Maui Proposal at Nakalele Blowhole
Since I opened Engaged on Maui in 2015, I have been itching to do a proposal somewhere off the beaten path. The allure of adventure and epic locations isn’t for everyone though (and that’s OK), but I was so incredibly excited for Jay’s proposal to Julia. Their Maui proposal at Nakalele Blowhole had a message in a bottle, beautiful scenery, and two secret friends that were waiting to surprise Julia afterward!
I arrived at the blowhole about 30 minutes before Julia and Jay were set to arrive. I met their friends Christina and Jasper and we made a plan. They were wearing matching shirts to commemorate the occasion and had made signs for after the proposal. If there’s something that makes a proposal truly special, it’s your friends or family surprising you there as well!
With the help of Jasper and Christina, I was able to pick out Jay and Julia using my zoom lens. They stopped on their way down the cliff to take some photos and we patiently waited. When they approached the heart rock Jay casually plucked the bottle from its spot and handed it to Julia. She read the note and looked up–and Jay was down on one knee. We couldn’t hear the words Jay said to Julia, just her response of “Are you kidding me?!?!” over and over! She said yes! After she said yes, Christina and Jasper jumped out from behind me and surprised her! The look on her face was priceless!
THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION:
We visited several places near the blowhole. This part of Maui has so many beautiful spots with cliffs, jungle, and scenic vistas. We ended our session on the beach just in time for sunset!
Julia and Jay – Your proposal was something that my heart has been aching for. And it was so, so special that your friends could be there to witness the whole thing. Congratulations Jay and Julia!
