Jamie and Mike

how we met

Jamie and Mike met while working at the same school district. Mike had set sights on Jamie for a while, but he wasn’t sure if asking her out was a good idea since they worked together. He thought if she turned him down, he would still have to see her everyday, and that would be a little awkward! So he waited until the last day of his job to ask her out, thinking if she said no, he would not have to see her ever again. Talk about going out with a bang! But lucky for Mike, Jamie said yes! And the rest, as they say, was history.

how they asked

Fast forward a few years, on April 20th, 2019, Mike and Jamie joined their close friends for a day of wine tastings at one of their favorite wineries in Temecula, CA. Jamie thought it was just another double date and took it upon herself to research different wineries and create a detailed itinerary for the day. Little did she know that Mike had set up the whole day for their proposal.

When they arrived at Fazeli Winery (one of the couple’s longtime favorite spots), Mike said he wanted to give their friends a tour of the wedding venue at the winery. When they made it to the ceremony space, Mike took Jamie’s hand and walked her down the aisle. At the first step of the alter Mike stopped and dropped to one knee and surprised her with a proposal!
