If you think a wedding consists of a lot of pressure to make it ‘the best day possible’, wait until you see the moment where it all begins: the proposal. This is where the real creativity comes in. Some keep it a secret for over a year, others even break the rules of society. The latter certainly happened to Chris, who took his girlfriend Marybeth to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Not just to look at art but to ask his girlfriend ‘the big question’. He did so by placing a miniature painting of ‘their moment’ on the wall:

As we walked the aisles of art from ancient times and contemporary alike, we happened upon a room of Picasso’s art (Marybeth’s favorite), My brother and sister in law were able to then hang the painting I had made of myself proposing to Marybeth wearing the red polka dot dress next to a Picasso. After I was given the signal I brought my girlfriend to the painting where she began immediately crying when she realized that the painting was of what was about to take place.

She nodded yes as tears travelled down her rosy cheeks. Her cousin, who had been undercover waiting for them to arrive at the museum, beautifully documented the moment through her photography.

I knew she’d be wearing that dress because I had her mom buy it a few weeks in advance for her and then convinced her to wear it that day.” He also contacted a few small museums for permission to perform a similar stunt, but none agreed. “I just said f it and decided I just do it at the biggest museum I could think of and ask for forgiveness rather than permission.
