Koryna and Greg

Wedding Proposal Ideas in Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay

How We Met

We met in the beautiful Tiburon, CA. We both had moved to San Francisco in the summer of 2011, he moved from NYC and I had just graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. A year after having moved here I decided to take a girls trip with two of my single best friends to Sams Anchor Cafe. On the ferry there from SF I noticed a large group of guys, one is particular wearing very bold white pants. He caught my eye but I decided it was because of the pants and the sweater wrapped around his shoulders (not typical SF attire). At the cafe me and my girls friends could not find a place to sit while we waited for our reservation. We noticed the group of guys again and they had taken a large section of the tables outdoors. We asked if we could steal and few seats to which they said “no, but you can join us,” so we did. We spent the day with this group. We talked at length with all of the guys but at the end it was white pants who asked for my number. I agreed a bit reluctantly, not knowing white pants was going to change my life forever. We exchanged some flirty texts and met up that night where we exachanged our first kiss. Here we are 4 and a half year later and I love his white pants more than ever, can’t wait to meet him down the aisle in my white dress.

How He Asked

He surprised me with a weekend getaway to the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay. I thought this sounded very romantic so I will admit I thought he might just be popping the question. I was completely convinced otherwise when all of my friends joked About the same thing and how if in fact Greg was proposing this weekend that they would be upset to not have been involved. Saturday morning we woke up and played tennis and it was my idea to get ready and go on a little walk around the gorgeous property to take some pictures. He agreed and then told me we had brunch reservations as well. I got ready and we went on our walk.

Marriage Proposal Ideas in Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay

He headed straight to the beach where he got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. I said yes!! We then headed to brunch where all of my family from southern California, his family from New Jersey and all of our best friends from San Francisco were waiting to surprise us! They decorated this beautiful room at the Ritz and I have been glowing since then. He did everything perfectly and I couldn’t be happier!
