Proposal at Ali’i Kula Lavender Farm

Michael wanted to do something that was a little bit different.  He and his sweet girlfriend Emily are self-proclaimed as “not a beach couple.” He wanted something unique, and he was really drawn to having a proposal at Ali’i Kula Lavender Farm.  We were totally on board with this location because we just love doing stuff that is different. 

THE PLAN:

I had been in contact with Michael for a couple months, and we went back and forth talking about the growing seasons and when the lavender would be in bloom because they have different harvesting seasons.  When we did location scouting, we looked at about four different spots at the lavender farm. We ultimately chose this deck with a beautiful view looking over all of Maui from above. The first date we had chosen for this proposal actually got rained out. We had a crazy storm roll through, and we even had thunderstorms which is incredibly unusual for us.  Michael was so awesome he just rolled with the punches. We decided that we were going to go for it a few days later. 

THE PROPOSAL:

As they walked in through the fields of blooming lavender, we started snapping away.  Down on the deck, we had a little setup of lavender coffee and lavender scones from the farm ready for them as they walked over. They went to enjoy the deck on their own for a bit and when Michael was ready he dropped down to one knee and popped the question!  Of course she said YES! 

THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION:

We did some of our engagement session around the lavender farm and then we drove up further into the mountain. We went into the forest up there, and it was awesome because the clouds roll in right on top of you. This photo session was so diverse because we had the bright colors of the lavender farm and then this romantic light that came through the forest for the later part of our session.  This couple was so endearing, they were laughing together the whole day.
