Enjoying my engagement photos by my dear friend Kayla!!!!
Location: The Rock House (Joshua Tree)
Photographer: Kayla G.
Enjoying our beautiful June engagement party hosted at the home of my parents. Here are a few photos. Unfortunately, we had so much fun we forgot about pictures during the event!
I also wanted to share photos of the gift bags/boxes for the bridal party. The bridesmaids received a teal beach tote filled with fun items, including, an oversized, super soft, palm beach towel from Nordstroms.
For the groomsmen, hand made wood boxes inscribed with the groomsmen names and wedding date. We discovered them on ETSY. Although we had to wait 5 weeks for their arrival, it was so worth it. Inside was a tie clip from Tie Bar and some miniature liquor bottles.
Exciting news…. I AM OFFICIALLY ENGAGED!!!!
After 5 years, my boyfriend asked me to be his wife.
May 5th started with Justin surprising me with breakfast, church and a shopping spree. Next, I enjoyed a manicure and lunch at my favorite Italian restaurant. We then headed down to the beach at Crystal Cove. Here I spied a beautiful tropical picnic (as we are considering Fiji for our honeymoon!!!). Flower petals lead to a blanket filled with gorgeous bouquets of Hawaiian flowers, pillows, blankets, candles, chocolate covered strawberries, apple cider and my favorite angel food cake. After proposing with an absolutely breathtaking ring that Justin had designed, my two dogs came running around the corner to complete the surprise. It started to sprinkle as we walked the beach but the clouds parted and the Lord blessed us with a perfect rainbow!
Justin’s siblings help him implement this wonderful experience. Truly one of the happiest days of my life!! Thanks Victoria for these photos to remember our day!
