Maui Proposal with Marry Me Letters
This private oceanfront proposal in Maui with a champagne picnic and MARRY ME letters was a dream come true!
Adam was full of ideas for his engagement to Michelle. Since privacy was very important to him, our office manager Tiffany discussed all of the private proposal locations on Maui.
Adam also loved the idea of incorporating a picnic and impressive MARRY ME letters into his proposal. These types of props aren’t allowed on the beach in Hawaii, so we had to make sure the proposal venue was a good fit for the set up he was envisioning. Spirit of Aloha Oceanfront Botanical Gardens was perfect! We looped Maui Luxe Picnics in to help us set the scene for Adam and Michelle’s elegant proposal and the plan was coming together!
Adam was able to score reservations at Mama’s Fish House, one of our favorite Maui restaurants for celebrating. However, the reservation was for late afternoon and they already had plans in the morning, so we needed to schedule the proposal for early afternoon.
Afternoon is not normally an ideal time frame for proposal photography in Maui. The brighter lighting also meant the lights on the MARRY ME marquee letters would not be visible, but looking at these photos, everything turned out beautifully! We were blessed with a gorgeous day and the full sun made all of the colors pop.
Adam really listened to all of our instructions. He led Michelle to the right place and proposed where we needed him to. He stayed down on one knee for a long time, so our photographer Chantelle was able to follow them and get close ups of Michelle’s reaction as well as wide shots showing off the gorgeous surroundings. Adam even made sure Michelle’s nails were done so we could get photos of her showing off her shiny new engagement ring.
THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION:
Knowing they were going to enjoy an amazing meal after their engagement session, Adam requested the picnic just have a bottle of champagne. It was a fun way to incorporate a picnic without feeling like they were going to get too full, use up a lot of their photo time eating, or waste any food.
After their champagne toast, Michelle and Adam strolled around the property, which has a stunning mix of ocean and greenery – a tropical feel away from the hustle and bustle of resorts.
Adam chose the Simple Proposal package and those thirty minutes flew by, but they definitely left a lasting impression on all of us, especially Michelle!
Adam and Michelle: Thank you for choosing Engaged on Maui to plan and document your gorgeous engagement! Your Maui proposal with MARRY ME letters was certainly one for the books!
