With a population of over eight million people, it can be equally as daunting as it is exciting to search for your ‘special someone’ in New York City. But the overwhelming number of shoutouts to peoples’ partners when sharing your #ToastToNYC makes us think the latter reigns supreme!
Love is certainly in the air in this great city. And our cocktail glasses are too after reading so many delightful, toast-worthy stories about how our fellow New Yorkers fell in love in NYC.
From ‘that one New Yorker who changed it all’ to ‘the first person who made NYC feel like home’, your submissions really proved that our city is pulsing with life-changing relationships at every turn.
Here are some of our favorite, love-filled toasts to NYC!
1. Smiling In The City
Any New Yorker knows the best moments here are often the simplest ones. Amidst the hustle and bustle of whatever’s going on outside your stoop, the quietness of a pajama day can be so centering and so necessary for surviving all the craziness – especially when enjoyed with the one person along for the ride.
2. A Central Park Love Story
Cheers to two love stories — both to Chiara and Matt, along with their relationship and Central Park. We can’t fathom how special it must have felt to marry the love of your life in the same location you met, let alone one as stunning as this beautiful and iconic NYC gem.
3. A New Chapter In NYC
Seeing NYC through fresh eyes is an experience best endured in the company of others, so starting your life together here is truly next level. Moving to a city with more than enough things to do sounds like the ideal adventure for two newlyweds growing together and making endless memories to look back on!
4. A 5-Star Chef…And Husband!
Scott and Monica…have we heard those names before, or are we having some déja vu?!
5. Another Chef
NYC has no shortage of fabulous dining options to choose from. But at the end of the day, nothing beats hunkering down with a delicious, home-cooked meal prepared by someone who loves you. We’ll raise a toast to Richard’s great dinners for sure.
6. Meeting In Union Square
It’s hard not to fall in love with someone in a city as magical as this one, and the vibrant, energetic spirit NYC is known for really comes to life in Union Square. No wonder Christina’s heart was so full as she got to know the man she’d eventually marry!
7. Finding Your Inner Strength
Self-love is the most powerful love out there, and NYC is the place to be if you’re trying to find it. This city might throw you into the ringer, but if you’ve got the will and determination to come out the other side like Kely did, you’ll learn what you’re made of and gain more inner strength than you could’ve imagined. Cheers to finding yourself.
