A Big Sur proposal is still our local favorite! With all the news of closures in the Big Sur area due to recent storms, we’re excited to share that there are still TONS of amazing locations for not only proposals, but engagements and elopements as well! We’ve actually been spending at least a few days a week in Big Sur, and we must say, after all the rains, it’s more beautiful than ever!
Rob and Chrissy flew in from Cincinnati to drive the gorgeous Highway One coastline, but Chrissy had no idea what Rob had up his sleeve! They were driving through Big Sur right around sunset, conveniently of course, and decide to walk this random path that Rob just happened to know about. It was a downhill wining trail that took them over a walking bridge, straight for the overlook. It’s one of those places you just have to experience. It’s a bit secluded, just far enough from the highway to loose sight of the cars, and all you can hear is the waves below and the occasional seagull. If you’re lucky, you will catch a glimpse of the flocks of pelicans that fly overhead in formation, and at certain times a year the whales migrate through this area, and you can actually see them breaching. It’s breathtaking!
Rachel and I were in position, just your average tourists watching the sunset. We saw Rob and Chrissy making their way closer to our “X mark the spot” area we had discussed earlier with Rob. They stood there cuddling, hand in hand, as Chrissy laid her head on Rob’s shoulder. I could just imagine what she was thinking, “Big Sur at sunset, and I’m standing here with the man of my dreams. How could anything get better than this?” Oh Chrissy but it can! We watched as Rob took her hands and pulled her in close. They were talking and laughing, but we were just at a far enough away distance to not understand what they were saying. Slowly we watched Rob pull a little black box from his back pocket, look deep into Chrissy’s eyes, and go down on one knee. With a sequel of excitement and a jump of joy, Chrissy wrapped her arms around Rob’s neck and they hugged, and hugged, and hugged some more! Proposal success!
Congratulations you two! We are SO excited to hear to hear more about wedding plans!
