You know we love a good proposal story and Jamie + Brendon’s definitely does not disappoint! The beautiful bride shares:

Late January 2017 It was 2-weeks before my 30th birthday and Brendon wanted to make it a birthday that I would never forget. He was in LA at the time and found a jeweler who made the exact ring that I wanted, my dream ring, all over my Pinterest board! Brendon secretly reached out to my employer to arrange some time off so I could fly out to California and spend my birthday with him, I was so excited! When I arrived in LA Brendon joked about going to Hawaii for the weekend and I thought he was joking – that would be crazy! The next morning I woke up as Brendon walked in and said, “You better get packed up if we’re going to make it to Hawaii for the weekend.” I was so surprised and excited! We arrived in Hawaii and the next day I got to wake up in Hawaii on my 30th Birthday, what a dream! Brendon took me on the Lanikai Pillbox hike, with the ring in his pocket the entire time. While overlooking the breathtaking view, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Through teary eyes and shock, I said yes!

Needless to say, Hawaii holds a very special place in the couple’s hearts so it was an easy choice for them to return back to paradise to say their I Dos. They chose the Lower Knoll at Gannon’s Wailea where both their ceremony and reception took place. With the beach just across the street from this gorgeous venue, they had both the romantic ocean view and the sand in their toes during their romantic couples photos.

We had so much fun planning with this sweet couple and wish them a lifetime of love and Aloha. Mahalo for choosing Makena Weddings as your Maui wedding planner!
