Los Altos Redwood Grove

Nestled in a quiet neighborhood in Palo Alto is this beautiful redwood grove.  It's a beautiful and quiet spot.  Perfect for a proposal!

---

Gamble Garden

Gamble Garden is a beautiful garden in the heart of Palo Alto.  There's a lovely gazebo, lots of great little areas to propose (and take photos!).

---

Wayfare Tavern

If you'd like to propose at a restaurant, check out Wayfare Tavern in San Francisco.  It's so classy and even has a special table inside a vault!

---

Legion of Honor

There's a reason why so many photographers love this spot in San Francisco - it's GORGEOUS.  The huge white columns would make for an epic proposal.

---

Castello di Amorosa

Did you know there is an ACTUAL castle within driving distance of the Bay Area?  Yup!  Castello di Amorosa is a winery in Calistoga.  It's a fairytale spot for a proposal, and you can go wine tasting inside the castle too!

Okay, not quite the Bay Area, but if you are headed to Lake Tahoe, make sure to bring your special someone to the Emerald Bay Lookout for a stunning proposal.  I recommend going in the morning to avoid crowds (it gets super crowded).

The ruins of the historic San Francisco Sutro Baths makes for a great proposal spot.  Yes, it gets crowded (especially at sunset which is the best lighting), so choose a weekday if possible.

City Hall is one of the most gorgeous buildings in San Francisco.  It's a great spot for proposals and photos.  Best time to go is on a weekday morning, and make sure to get there early for parking and going through security.

Lands End

This is the trail just above Sutro Baths in San Francisco.  It's a favorite of photographers because of how beautiful it is.  A great proposal spot (but try a weekday to avoid crowds).

Pier 7 and 14 are good spots for photos, but so is the walk along the water with the Bay Bridge in the background.  Go for a stroll, find the spot, and propose!

This beach is a bit quieter than the main beaches, and it has a great lighthouse you can walk up to.  It's a fun spot for a proposal and engagement photos.
