M&V’s Mount Tamalpais East Peak Surprise Proposal

We’ve seen a lot of sunsets, but very few compare to the epic, sweeping views seen from up at the Mt. Tam. M did a ton of research before deciding on the Mount Tamalpais East Peak for his surprise proposal to V, spending many hours driving around the Bay Area to pick the perfect spot. Since he knew she loves mountains, hills, and nature, he knew this was going to be the place. It’s pretty well hidden away, but this rock on the side of the mountain offers a sweeping 270-degree panoramic view of San Francisco and the Bay Area, and it’s nothing short of spectacular.

Tricia & Ming’s Gorgeous Atlanta Canoe Wedding

I’ve been waiting for this day for almost twenty years! From once being chemistry buddies and proofreading each others’ AP US History essays (yes, I just looked through our old emails — truly from another era, they actually feature Netscape ads in the footers), we’ve come a long way since those days. Tricia is the same girl she always was, but a couple years ago, she was lucky enough to have met the wonderful man that is Ming. [ read more … ]

Ron & Isabelle’s Epic Mt Tam Surprise Proposal in the Clouds

On top of a mountain, above the clouds — what could be a more romantic place to get engaged?

Ron wanted his proposal to be a family event; after all, getting engaged is a significant moment in the joining of two families into one. His plan was for the parents to meet for the first time in the morning, then to take a trip together to the top of Mount Tamalpais where he would pop the question. One problem was: where in the huge expanse of Mt Tam would be a good spot? To that end, I drove up a couple of weeks prior to the proposal to scout out the area and compiled a list of locations for him. Ron and I both thought one spot in particular, with its wide, expansive view of Marin and even San Francisco, was perfect… and thus the plan for this epic Mt Tam surprise proposal was set into motion.
