Big Sur Proposal | Pink Lilys, chocolate cheesecake, and a spectacular Big Sur view. Those were the hints Joseph gave us while planning his secret surprise picnic proposal to Lori. Escaping the hustle and bustle of Silicon Valley, Joseph decided to bring Lori down the coast for a bit of much needed R&R.
It was a beautiful partly cloudy day and you could see the fog bank just hovering a few hundred feet off the coast. A bit breezy with a slight chill in the air, we stood atop one of of the highest points on the coast side waiting for their arrival. Lori walked to the top in spite of wearing high heels (what a trooper!), in promise of one of the best views Big Sur had to offer.
Walking hand in hand, Joseph led her to the most GORGEOUS lookout points on earth. Holding her tightly because that California sunshine wasn’t doing it job in keeping her warm, they just melted into one another. He turned to her, dropped down on one knee, and you could hear her gasp of excitement and disbelief. Was this really happening she was thinking! It was real and completely magical!
After our introductions, we guided them down to the beach where it would be “less windy” was our reasoning, and there awaited her second surprise. She gasped again, this time realizing he had all her favorites waiting. They popped champagne, toasted to the future, cuddled amongst a beach cove, and watched the sky change colors as the sun dipped behind the clouds. Congratulations Joseph and Lori!!!
