Romantic Maui Scavenger Hunt Proposal
Ken and Lisa came to Maui all the way from Australia. He wanted to do something a little different for his proposal to Lisa–a romantic Maui scavenger hunt! Between the two of us, we came up with the locations. Ken trusted me to put together the clues. As a former English teacher, I love to rhyme, so every clue had a little bit of a rhyme scheme. Also, I mapped out everything ahead of time for Ken so he’d know exactly where to go. Although, he pretended he had no idea where the next clue would be as to not tip off Lisa.
First, Ken had to tell Lisa that the scavenger hunt was a tourist attraction he’d found online, so she wasn’t thinking a proposal was about to happen. Then, they started their hunt in the northern part of South Maui. And the plan was for the clues to lead her farther and farther south winding up in the Makena area. There, we had an aisle-way of orchids waiting on a semi-private beach with a ukulele player, Charles Nahale. Charles is one of my favorite ukulele players. He’s so genuine and kind and talented.
When Ken and Lisa followed their last clue to the beach, they walked up the orchid aisle to the ukulele player and Charles played them a beautiful song. Then Charles handed the ukulele over to Ken, and Ken played Lisa a song he had written just for her. Ken gave the ukulele back and Charles played another song while Ken dropped to one knee and asked Lisa to marry him.
THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION:
After he proposed, me popping out of the bushes with cameras ready was Lisa’s third surprise for the day. The first two surprises being the scavenger hunt made just for her and Ken’s beautiful proposal. For the engagement photo session, we hit several different locations in South Maui. It was pretty voggy that day, but we still got great colors in the sky! What an adventure!
Ken and Lisa: Thanks for choosing Engaged on Maui to be a part of your proposal! I had a great time creating your Romantic Maui Scavenger Hunt Proposal!
