Jerod with JAM Entertainment suggests the beach near Vikingsholm in Emerald Bay

Vikingsholm Castle is a 38-room mansion that is long considered as one of the finest and most incredible examples of Scandinavian architecture in the United States. It’s located within Emerald Bay State Park, which spans just over 1500 acres and geographically south of D.L. Bliss State Park. Vikingsholm Castle was built in 1929 by Mrs. Lora Knight, and still holds some of its original features.

Marci of One Fine Day Events suggests proposing on the beach at Sand Harbor or creating a really intimate moment in your rental home.

We hope these locations provide some wonderful inspiration for your upcoming engagements and we can’t wait to begin seeing all the proposals! Once you have those photos, we’d love you to share those proposals here.
