New York Valentine’s Day Shows Love in Times Square


Times Square, Manhattan (WABC) – Love is flying at the crossroads of the world this Valentine’s Day.

The Times Square Alliance is hosting a full day of romantic celebrations that include two surprise marriage proposals, a wedding and a vow renewal ceremony.

First, a couple got married in the heart of Times Square.

Monica Fonseca and Moses Verbana, visiting from San Antonio, chose to marry in Times Square for bittersweet reasons.

In July, they spent time with Verbana’s daughter Sydney, who took her life later in August.

“It’s a special place for her, she had a great time, and we want to come back to marry and honor her,” the couple said.

That’s not all – Verbana has been battling brain cancer. But despite so many challenges, the two chose to celebrate their love.

Their wedding took place at Bloom by Habitat Workshop, winner of the annual Times Square design competition. Bloom was unveiled on February 9 and will be experienced in person in Times Square until March 9.

After the wedding ceremony, two lucky lovers were pleasantly surprised to receive a Valentine’s Day gift that they – and the rest of Times Square – did not foresee and will not soon forget: Times Square’s iconic American Eagle on screen surprise marriage proposal.

Emma Adams has proposed to her girlfriend Sarah Malburn – something she says she’s always wanted to do.

Malbun said she couldn’t believe it and she was completely stunned.

Finally, Monday night was a celebration of love and commitment on the iconic red steps of Times Square, with performances by several Broadway stars.

Six couples have signed on to renew their vows – welcome in.

“Those moments are usually an intimate setting, but Times Square is clearly a global platform and what better, bigger place to express your love for someone,” said Joe Papa of Times Square Alliance.

On the day of the event, the Alliance is partnering with local businesses to offer promotions, offers or experiences throughout February.All details can be found at
