Surprise Wedding Proposal on Kauai

On a beautiful evening in Hanalei, I was hiding in the bushes waiting for Matt and Sara to show up. Matt had contacted me to organize a surprise wedding proposal. Sara, of course, had no clue what her man had been planning for weeks. Today was the big day. The weather was perfect and the sky was mostly blue with some patchy clouds and made for great lighting for a sunset photo shoot.

Enchanted Proposal

Talk about romantic!  We recently helped arrange a most beautiful proposal here on the north shore of Kauai.  The groom to be wanted a garden setting, so I visited several places to find the perfect spot.  The photographer, musician, and I went ahead to set up the flowers and hide behind the trees before the couple arrived.  It was a beautiful day, and the waterfall at the end of the valley was in full view coming down the hill.  After crossing 2 small bridges, they came to his chosen design of flowers on the ground, and the guitarist was playing their favorite songs on the guitar.  It took a few moments for what was happening to sink in, as he led her to the flowers and got on his knee to propose!  Naomi captured these beautiful moments in the photos below.  She said YES!!
