Lori and Chris- Newport Fashion Island and Corona del Mar Engagement

It was at Taco Surf in Sunset beach where they first met. She thought he was super cute and he really wanted to call her, but he didn’t get her number. “So if I would have called her, it would have been stalking,” Chris said. So they kept asking their friends about each other. Eventually they texted, but neither had the nerves to pursue anything. (The great love stories always start like this.)
Then Fourth of July weekend came around. Chris was camping in San Clemente with friends. Lori came to join them. Little did she know, she would be meeting his whole family. They spent the day flirting, texting and playing in the water. Chris’ birthday was coming up and what he wanted for his birthday was for Lori to come to Lake Havasu at the end of the month. Of course she said, “Yes.” But before Lori left to go home, Chris told her he wanted to spend more time with her before his birthday. That first date ended up being a very long conversation in front of a Claim Jumper. The restaurant had closed because they had been talking too long!!! No dinner, but instead a first kiss!
Two years later, on that same San Clemente Beach where their fireworks had started, Chris asked Lori to marry him.
