Manhattan sweethearts Marisa and Jason started planning their destination wedding at The Breakers two days after the groom-to-be surprised his love with an amazing proposal in Central Park.

Engaged: Marisa & Jason

“The Breakers was our first and only choice. We fell in love with the Italian Renaissance style of the hotel, which, coupled with the beachfront setting, made it the prefect location for us,” says bride-to-be Marisa. “We also love the idea of having a full wedding weekend rather than just a wedding day, which allows us to spend more time with our friends and family who we don’t get to see very often.”

Before we share their stunning engagement photos by CM Howard Photography, we just have to share their beautiful proposal story – which happens to be the inspiration for their fabulous photoshoot…

Engaged: Marisa & Jason

Marisa and Jason got engaged in Central Park on the morning of July 23, 2011. Jason staged the surprise proposal atop Bow Bridge and even had one of his co-workers pose nearby as a tourist and film the special moment. Afterwards Marisa said “YES,” Jason led her to a breakfast picnic – complete with champagne and amazing view.

The couple’s engagement photos were taken in Central Park and the High Line – a park built on the former elevated New York Central Railroad tracks – and a few (above) on the Bow Bridge at the exact spot where they got engaged.

 “We definitely always wanted a destination wedding. As much as we love NYC, the hustle and bustle of the city is less than relaxing,” Marisa says on why they choose Palm Beach. “A destination wedding allows us to decompress and relax before the wedding as well as provide our guests with a mini-vacation!”

“I am most looking forward to the first look when Jason sees me in my dress for the first time!” Beautiful bride-to-be Marisa says. “I also can’t wait to see my guests celebrating and having a great time, which will make all the planning and hard work worthwhile!”

Jason makes us melt when he explains the moment he’s most anticipating: “I can’t wait to see my beautiful bride for the first time in her wedding dress. Most importantly, I’m excited to be getting married to my best friend.”

Congratulations Marisa & Jason – we are so very excited to host your special wedding weekend!
