A Suprise Wedding Proposal Pulled Off During Rom-Com Tour Of NYC

A woman's dream of a wedding proposal in Central Park has come true.

During a visit to New York city, Dejana Kusic's boyfriend proposed to her on a romantic comedy movie site tour.

The site-seeing experience began at Cafe Lalo, with Kusic as the leading lady, made famous by the romantic comedy You've Got Mail starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. From there, Kusic and Kosovik took a quick drive in a private car to Jess and Marie's Brownstone in When Harry Met Sally, another romance favorite starring Ryan as well as Billy Crystal.

Laura Walter, a long-time guide for On Location Tours says it's a special tour where she has helped facilitate quite a few picture-perfect proposals.

"I have always wanted to be proposed to in Central Park," Dejana Kusic, who thought she was just going on a practice run-through of the tour, tells PEOPLE ahead of National Proposal Day

There was a stop at the Lincoln Center, home to some famous films including MoonstruckSweet Home Alabama and West Side Story. On the way to the Plaza Hotel — which is featured in a number of classics including The Way We Were, and Sleepless in Seattle — the group stopped by Tiffany & Co., the ultimate spot in none other than Breakfast at Tiffany's before making the last stop on the tour in Central Park - where the proposal happened.

Inside the park, the group stopped at Bow Bridge, a walkway that's been in too many romantic comedies to count.

And just like that, Kosovik proposed to Kusic and naturally, she said, yes!

Kosovik came to visit from Bosnia and Herzegovina, speaks very little English and was able to pull this off with success.

"It is written in mythology that if a couple walks over the bridge holding hands, they will be together forever," Walter said as Kusic and Kosovik interlocked their hands and made their way over the bridge, stopping halfway for photos.
"It was perfect," she tells PEOPLE. "This was one of the most important and best days of our lives."
Adds Walter, "As someone who has worked with Dejana for a while and knows what a wonderful person she is, it made me so incredibly happy to be part of one of the most special moments of her life."
"She deserves nothing but the best in life," says the tour guide who facilitated the engagement, "and Pavle is such a kind and loving man and now fiancé."
