Engagement Proposal Ideas in San Diego, California

How We Met

We met at our local church back in March of 2017 and connected in a lot of very cool ways. Our sense of humor, adventure, and love for community and people really connected the both of us and it kicked off a 9-month long friendship. This then transitioned into a dating relationship and I knew relatively quickly that she was the one I wanted to marry.

How He Asked

Being an Air Force Captain, my Air Force job took me to San Diego, CA for 2 weeks. My girlfriend decided she wanted to come, hang out for a little bit since she has the summer off work. She flew in on Friday, June 22, 2018, and I told her I wanted to check out some trails and fly my drone with a friend around the Torrey Pines area.

Once I got to the trail, I set up my drone, flew it around a little bit and took her to the edge of the cliff where I popped the question. I filmed my entire proposal on my drone and had a friend take pictures from far away. It couldn’t have been more perfect!
