Lafras & Chelsea's Proposal Story in Kona

How did you meet?

It was a random meeting at Disneyland, a one in a billion chance. I was living in San Francisco at the time and she was living in San Diego, I got her number, we dated long distance flying back and forth for six months and then moved in together. The rest is history!

What is your love story?

It was just extremely apparent from the start what a great match we are, I don't think there was a specific moment really, it just sank in with time that she was it for me.

What made you choose this proposal destination?

Hawaii is special to her, her mom is from there and her parents honeymooned in Oahu.

What is your proposal story?

Our first date was a beach picnic in SF by the Golden Gate Bridge, so early in the day I gifted her a massage from the spa at the resort and while she was there I picked up supplies for a charcuterie board, champagne, and macarons. I had told her that we had a dinner reservation and a short activity beforehand for her birthday (which was a couple of days prior but we were busy zip lining through Hilo and scaling Mauna Kea) so after a relaxing pool day we got ready for a nice night out and headed to Old Kona Airport Beach - a beautiful romantic beach picked out by our amazing photographer Adriana. When we got there I set up our picnic and started the playlist I had created for the occasion. As we enjoyed our snacks and champagne I spoke to her about our past, our present and our future. When our favorite song came on I asked her to dance with me. While we swayed I told her all the things I loved about her, and when the moment was right I went down on knee and asked her to marry me. “When I fall in Love” sung by Michael Buble was playing, we were both overwhelmed with emotion, it was beautiful. Adriana captured the moment and let us be for a bit and then we did a beautiful shoot against the sunset and the lava rocks. It could not have been more perfect.

Best tip for proposing in Kona

Hawaii has always had a special place in our hearts as it was the first place we went on vacation together so it was the perfect spot for the proposal.
