Adam + Alexa | Message in a Bottle Proposal in Maui
Message in a Bottle Proposal in Maui
This message in a bottle proposal in Maui was one of my favorites to date. It involved a yellow legal pad, a cleverly hidden bottle, my lost slipper, and a completely empty South Maui beach.
Adam contacted me wanting to surprise his girlfriend Alexa with a message in a bottle on a beach in Maui. I was pretty excited to help him do this. I love beach combing and what would be more romantic than finding a message in a bottle that’s also a marriage proposal?
First, I had to write the message on yellow legal pad. Why? Because whenever Adam writes Alexa notes, he always uses yellow legal pad. So I scratched out “Alexa S, will you marry me?” on some yellow legal pad, placed it in a bottle, and hid the bottle at our designated beach. I told the location to Adam via email and we were ready to rock.
I shoved myself back into some bushes so I wouldn’t be detected and I waited. Soon Adam came around the corner with Alexa. He led her over to the spot and she didn’t even see the bottle! She kept snapping away–taking many, many photos! Finally, Adam pointed it out in the sand and asked her what it was.
She picked it up and as she opened the bottle, Adam got down on one knee. Between the “are you kidding me?!” and the the “Oh my gosh” she said yes!
I was so excited capturing the moment, I jumped out of one of my slippers! Even with the help of Adam and Alexa, I couldn’t find that darn thing. Somewhere, on a secluded beach in Maui, there is a blue Havaiana that is missing its mate!
THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION:
We stayed in South Maui for the rest of the engagement session. We ended up going to several beaches and lava fields on our way. We had a beautiful sunset on our own little slice of beach and called it a day!
Alexa and Adam: Thank you so much for allowing me to capture such a special time in your lives. Your message in a bottle proposal in Maui was so sweet 🙂 and I love the yellow legal pad detail!
Congratulations and enjoy 2016 as a newly engaged couple!
