Boston Rooftop Surprise Proposal | Zhanwen + Angie


Boston Rooftop Surprise Proposal

Proposals are always full of epic excitement, careful planning, and so much joy! Zhanwen planned a perfect Boston Rooftop Surprise Proposal for his now fiancé, Angie! His meticulous planning paid off because his Christmas Eve proposal was flawless. 

Zhanwen’s proposal took place at The Envoy Hotel’s amazing Lookout Rooftop! This amazing rooftop bar overlooks the Boston harbor. I’d argue the panoramic views of the boston cityscape seen here are some of the best views you’ll find in Boston! The rooftop features firepits and unique private glass igloos for winter!

Zhanwen wanted his proposal for Angie to be extra special! The ring Zhanwen gave Angie is a family heirloom, making it even more meaningful! He also asked Angie’s father’s permission for marriage beforehand, which she had no idea about. Zhanwen went above and beyond, booking a private Igloo on the rooftop where he and Angie enjoyed chilled champagne after she had joyfully said “Yes!” to his proposal! 

Before he dropped to one knee and asked Angie to be his wife, I scoped out the area to find the perfect spot for him to stand when he made his proposal. I am always willing to take care of the planning and logistics of the proposal! Once I picked the perfect spot for them to stand, I covertly left a glove and texted Zhanwen the coordinates! Not really, but I told him where to go and where he could find my strategically placed glove.  
After filling him in on the details, I was able to sit back and watch the magic unfold behind my camera! My heart still races before every proposal in anticipation! I love seeing the pure joy and unfiltered emotion during proposals! It is an incredibly special moment, and one of the reasons I love being a Boston proposal photographer! The amazing staff at Envoy Hotel were also amazing and helped us make this epic Boston Rooftop Proposal possible! Congratulations again Zhanwen and Angie!
