Stacy and Chris

Stacy and Chris's Engagement in Montecito, California

How We Met

Chris and I had our first date at a coffee shop in the OC and we talked for hours on end upon that first meet up. It truly was instantaneous sparks and I knew from the first time we met that he was the one.

How They Asked

As an elementary school principal and Chris a physician, we don’t get many chances to truly travel anywhere or take much vacation time off. So when Chris told me he had planned a special weekend trip to Montecito for my birthday I was ecstatic! We stayed at the stunning Rosewood Miramar Beach Resort and the property was gorgeous making for the most perfect intimate getaway. We had a birthday dinner later in the evening at Caruso’s planned for me so I spent some time getting dolled up.

Where to Propose in Montecito, California

After getting ready I stepped outside my hotel room and there was Chris on bended knee with a ring in hand! All I remember is him saying,” Stacy, you’re the love of my life and I’ve never been so sure of anything more…” cue the waterworks. I don’t even know that I said yes, I just remember crying tears of joy. At the restaurant, they had champagne and a special dessert waiting for us as well. When we returned to our hotel room there were also beautiful flowers that my best friends has gotten sent to my hotel room! It was truly the most special night of my life and one I will never forget.
