The second part of proposing to you sweetheart is finding the perfect spot for the big moment. If you're looking for an adventure to mark the occasion of your engagement then head over to Niagara Falls!Enjoy this stunning wonder of nature before popping the question and asking your future fiance to join you in embarking on the greatest adventure of your lives together. You can tour the falls in a variety of ways: the traditional “maid of the mist” boats, a whirlpool jet boat tour of the lower Niagara river, a helicopter ride or an aerocar ride above the falls, or even a trip behind the falls! If you want that spectacular view without the noise and activity then perhaps you'll want to present the special engagement ring in the Skylon tower which overlooks the falls from 775 feet up. This will still provide a great backdrop for pictures after your honey says 'yes!' and may be a more intimate moment between the two of you. The sparkle from the gemstone or diamond jewelry that you select will remind you both of the rainbow sparkles that play in the mist of the mighty falls. Whenever you look at the engagement ring or your wedding bands from Knox Jewelers you'll be reminded of your special day full of adventures and wonder.
Perhaps focusing on something artistic would suit you more. Frank Lloyd Wright designed and built several buildings in the Buffalo-area. The Martin House Complex (the finest example of his Prairie Style), the George Barton house, the Walter V. Davidson house, the William R. Heath house, and Wright’s final Buffalo-area house, Graycliff which has been called his most important summer estate. There are also two new additions from 2004 and 2007: Blue Sky Mausoleum & Fontana Boathouse. These were designed and drafted by Wright but were not built while he was still alive. Many of his stunning designs offer tours, one of which could be the perfect setting for your proposal. Take your honey on one of these tours and when the moment is right pull out the breathtaking engagement ring that you've had custom-created from Knox Jewelers. Everyone will 'ooh' and 'aah' over how much the light sparkles off this piece of diamond jewelry which also double as a wearable piece of art. Your new fiance will be overjoyed and will light up even more than the diamonds. It will be no time at all before you're exchanging your vows and wedding bands.
For the feeling of a mini vacation to far away places check out the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens located at the entrance to Buffalo’s historic South Park. They were originally created from 1894-1900 and the conservatory alone takes up 11.4 acres.
They have a Fern House & Ancient Rainforest, a Desert House, a Tropical House, a Victorian Ivy & Herb House, an Orchid House, a Begonia House, a Panama Cloud Forest, a Florida Everglades, a Palm Dome, a Rose Garden, a Shrub/Perennial Peace Garden, and a Children’s Garden. Pick the perfect space and take your true love's hand in yours as you pull out the sparkling engagement ring from Knox Jewelers. You'll both feel like you're in paradise as you slip this piece of gemstone or diamond jewelry onto their finger and ask them to spend the rest of time with you. The two of you can even relive this spectacular memory by presenting each other with your wedding bands at the Botanical Gardens! They offer a variety of packages and guarantee an amazing backdrop of exotic plants for the big day.
If you enjoy the great outdoors check out Delaware Park!
Take walks, play frisbee, or pack a picnic! The proposal doesn't need to be fancy, it just has to be special to the two of you. If you want a little extra entertainment and you're going in the summer then check out the Shakespeare in Delaware Park performances. They perform Tuesdays through Sundays from mid-June to the third week of August and each year brings new productions. They state on their website that all performances begin at 7:30 p.m. EST and recommend that on busy nights it is best to arrive at least 1/2 hour ahead of time. The performances are held on Shakespeare Hill next to Hoyt Lake behind the Rose Garden, off Lincoln Parkway near the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. Imagine taking the afternoon to wander the park hand-in-hand with your sweetheart, then you enjoy a picnic dinner together. As you go to unpack the tasty treats you've brought for dessert, instead pull out the custom engagement ring that you've had Knox Jewelers create just for your true love. You'll enjoy the enthusiastic 'Yes!' and spend time cuddled together in bliss as the Shakespeare performance begins. You can be sure that your new fiance will be eager to return the favor by choosing your wedding band from Knox Jewelers so that you can both have these wonderful pieces of gemstone or diamond jewelry that will last down the generations of your new family together; a constant reminder of the deep devotion and love that began it all.
