One week and a day ago, my life changed for the better… the man of my dreams, my boyfriend for the last four and a half years, ask me to be his wife!!!!
Here’s how it started…
In my last post I told my readers how Wayne and I were doing a road trip vacation throughout California. First stop, San Francisco, then vineyard hopping in Napa, pit stop to see Big Sur, then a couple nights in Venice with a blog shoot in Malibu, and ending the trip in Downtown Los Angeles.
The day before my birthday, we were staying in Venice Beach, and Wayne had a work dinner the night of my birthday. We decided that we would be celebrating my birthday the night before. First stop of the night was a blog shoot with our friend Khan in Malibu, California. We went to a secluded beach called Point Dume and I had three dresses I wanted to shoot in.
I was initially wearing the white off the shoulder blue floral embroidered dress, and when walking to the entry of the beach / cliff there was an entire patch of yellow wild flowers. I figured I would save my white and yellow daisy dress for last when we climber back up the stairs from the beach.
After a few poses in the white and blue dress, we made our way down to the private beach and I changed into the pale pink off the shoulder maxi dress. I had previously told Wayne that was my favorite dress I brought with me, and what I’d want to wear to my birthday dinner at our favorite restaurant, NOBU Malibu.
After a few different shots and posts in my floral maxi, I was told to walk toward the water, pause for a couple seconds, turn around slowly and walk back toward the camera. I did just that and as I was walking back from the water, Wayne started walking toward me. All I could think was, “What are you doing?? You’re in my shot!” 🙂 From there Wayne went on to tell me he had a question to ask me, that there is no where else he’d rather be than on this beautiful beach with me. Next thing I know, Wayne is down on his knee, showing me the most beautiful, sparkly yellow gold diamond engagement ring and asking ME to be his wife!!!! I was the best day of my entire life. Seeing how handsome (and nervous) he looked just made my heart gush!!
After a few shots of us together in my final dress, the gorgeous off the shoulder daisy dress, we drove to NOBU Malibu and we were seated right on the water, drank refreshing cocktails, and ate fresh seafood! It was the most perfect day and so glad to share it with each of you!
