how we met

Well, so how did we really meet… Jeanette and myself have had numerous mutual longterm friends but somehow never ended up crossing each other’s paths. So I did what every man would do in this case, seeing how God couldn’t get the job done for me… I added her on Facebook! Subtle comments led to subtle messages back and forth, and repeat denials of me asking her to hang out. I tried it all, from “let’s have some drinks” to “let’s take the boat out”. She denied me every which way, in the nicest form, until one day I got a message saying she was going out with some friends and I should stop by and say “hi”. Ever since that night neither of our lives have been the same.

how he asked

How do you pull off an amazing surprise like this when you girlfriend is the nosiest on earth and you yourself are the worst at keeping a secret? It was by far one of the hardest things I had to do ever in my life. Luckily, her other ring had lost a small stone, so I was able to get her ring size when I took it in to get it replaced.

We love Santa Cruz and go there regularly for vacation. With her expressing that she had always dreamed of a beach wedding I thought why not start this incredible journey where she wants to start the rest of our lives. So I planned a trip to Santa Cruz to stay in our favorite hotel and asked if she would like to do “anniversary photos”. She thought that would be a great idea. I then booked Tony and Lisa, knowing that they would be a great fit for the occasion. While in Santa Cruz, they were able to help me coordinate and make sure the secret stayed a secret. The four of us met on the beach where we started the photos. Tony then asked her to do some solo photos so I could prepare myself.

After grabbing the ring that would not come out of the box, I popped the big question!! Tony and Lisa did a great job at not only taking amazing photos but making sure she felt extremely special on one of the biggest days of our lives.
