Proposal plans!

TIME: Pop-the-question time is 40 minutes before sunset unless otherwise noted.

MEETING PLACE:  See the map below for the pop-the-question location (zoom way in — x marks the spot).  The Hotel del Coronado is located at 1500 Orange Ave, Coronado, CA 92118.

PARKING: Normally, parking is available in the underground parking lot at the Hotel del Coronado for $20. Street parking is available on Avenida del Sol (unless closed due to construction or Covid restrictions) or on Orange Avenue just after the Avenida del Sol intersection.

BRING: The RING 💍. Please keep a towel and change of clothes in your car or hotel room just in case, especially if you’ve planned dinner after. My clients often get wet, and shots in the water are the BEST, so we don’t want to skip those! While on the beach, travel light so that we can move quickly and make the most of the available time. 

ATTIRE: For surprise proposals, this is *really* important. Your future bride will want to look her best in these photos, so plan a fancy dinner afterward and do what you can to make sure she does her hair and makeup and wears a special dress.

DINNER OPTIONS: There are several restaurants on site at the Del and others nearby, including Il Fornaio which has a beautiful nighttime view of the San Diego skyline. Here’s the scoop on dinner ideas. Again — bring a towel and change of clothes!
