FIND IT FAST
A beach proposal is our favorite! Proposals though can be a bit nerve racking, of course for the groom-to-be, but for us too! Always making sure everything is in place, that they arrive to the right location, on time without her getting suspicious, him feeling comfortable that we’re where we’re supposed to be, and most importantly, where he is supposed to stand for “the” magic down on one knee shot.
Well with Mike, he had it all planned out. They visited Monterey for the weekend with family and friends for a “dinner”, or so Amanda thought. Saturday afternoon she was picked up by a limo, filled with her closest girlfriends, for an adventurous scavenger hunt. Each clue she found, led her closer and closer to Mike. This was perfect! It allowed us to arrive early and actually meet Mike ahead of time, walk through everything, and actually show him everything he needed to ensure we captured Amanda’s dream beach proposal. What a genius idea!
The limo pulled up along the cliffs above, and girls just started pouring out. Rachel and I were in position and Mike was near the waters edge waiting for his first glimpse at his future wife. We didn’t want to turn around to give anything away, so we just looked towards Mike and this huge smile just came across his face. Amanda slowly made her way down the rocky edge and walked towards Mike, who was holding the last piece of the riddle. Next we knew he was down on one knee, and as her head shook yes, all the family and friends above us along the cliffs, erupted with joy! Whistles, hoots, hollers, clapping… What an amazing experience to celebrate this moment with all those most important to you!
Congratulations Mike and Amanda, we cannot wait to hear about wedding plans!
