Did you know that over 47% of engagements take place between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day? Engagement season has officially arrived, and it’s the perfect time to plan an epic proposal (assuming an engagement ring has already been chosen). For couples in California, it doesn’t get much more romantic than a Santa Monica engagement at a luxurious beachfront property. Popping the question may be a more intimate affair this year, replacing large gatherings with family and friends; but Shutters on the Beach and Hotel Casa del Mar are making sure this season’s proposals are just as creative and elaborate. And considering what 2020 has dished out, their new “Sky’s The Limit” engagement package couldn’t have come at a better time. Consider this the ultimate mashup of a proposal and a much-needed seaside getaway.

Location: Hotel Casa del Mar

Starting at $9,900, this romantic Santa Monica engagement package ensures a proposal worthy of the big screen. Starring the two lovebirds themselves, the engagement experience will begin with a gasp-inducing ring delivery via a carefully piloted drone, flown directly to the couple. To capture the moment, the entire engagement will be caught on camera, thanks to a well-hidden ground camera and stealthy second drone.

Additional package highlights include:

One Night in an ocean view suite at either Shutters on the Beach or Hotel Casa del Mar
Bottle of champagne upon arrival
Romantic alfresco dinner for two at The Courtyard at 1 Pico
Ring delivery by drone on the beach or other requested location
Fully produced 5-10 minute documentary-style proposal video that highlights the couple’s engagement story using drone footage

Location: Shutters on the Beach

After the much anticipated “I do,” couples can top off their Santa Monica engagement with special “Sky’s The Limit” enhancements like a private chef en suite dinner, a private yacht cruise, a custom Ferris wheel “Marry Me” message displayed on Santa Monica’s iconic pier, and a luxury convertible for some California-style cruising. For an additional cost, a custom diamond may even be provided by Vrai – a sustainable jeweler.

Contact either Shutters on the Beach or Hotel Casa del Mar to start planning an unforgettable proposal!

The wedding décor theme was a blend of French garden and lounge inspirations. Emily and Souren wanted an elegant, yet comfortable atmosphere that highlighted the beautiful table settings, flowers, and ballroom details.
