Los Angeles Arboretum Engagement: David loves Tay

Sometimes a Love Story isn’t instant. It’s not in that first look. A phone call isn’t made that night and a date is not planned the next day. Sometimes, love takes its sweet time, because it knows it will be special.

David was at a bar when Tay walked by. His friend called the friend Tay was with and suddenly they were all hanging out. Tay thought he was a nice guy and David played it safe by waiting a month to call her. Then it would take six months to actually go out on a date. That date would be at Keegans for his birthday, the same place they had met.

If it first the he played it safe, David stopped playing by the rules. Not that in love, there is any. He was writing poetry, drawing for Tay and telling her how he was always thinking about her. Tay saw a man who was extremely kind and giving. She was so grateful for him and thanked God he had come into her life when he did. It was in the hardest moment in her life that David refused to leave her alone. He was there to lean on.

David loved Tay for her strength, her determination and the love she gives to everyone. She was an amazing mother to her children. He of course had to propose to the woman that he loved with everyone present.

Tay thought she was going to hang out at the beach with a friend. Suddenly, friends and family appeared. Each person gave her a rose. More people, more roses. Tay was confused and crying. She had several dozens in her arms. She could hear music. The song, “Look at me, I’m in Love,” was playing. Everyone was yelling for her to turn around. She did. David was on one knee.

    Redondo Beach Pier Engagement Photography: Michael loves Karah

    Neither had any intention of meeting anyone that night. But fate had brought them both to a bar in Camden called Underworld. There on the dance floor, the inevitable happened. They saw each other. The Universe had brought Karah 5,000 miles away from her home to meet Michael. She was in England, studying fashion. Within minutes, Michael and Karah were gravitating towards each other. And as if they had known each other before, they kissed.

    Michael brought her a drink, got her info and left. He was the designated driver. The next day, Karah woke up to a message and a dinner invitation. It was on that first date that Michael knew she was the one. He did not want to be apart from her. But within a month, Karah was leaving to return home.

    Michael bought an airplane ticket and Karah had an awkward conversation with her parents that she was bringing home someone for them to meet. Understandably, there was a bit of concern. Then they met him and saw why Karah did not doubt that they would always be together.

    Michael loved Karah. She was the most selfless and empathetic person he had ever met. She had a heart of gold. There is not a day that goes by that he doesn’t step back and and appreciate how lucky he is.

    A long distance relationship had begun. Michael proposed in Boston in 2018. It was a very in the moment proposal. Then the pandemic happened. They were married in a simple court wedding in London. Of course, family and friends were not able to attend and so a second wedding has been planned.

    A second wedding meant a second proposal. There on the Redondo Pier, a place so enjoyed by Karah’s family, Michael got down on one knee as the sun was setting and asked her to marry him. He gave her a second ring. Karah, of course said, ” Yes!!!,”….again.

        Pasadena City Hall Engagement: Jared loves Sharon

        Sharon had just moved to LA from the Midwest and was looking for someone with who to go out on an adventure. There on Coffee Meets Bagel was a match. Sharon and Jared would not go out for the traditional cup of coffee, but for Boba Milk Tea at Bubble Republic. It would become their favorite bubble tea spot. The flavor of their favorite drink, Panna Cotta Milk Tea, would ultimately describe their relationship…. savory and sweet.

        Jared loved that Sharon was easy to talk to. She was beautiful, but not stuck up. He soon learned that besides sweet, she was also considerate and spontaneous. Sharon also thought that Jared was sweet, but also adventurous and hilarious. He constantly made her smile and laugh. It would only be on their second date that Sharon knew he was the one. Jared had taken her to a school dance performance, where he introduced her to his students and coworkers. They were all fond of him and she felt treasured. Jared knew she was the one when she showed how much she cared about him and put him as her priority before anything.

        Soon they were going on adventures together and trying all the different places to eat that Sharon had on her Yelp account.

        Jared had wanted to propose in Spain, but travel during Covid was not an option. So at Mission San Juan Capistrano… in front of Spanish style buildings, Jared asked Sharon to marry him. It didn’t matter that they were not in Europe. Sharon said yes to the man she loved and to a life time of adventures with him by her side.

          Mt. Baldy Engagement Photos / Pedro loves Jocelyn

          Most couples go to the movies for their first date, but Pedro and Jocelyn actually met at the theater where they worked. Pedro saw a beautiful girl with brown curly hair, a great smile and eyes that he loved. Unfortunately, Jocelyn was dating someone else, and so, they just became friends. And even when Jocelyn’s other relationship had ended, they stayed friends.

          They would hang out, going to Disneyland, trying new foods and even going on random drives to Malibu. They would talk about their families, past relationships and about life. Pedro was Jocelyn’s guy friend… a guy friend who liked her, but Jocelyn didn’t realize it or was just not interested.

          It was on a trip to Canada with a group of friends that the realization literally hit her. Everyone was play fighting and so Pedro and Jocelyn joined in the fun. It was there, where when the lamp light shined on Pedro’s face, that all she could do was stare. It was something about the glow on his face, that told her, she liked him more than a friend. But as most love stories go, nothing changed. In fact, they got upset at each other on the trip and drove back to California, not in the happiest of moods.

          Jocelyn knew she was upset even more because she realized she liked him. They met up and told each other how they felt. But Jocelyn did not want to ruin the friendship. She did not want to lose her guy friend. But Pedro was in love with the funny, caring girl who loved to travel. So he persisted and convinced her to give their relationship a try.

          Fast forward 7 years in this love story. Pedro had decided that he would propose at the Grand Canyon. It had been the place of their first road trip together alone, and for them it was magical and mysterious. It was getting dark and so Pedro made Jocelyn and his brother speed walk. He told them that there was a glowing waterfall that needed to be seen in the sun. There was none. Jocelyn finally reached Pedro. He hugged her, started reading his notes and got on one knee to propose. His brother was recording, still wondering where the waterfall was. Jocelyn had officially lost her guy friend that day, but she said, “Of course,” to the best friend she would marry.
