Today’s featured proposal takes place on Sunset Cliff. This was definitely one for the books! Read all about it below.

Sunset Cliff Proposal on Maui’s North Shore

Michael was originally thinking of a Haleakala sunrise proposal. However, we need at least one month to reserve Haleakala at sunrise and we only had about a week to plan. Michael and Erin are outdoorsy and love to hike. Michael said few spots would be off limits. We jumped at the opportunity to suggest this north shore cliff location, which fit perfectly into their existing vacation plans.


On the day of the proposal, Michael and Erin planned to drive the Road to Hana. Michael was able to get reservations at Mama’s Fish House to enjoy on the way back. Their reservation was for afternoon, between lunch and dinner, before sunset. The timing worked out so that they could have a leisurely meal and then Michael could suggest going to the proposal spot to watch the sunset.


Michael led Erin to where they could look out at the Pacific Ocean. Since there was nowhere for our photographer Tenessa to hide, she followed them discreetly from behind and was poised and ready to capture the big moment. Erin looked surprised at first and then couldn’t stop beaming from ear to ear!


The rocky terrain made a beautiful contrast to the blue water and the clouds added drama to the sky. The off-the-beaten path location was very fitting for an outdoorsy couple. Michael and Erin were so sweet! They couldn’t keep their eyes off each other and loved holding each other close.
