The winter break is a hot season for proposals – no matter the culture.
It makes sense as the year comes to an end and we plan on our New Year’s resolution and changes. It is also a time dedicated to family and our loved ones.
Montreal is an extremely romantic place for proposals, here are a few spots that we find amazing all year round for the perfect proposal.
The Mount Royal Observatory.
Overlooking the city, it is a great location to popping the question to your loved one. The open sky and large open plaza makes it easy to forget the crowd.
On one hand side – the large crowd makes the event quite public and will bring out a lot of stares, cheers and congratulations. On the other, it is easy for a photographer to blend in and be able to capture moments as you are going down on one knee.
As the proposal is sealed – you can casually walk around and savour the excitement of the moment in nature.
The Old Port Skate Rink
Next to the Ferris wheel – there’s a large skate rink. It is full of people on a good day, with reason, the views are breathtaking and sheer size of it makes it more interesting than going around in circles.
One thing to keep in mind here are other skaters – as some of them go around and it may be difficult to focus. Having a photographer nearby to capture the special moment would be best made out from a ground location such as a bridge.
After she says yes – you should keep on doing circles together, makes out for some of the most romantic and clean winter photos out there.
In front of the Love sign
A classic that cannot be missed – the LOVE sign in front of the L’Hotel – although not as grand as the New York City one. It makes for a great pop and for an appropriate question and beautiful moment.
Staying in the Old Port – allows us to switch between inside and outside pictures. As the winter might get quite cold at times and having a coffee shop or a bar to hop into makes for a great variety while keeping you warm.
The last location we’d like to share is private to you – that’s where you both like to go to. Something personal, perhaps unconventional for a proposal, but much more valuable as a memory associated with that location.
