Ida and Jonathan

Ida's Proposal in Briar Rose Winery in Temecula

How We Met

Jonathan and I just happened to be in Las Vegas as last minute add-one for a mutual friend’s Vegas trip. When I met him, I was in my PJs and ready to go get pancakes so I didn’t really pay much attention to him. At first I thought he was quite annoying because he would talk so loud and was very outgoing. I am more of a reserved quiet type of person. Somehow we stayed in touch after the trip and became friends. We hung out for the first time just the two of us and immediately we felt that connection we have never felt before. It was strange but it feels almost as if I have known him forever. There were no awkward moments and we quickly became best friends.

How They Asked

Jonathan told me he was taking me a Disney inspired winery in Temecula. He told me it was going to be a photoshoot because we have never had professional photos done. I was a little suspicious but I did not want to get my hopes up because there were many times in the past when I thought he was going to propose but he didn’t. During the photoshoot, he was acting really nervous and kept bending down to clean his shoe. An hour has passed and I thought to myself “well if he was going to do it, he would have done it already.” The photographer had me turn my back to him for a pose then she immediately told me to turn back around. He was one on knew and I immediately bursted into tears. It was a private special moment I will never forget.
