There is no shortage of gorgeous parks in the 904 and Riverfront Park is one of our favorites! Evonna and Michael got engaged with the company of their closest friends and family after a romantic picnic. Not an eye was dry!

The Cummer Museum is famous for its gardens that are full of history and beauty. JT knew that it was the perfect place to propose to the love of his life, Ashleigh! Congratulations to the happy couple! 

Washington Oaks State Park

Not too far south of Jacksonville, Washington Oaks Gardens State Park offers beautiful gardens and rocky beaches where you can just feel the romance in the air! Montavis and his future bride Aysh said yes to forever at this beautiful oasis!

Cowford Chophouse

Cowford is one of our favorite steak houses in town and the rooftop views make for the perfect proposal backdrop! Connor worked with the Cowford team to arrange a private rooftop with flowers and champagne to surprise his soon-to-be fiancé Savannah!

Jaguars Home Game

The ultimate surprise proposal for a Jaguars fan! 24-year Navy veteran Shane asked his girlfriend Carla to marry him him during pregame of The Jaguars Salute to Service game, and of course she said yes!

Boneyard Beach

There are so many picturesque beaches here in North Florida and Boneyard Beach never disappoints! The beautiful landscape of driftwood, ocean, and sky make for a perfect photo backdrop. Congratulations to Deonna and Drew who were enegaged at this iconic beach.

Sunflower Field

It's sunflower season at Amazing Grace Farms! Picking sunflowers together makes for a great daytime date and photoshoot. It's the perfect opportunity to drop down on one knee and ask the big question. Congrats to Hannah and Dominic!

Jacksonville Riverwalk

The Jacksonville Riverwalk is the perfect proposal spot for couples who found love here in the River City. Thatcher knew that Jacksonville’s beautiful skyline was the perfect backdrop for when he asked his girlfriend (and professional photographer) Melissa Wright to marry him!

San Marco Square

San Marco lovers, the gazebo at Ballis Park in The Square is such a romantic proposal spot! Just add rose petals like Greg did for his future wife Ashley! Be sure to make reservations to celebrate afterwards at one of the many restaurants and bars in the area.

Feeling inspired? Here's 4 Proposal Tips from the experts:

1. Know your S/O's style and finger size!

If they haven't made a dream ring Pinterest board or dropped all the hints in your dm's, then you can stop in to Diamonds Direct to try on styles and get sized. They will make a wishlist profile to make it even easier on you!

2. Plan in advance

Diamonds Direct rings are customized to fit your personal style and budget! They carry a huge selection of pre-made engagement rings at all price points that can be sized in a few days, but if you want something more custom then plan for it to take a few weeks.

3. Pick the perfect location

As you can see from the above, there are so many beautiful and romantic places in Jacksonville for a marriage proposal. It would also be a great idea to propose on that upcoming summer vacation (hint, hint)!

4. Hire a photographer

Once you have the ring and the location planned, be sure to make a plan for photos because this is a moment you'll want to remember forever! Have a friend, family member, or better yet a professional photographer nearby to capture the special moment.

Our friends at Diamonds Direct are celebrating summer love all month long with their 5 Years 0% Interest* Financing Event! It is the perfect time to splurge on the ring of your dreams!
