How We Met

We were matched as partners in my best friend’s wedding last November. His cousin was marrying my best friend. Our first photo together is us walking down the aisle — I’m in a white dress and he’s in a tux. We spent the weekend with family and friends in Ojai and were on a date within the week when we got back to LA. Cue the rom-com story!

How They Asked

I thought we could be getting engaged in Cabo in November and then he canceled our trip! So I brushed it off and thought it might happen on New Year’s Eve. We then planned this year-end trip to Cabo before the holidays. Little did I know Freddy had been planning our proposal for months. We went down to the beach before sunset to take photos together like we’d done every day on the trip — nothing new here. On our way down to the sand, I saw a professional photographer taking photos of the sunset — I mentioned to Freddy that we should move out of her way.

Little did I know, he had hired Daniela, our photographer, to capture his proposal. As I got ready to take our first picture together he walked up to me and joked, “this looks like a good place to propose” — I was about to brush him off when I saw the ring box in his hand. Epic.
