Creating the Perfect Proposal: Popping the Question in Fernandina Beach

It’s no secret that Amelia Island is imbued with romance. From its historic architecture to fine dining to stunning beaches, this enchanting place is the perfect location to pop the question! Though there are myriad proposal locations in Fernandina Beach, here are some of our favorite ideas! 

The concept of a romantic picnic dates back to the 18th and 19th centuries, particularly during the Victorian era. Picnics celebrate nature and a simpler way of life, while providing an idyllic, secluded setting. These days, Luxe Picnics by Les offers stunning, curated picnics customized to each client’s preferred theme and colors, right here in Fernandina Beach! Whether on the beach, in a park, or even on the grounds of the Williams House, the picnics are artfully designed with every detail seen to. Each package offers food as well as optional add-ons like decadent desserts, photography, and more from hand-picked local vendors. 

If adventure is more your style, Amelia Island Horseback Riding offers proposal rides, during which you can drop to one knee as the sun sets or rises and ask for your sweetheart’s hand. There’s no romance quite like the natural beauty Mother Nature can provide, and the coastline is a perfect backdrop for such an important moment. Amelia Island Horseback Riding has helped many couples with their proposal plans, offering private rides and optional photography packages.

For the nature lovers, consider a private charter from Amelia Island River Cruises for your proposal. Whether it’s a sunset cruise or morning excursion, the scenic waterways provide a romantic setting. Pack a cooler of bubbly, some food, and let the celebration begin as playful dolphins leap next to the catamaran or wild horses stand on the shore. All private charters can be customized to your needs.

We’re honored that the Williams House has also served as a proposal location! One can’t deny the romance of the majestic live oak in our courtyard or the charming, one of a kind porch of the main house. Imagine relaxing by the fire in our luxurious robes or enjoying a spa bathroom complete with a whirlpool tub. By proposing here at our inn, your love story will only add to its history of enchantment. 

There are many more romantic locations and experiences in the area, and no matter where you choose to propose, the Williams House offers luxury and unmatched hospitality. Book a stay to ensure that before, during, and after your proposal, you’ll be pampered and celebrated properly. Reach out today to discover how the Amelia Island Williams House can help you create the proposal of your dreams!
