The final few weeks leading up to a bride’s wedding can be tense. Too many times to count, I have witnessed my clients stress, panic and become completely consumed in perfecting every last detail. Unfortunately, this often comes at the expense of taking time for themselves, their friends and most importantly, connecting with their fiancés. I have the perfect solution: take a walk together! Yes, it sounds simple, but it’s something most of us forget to do. The Brooklyn Bridge, rich with history, is a surprisingly wonderful place to walk. With a walk path that stretches from downtown Brooklyn to NYC, you’ll have plenty of time to catch up. With little to distract you, aside from the scenic views, it is unexpectedly romantic. Stash a camera in your pocket, or if you’d rather unleash your inner artiste, bring a few sheets of white paper and colored pencils – halfway over the bridge you can trace etchings, which make for a lovely keepsake. Best of all, with restaurants on both the Brooklyn and Manhattan side, you can end the walk with dinner and a glass of wine to toast the two of you! Here is a picture of my clients, Maria and Vincent, during their recent walk over the Brooklyn Bridge:
“Thanks Michael for the great advice! Vincent and I had a wonderful time reconnecting. I have lived in Brooklyn for years and it is something I have never done! I’m so glad I listened to you!”
Awww that couple looks adorable. John, my finance, and I plan to take your advice Michael and walk over the bridge this weekend. I will send pics!
