Hidden deep within the the vineyards of Bernardus Lodge, a romantic table was set up for an afternoon of wine tasting. Adam has been planning this Carmel Valley proposal for months, and could not wait to surprise Torey! Thank goodness we were on site, because Adam started 20 minutes early! Boy was he excited! Rachel and I stood rows away from the table, standing as still as statues, trying to not make a sound. When you’re hiding for a proposal, you feel everything in amplified x 1,000,000. The leaves crushing beneath our feet, it was hot mid-day sun, a bee wasn’t leaving me alone, and I felt like I could sneeze at any moment. Was it really that severe? No, it’s just when we’re in that moment, hearts beating out of our chests, peeking through vines waiting for his move, it felt like it. Rachel and I were communicating through hand signs and she was waiting for my move.
The maitre d came to the table and began pouring wine. As soon as he left, I could see Adam take a little black box from his jacket pocket. I signaled Rachel, and simultaneously we peered from behind vines and captured Adam down on one knee. It was the most amazing Carmel Valley proposal ever, and a day Torey will never forget! Once we had been spotted, we roamed the stunning rose garden for a few portraits, before they headed back to their vineyard oasis. What a dream!
Let us help create the proposal of her dreams! View some of our past proposals to get some ideas on what we’ve done, but skies the limit! From a Carolina sunrise on the beach, California sunset along the cliffs, golden vineyards of Napa to Carmel Valley, historic cobblestone streets of Charleston, ancient mossy oak trees of a southern plantation, to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Together we will curate your perfect setting!
