Love on the Line

proposal1At around 10:10 this morning, I was informed that someone was about to propose to his girlfriend on the High Line. I arrived on site about ten minutes later, just in time to watch one of the most absurdly romantic scenes I’ve seen outside of Casablanca.

Gene proposed to his girlfriend Abby in the Chelsea Market Passage, surrounded by umbrellas, and accompanied by a single musician tugging at cello strings and heartstrings in the background. Hugging and kissing ensued, and judging by the pictures, it looks like the question was answered in the affirmative. Congratulations to Gene and Abby on their engagement, and for going down in history as the first marriage proposal on the High Line!

Anyone attempting something similarly romantic (or anything at all, really) should do so with the musical accompaniment of cellist Aminda Asher, whose Web site can be found here.

More images after the break.
