I love surprise proposals! They are stressful, yes, but the joy it brings is so worth it! I got to work with the very-talented and stylist designer, Jillian from To Be Designed. Isn’t her set up so beautiful?!!

How he did it:

So Raj has had the ring since October 2016. He contacted Jillian whom then referred him to me. We started planning in the beginning of March.

The planned date was April 30th, they both flew from out of state, he flew a few days earlier without telling her. She was under the impression he was still working and they were both flying into town and meeting at the airport once arrived. He had to take his luggage BACK to the airport the day she arrived and pretend to be getting his luggage once they met up (sneaky sneaky).

Jillian and I arrived at Coronado beach and she put up the set up and I placed the candles (don’t want to say I helped cause she did pretty much all the work haha she’s amazing at that)

We start to see them come walking down the board walk and onto the beach in our direction. Jillian hits play on Raj’s picked out song for when they walk up. I then walk closer to the board walk but I was like the ONLY person standing there so I pretended to photograph the rocks (I know, I know, I’m that good). Meanwhile I hear Jillian yelling at me saying “they are right there!!!” I yelled back “I KNOW!!” hahah

I don’t think these two could be any cuter together. This, people! THIS is what true love looks like! Honestly, this couple gave me all the feels hanging out with them at their engagement session and witnessing how much they love and adore each other. To make it even more perfect, I fell in love with their love story. I’m not about to spill the beans on their story just yet, but I’ll just leave it as they’ve liked each other for quite some time but timing was not on their side…until now!

 

Congrats Michelle and Joe! So excited to capture your special day in 1 month!!! EEKK!!!
