The Metropolitan Museum of Art is a naturally romantic place, making it the perfect backdrop for a fantastic proposal.

Proposal tours at the Met are one of our favorite events to plan and we especially loved working on a recent summertime proposal at the museum.

A few weeks ago, Tony reached out to us, hoping we could help make the moment he asked his longtime girlfriend to marry him extra special. We were happy to work with Tony and quickly paired him up with the tour guide who would be there for him every step of the way.

Tony and his guide planned a 90-minute tour that would allow the couple to enjoy a private museum experience before he popped the big question to his unexpecting girlfriend. We took the pair to the best sites the museum has to offer, getting them laughing and relaxing as they took in the art. Side note: we can up the ROMANCE factor on your tour by telling the stories of some of the most fascinating couples in history — this helps prep the tone for the big moment!

Since Tony and his guide had connected to plan out the key moments ahead of time, the big moment went off flawlessly as our guide kept Tony’s girlfriend occupied while he got down on one knee. We even had an incognito professional photographer on hand to capture all the moments from Tony and Natali’s tour, including the most special moment of all. Check out some of our favorite photos from the proposal:

Afterward, we took Tony and Natali to enjoy a celebratory glass of wine in the lovely American Wing Courtyard before our photographer captured more photos of the bridge-and-groom-to-be at the beautiful museum.

The couple was all smiles after their tour and they couldn’t have been happier with how the afternoon unfolded.

“Thank you again for everything, Jen, Dennis, and Museum Hack!!! The tour was spectacular, the photos are amazing, and the memories we have created with your help are simply fantastic! Big special thanks to Jen and Dennis!! It was truly special because of your amazing talent and work. Next time we are in New York, we will be sure to come see Museum Hack again!” – Tony
