Wondering where to pop the big question in Washington State?

From scenic mountain views to charming seaside towns, this diverse state is awash with stunning natural beauty.

Whether you're looking for a private and intimate setting or a grand and luxurious backdrop, we've curated the 15 most romantic places to propose in the Evergreen State.

We’re talking fascinating history… breathtaking vistas… and a serious side portion of charm!

So buckle up, and prepare to let the beauty of Washington State wash over you!

A Capital Proposal

When we say natural beauty, we mean it!

Along with the majestic Mount Rainier, Olympic Mountains, and North Cascades, Washington State is home to the utterly delightful San Juan Islands, a popular destination for proposals and weddings. 

But it’s not all big, bold landscapes! If whimsical towns, scenic drives, and cozy cafes are more your speed, you’ll be spoiled for choice.

No wonder so many couples get engaged here!

Just look at Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, whose characters famously met at the top of the Washington State’s Space Needle in ‘Sleepless in Seattle’!

Or Bella and Edward Cullen, whose epic love story was played out against the dramatic forests and mountains of the Pacific Northwest in the moody ‘Twilight’ saga.

Those movie makers knew what they were doing, and it’s clear that Washington State has the power to make anyone’s heart flutter, vampires included! 

Read on, and prepare to say ‘lights, camera, action’ in your very own love story.

15 Most Romantic Places to Propose in Washington State

1. Artist Point:

Artist Point is located in the North Cascades National Park and offers stunning panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and valleys.

The rugged terrain makes it an ideal spot for lovestruck adventurers.

We recommend the summer months when the wildflowers are in bloom.

Or you could arrange a private helicopter tour to get this national treasure's full sense of awe and wonder.

2. Reflection Lake:

Are you looking for a serene and intimate spot to share these most magical moments?

Head to Mount Rainier National Park in the early morning or late afternoon and enjoy a quiet picnic by Reflection Lake.

Soak up the soft light and tranquil surroundings, and celebrate with a horse-drawn carriage ride around the lake. 

3. Snoqualmie Falls:

Another one for the adventurous at heart. This powerful waterfall and its lush forests will take your loved one’s breath away.

Visit in spring or early summer when the waterfall is at its strongest for ultimate drama, and make the moment truly special with a private dinner or helicopter ride over the falls.

Just don’t forget your waterproofs!

4. Oak Harbor:

You can’t beat a good sunset, and they don’t get much better than the ones on display at Oak Harbor in the summertime.

This utterly charming seaside town on Whidbey Island is ideal for anyone looking for a slice of the slow life.

So relax, unwind, and sweep them off their feet with a private sailboat ride and beachfront picnic.

Delightful!

5. Manito Park Gardens:

Romance will blossom among Manito Park Gardens’ manicured lawns, winding paths, and abundant flowers.

Surprise them with a picnic by the peaceful pond, or make your proposal one to remember with a classical music performance on the greenery. 

6. Ohme Gardens:

Mesmerizing waterfalls, showstopping views, tranquil pools,  and towering trees, these gardens have got it all!

There are countless secluded spots to pop the big question away from the crowds, plus private wine tastings and garden tours available for those looking to keep the festivities going. 

7. Lake Crescent:

Nestled in the Olympic National Park, Lake Crescent’s crystal clear waters and stunning mountain views make it an ideal spot for a private and intimate proposal.

Arrange a relaxing private boat ride or turn the heat up with a hike to the nearby hot springs. 

8. The Space Needle:

Walk in Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan’s footsteps, and propose up amongst the clouds with spectacular views of Seattle’s skyline and the surrounding mountains.

What could be more glamorous than the city lights twinkling in the early evening?

How about a private dinner with fireworks? Talk about going off with a bang!

9. Lake Union:

Lake Union is not only beautiful, but it’s also one of the most exciting bodies of water in North America!

This charming spot in the heart of Seattle is best enjoyed in the summer, and to make the moment even more unique, why not arrange a private boat ride or seaplane tour?

10. Kerry Park:

If the panoramic views of the city skyline and iconic Space Needle weren’t enough, this park is bursting with beautiful trees and plants.

We recommend hiring a private photographer and arriving in comfort and style in your very own limousine!

11. Dog Mountain:

‘So where did you guys get engaged?’ ‘Oh, you know, on a mountain!’

This spot in the Columbia River Gorge boasts rugged terrain and stunning views. Surprise them with a picnic in the wildflowers.

12. Maple Pass:

Everyone loves seeing the leaves change from green to golden brown, and Maple Pass in the North Cascades National Park is ideal for a cozy fall proposal.

Take a leisurely hike, or make their heart soar with a private helicopter ride over the mountains.

13. San Juan Islands:

If peace and quiet are top of your list, The San Juan Islands are a must-visit.

Enjoy a romantic dinner on the beach with their favorite bottle of wine, take a leisurely stroll by the water, or surprise them with a private sailboat ride as the sun sets.

Just dreamy!

14. Ruby Beach:

Two words: sea stacks. These ancient, geological landforms will make the perfect backdrop for this most magical of occasions!

So indulge in a private picnic or bonfire under the stars to make the most of the gloriously rugged Ruby Beach.

15. Mount Storm King:

Don’t let the name fool you; the summer weather is truly glorious atop Mount Storm King. Standing pretty at over 4,500 feet, this gentle giant offers unspoiled views of the surrounding mountains and lakes.

Then, after presenting them with their ring on top of the world, you’ll float in the air!

A Promise of Commitment 

A promise ring is a beautiful choice if you're not quite at the engagement stage but still yearn to express your dedication to one another.

A promise ring embodies a pledge of loyalty and faithfulness, representing various facets of your shared life as a couple. For example, it can symbolize monogamy, a collective future, or a commitment to love and support each other.

Promise rings provide a meaningful way for couples to convey their affection without the expectations of proposals or engagements.

These rings can be exchanged at any stage in a relationship, marking the blossoming connection between two individuals. A promise ring highlights the depth of a relationship and the willingness to grow together in devotion.

When selecting a promise ring, finding one that captures your partner's unique taste and personality is essential. The ring can be a minimalist band or feature a delicate gemstone crafted from cubic zirconia. The ring's symbolic significance is paramount, representing the love and commitment shared between the couple.

Imagine creating a lasting memory in Washington by presenting your partner with a token of your unwavering love - it's all about being ready and sure of what you want!
