5 Ideas for a Memorable Proposal

Over-the-top fabulous or quiet, everyday moment?

A person wishing to propose is often faced with the agony of choosing a suitable place for the ‘question of all questions’.

In our view, the proposal location should compliment the personal preferences of your intended whenever possible.

Here are a few of our favorite places and ideas.


    The external City of Love…what could be more romantic? How about making it truly unforgettable by proposing atop the city’s most famous landmark– the Eiffel Tower? Photo by Stephen Leonardi on Unsplash


    Our own famous landmark, the Golden Gate Bridge, features in the backdrop of many proposals. But how about kayaking under it like Vardy’s customers, Danny and Gina? Photo by Trent Erwin on Unsplash


    With miles of spectacular coastline, our state offers an abundance of picturesque scenery for your memorable proposal. One of our favorite spots is within Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. Photo by Austin Prock on Unsplash


    California’s majestic redwood groves provide the ultimate woodland setting for your dreamy proposal. We love iconic Muir Woods but don’t discount nearby Big Basin State Park. Photo by Nathan Dumlao on Unsplash


    Even a seemingly simple proposal can be extraordinary. One might anticipate it on a trip to Paris or at a special occasion restaurant. But an unexpected surprise can be very beautiful and heartfelt. Our idea? Take your intended to lunch and then wander over to Vardy’s “just to look”… then surprise–pop the question!
