Wedding Proposal Ideas in Newport Beach, CA

How We Met

We met while we were both in graduate school at Yale. I went to USC for undergrad and she went to UCLA (rivalry schools). We have had so many vacations together to different cities (Paris, Budapest, Nice, Hawaii, San Diego, San Francisco, Austin, Houston, New York, Philadelphia, etc.). We love traveling and food.

How They Asked

I surprised Megha on a boat in Newport Beach harbor. We were visiting from the East Coast and told her we were going to head out on a boat that afternoon! Once we got there, our friends and family were waiting on the boat with a UCLA/USC themed floral arbor to represent our rival schools. Our football teams actually played that day! Megha loves Christmas, so we added hanging ornaments to the arbor with lots of photos inside. Once we walked down our rose petal aisle, I had a speech prepared before I proposed! We then took a cruise around the harbor for a cocktail hour with all our friends and family!
