Leanna and Andrew

Engagement Proposal Ideas in Torrey Pines

How We Met

We met when we were 12 years old in middle school. We went on a triple date and he texted me asking if he could hold my hand while we were sitting next to each other and even after I said “yes” he was still too nervous to make a move. Our middle school romance only last 2 weeks but he remained my very best friend for the next 7 years and 12 years later he’s the one I choose to spend the rest of my life with! His mom always says that the reason it never worked out with any other girl was that his heart has always belonged to me.

How They Asked

We have a bunch of friends who are photographers so we have had our pictures taken numerous times. One of our friends asked if we wanted to go take pictures at Torrey Pines (which I later found out was all part of Andrew’s plan). We were facing back-to-back and our friend said “go” and when I turned around Andrew was on one knee. Of course, I said yes!!!

We went back home right after to go to dinner with my parents (or so I thought) and all of our friends and family were standing in the middle of the street to throw us the most amazing surprise party!! He even flew my best friend down from Sacramento. It was a night I will never forget!
