Will & Samantha | Palace of Fine Arts Romantic Sunset Proposal

The Palace of Fine Arts is one of the most beautiful structures in all of the city of San Francisco. But for about two weeks every year, it’s even more special. At sunset, the sun shines through the arches of the rotunda across the pond, casting a golden spotlight on the perfect proposal spot. And for months, Will had been planning to be right there with his girlfriend Samantha.

When the time came, they walked to the spot, and Will asked Annie (who was oh-so-conveniently hanging out nearby) if she could take a photo of them with his phone. Annie adjusted their positions just a bit so they were right in the golden light… and you can see the results!

But that wasn’t all. Unbeknownst to Samantha, in a well-orchestrated surprise, thirty of their friends & family were hidden in cars, behind bushes, and in various corners of the park. It was touching to see everyone’s reactions, especially, of course, the newly-engaged Samantha’s.

Oh, and this was our 100th proposal — and I can’t imagine a more perfect moment or couple to mark this milestone with. Congrats to Will & Samantha!
