How he asked: I work for my step-dad’s NHRA drag racing super team and we raced Valentine’s Day weekend in Pomona. We decided that we would take an extra day and have a belated Valentine’s Day celebration in Laguna Beach. We spent our day off at lunch at the Deck in Laguna Beach, catching up with friends before heading back to the Ritz Carlton for a photo shoot we had planned with Flytographer. We had stayed at the Ritz Carlton Laguna Nigel a few months prior and fell in love with the resort. I had thought it would be a fun idea to do a photo shoot there since it had become one of our favorite places, little did I know I had a small hand in planning my own engagement. We were down on the beach at sunset taking photos and all of a sudden Chad got down on one knee. As he was on one knee I didn’t let him get a word out before I exclaimed… “what are you doing!?!”. I was so shocked, he then told me how much he loved me and asked me to marry him.

From the bride: Enjoy the process and everything that comes along with it. One thing we are so thankful we did was that throughout the wedding day we both reminded ourselves to look around and soak it all up. Everyone says it but it is true, the day goes by in the blink of an eye.
