graduated college. What a fun place to meet!
About their first date
“We met for drinks at the Rose Bar at the Gramercy Park Hotel which is a special place to us!”
What they love to do together
Caroline and Matt both love hanging at the beach and being outside. In the summers, they often travel to Long Island to spend time at the beach. Some of their favorite places together are Bermuda, Key Biscayne, Sag Harbor, and Carmel in California.
I enjoy beaches too! Bermuda’s pink sand beaches are truly the best!
What makes Caroline so special to Matt
“First, Caroline has very admirable qualities: smart, thoughtful, kind, loving and driven. We have a great connection together and it always feels like we are on the same page and have similar goals. I love how we build each other up to reach those goals.”
When I met Caroline, I could immediately see that beautiful connection between her and Matt!
Why Matt choose this place to propose
“The University Club is a place we both love and also somewhere that is centrally located where we can have our family and friends there to celebrate. Family and friends are very important to us both, so it was the perfect combination.”
I love it when couples include their friends and family in such an important moment in their life!
The time when Matt knew Caroline was the one
“I won’t say I knew after our first date but I had a pretty good feeling that she was someone special! After we were dating for 8 months, I took a trip to Australia with some friends for a few weeks. We missed each a lot when we were apart, and then met in California and had a great trip together. I think that’s when we both realized just how special our relationship was.”
About the Proposal
Matt had contacted me way back in the beginning of the year to plan this surprise proposal for Caroline. When I met him a few weeks ago at this gorgeous iconic library at the University Club, I could see the excitement and joy he had for the day, which was here before we knew it. Matt planned for all of the family and friends to be there, some even from Georgia, to celebrate after!
My husband Dan and I got there early and were pretending to play backgammon in the library. It may have been a bit odd since we were the only ones there but we pulled it off! When Matt got down on his knee and proposed Caroline was completely shocked! It was one of those “I can’t believe this is actually happening” moments. She said yes!!
I absolutely love taking photos right after proposals because the love and happiness is so clear. Matt and Caroline couldn’t stop smiling!
Family and Friends
Matt even planned for his family and friends to get there early so Caroline wouldn’t suspect anything! She was surprised to see them all! Way to go Matt, you pulled it off!
Congratulations Caroline and Matt on your engagement at the University Club in NYC! My husband Dan and I couldn’t be more excited for you and the next chapter! It’s going to be so good!
