The proposal: Mark and I LOVE Disneyland. He surprised me and bought us annual passes for our 2 year anniversary. (Feb2012) I am a nursing student at Loma Linda University and we had just finished finals week and he very casually asked me if we wanted to go to Disneyland that weekend to celebrate. Throughout the day we didn't really ride any rides. We walked and talked and just enjoyed the day, but around 3:30 in the afternoon he told me he wanted to "go to dinner" at 4. So we left the park and he led me to the rose gardens where they hold there weddings. There is a gazebo there and he walked me down the aisle up to the gazebo. As we go closer, I realized that my mom was there and so were our good friends Ron and Jamie. Mark set our stuff down and proceeded to get down on one knee and open the most perfect little box with the ring I have been wanting for quite a while. Mark has always had a hard time expressing himself; he's very conservative, but the words he said to me were absolutely perfect. Of course I started crying and instantly said YES and wrapped my arms around him. (My dad tried so hard to be there, but couldn't because he had to work.) Jamie was able to catch our special moment on video and get great pictures of Mark proposing. I love being able to look back on those memories and have them for the rest of our lives together. We then went to dinner together with my mom and our friends and celebrated together.
About their engagement session: Our engagement session was SO much fun! Kristen is amazing! I was nervous that we may have felt a little embarrassed for the shoot, but Kristen made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. We did two looks. Mark and I have always loved fishing together and Kristen had the perfect idea of taking pictures on the lake, in a boat, with fishing poles! I instantly loved the idea. It was so fun being able to do something different and actually be out on the lake taking photos! Our second look was a fairytale forest look. It was so fun trying to act magical, but I love the way our photos came out. They were exactly what I imagined. When we found Kristen I wanted her to be our wedding photographer because I love the romantic, soft, fairytale look she goes for. She makes you feel amazing, like a princess really. She adds the extra sparkle that every girl wants and captures true love perfectly on camera!
