Mt. Baldy Engagement: Edgar loves Monica

Monica looked beautiful in her white dress. The nerves started the moment she got to the church. She started to walk down the aisle, but suddenly stopped. Everyone was looking. She was scared. She couldn’t do it. She stopped walking towards the altar. There was no one up there that she wanted to walk up to. She turned to leave. Plot twist. Monica was the flower girl at my wedding. She was two years old. Nothing will be holding her back as she walks down the aisle to the man she loves.

Monica received Edgar’s profile from Coffee Meets Bagel and she was intrigued. There were pictures of him at the Colosseum in Rome which showed that just like her, he liked to travel. He had gone to USC, where she had gotten her Masters. All this and he was attractive. She clicked. He messaged.

After verifying with mutual friends that the other was not a creep, they went on their first date to Saint & Second in Belmont Shore. The moment Monica walked in, Edgar knew she was the one that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. He loved that she was soft spoken, that she was intelligent and of course beautiful.

That first date included nerves, a little food, Moscow Mules and an amazing conversation. They had so much in common. They were both first generation college students. They had both grown up playing soccer. They both shared the same family values. Monica didn’t want the date to end. But the car meter’s time was up.

Monica soon knew that he was the partner she wanted. He balanced her and made her complete. Together, they were a great team, their values aligned and the bond was amazing. This was the man she wanted as a partner and a father to her children.

They went ring shopping together. Monica found the ring she loved, but it was just too expensive. They continued shopping. After 3 or 4 shopping appointments, Edgar was frustrated and confessed that he had already ordered a ring and planned to propose on the their upcoming trip to Cancun. Now, Monica would not be surprised. Leave it to a man in love to make sure a woman is happy. Edgar went to the jeweler and asked him to email him that the ring, unfortunately, would not be ready for the trip. He did. Edgar showed Monica the email and gave her and Oscar-worthy performance. She knew it would be a beautiful trip… but without a proposal.

On the third night of their vacation, they walked along the beach, as a gorgeous pink sunset draped the sky, Monica was thinking that things could not be more perfect when Edgar got down on one knee and asked Monica to be his forever. He held the original ring and her heart. Shocked and excited, Monica said, “Yes,” to the man she loved.

    Oak Glen Engagement Photography: Thomas loves Hope

    Destiny is one that will make sure paths cross. However, what crossed Thomas and Hope’s path was a train. They were both late to work, parked a mile away from their facing car dealerships. They stood on the sidewalk and exchanged awkward glances. Not a single word was spoken, but destiny had made her point. It would be two months later, when they would run into each other again at a local restaurant. This time, Thomas worked up a enough courage to say hello and to introduce himself… and of course stalked and became Hope’s friend on Facebook. With Hope he was quiet, but Thomas was showing all of his family and friends her pictures and telling them that he would do anything for a date with her.
    A few weeks later, destiny brought them together at a mutual friend’s party. Now Thomas worked up enough courage to ask her out. What was supposed to be a couple of hours together at the Aquarium of the Pacific was not enough. Soon they were eating lunch on the Santa Monica Pier. Then the afternoon became evening, and they found themselves driving to Ventura to see Thomas’ father for dinner. During the drive, Thomas texted his mother, “I’m going to marry this girl.”
    Fast forward a year and half later. Thomas surprised Hope with a little getaway to La Jolla. Hope walked out to enjoy a breathtaking sunset from the balcony. She turned to find Thomas on one knee. An awkward glance, a first hello, a brave first date… Thomas asked what he and Destiny had always wanted, “Will you spend the rest of your life with me?” She said, “Yes.”

      Oak Glen Photography: Phillip loves Jessica

      Philip walked into the restaurant where Jessica was celebrating her birthday. She didn’t know it then, but the nice guy who drove her home, who she thought was too young for her would be the most amazing present she would ever receive. It would take a year, but at another party, after a few drinks, they started talking. Philip would take her dancing at The Echo in L.A. for their first date. Jessica knew she had found the right guy with who she wanted to spend the rest of her life. She always felt comfortable with him. Hanging out was so easy and fun. Their love was so natural. They became parents and Phillip became an amazing father to their daughter. Phillip also knew there was no other for him. So as the song, Sextape played, in the middle of the mosh pit at a Deftones Concert…He got down on one knee and opened the box. Jessica said yes, to forever.

        Corona del Mar Engagement- Danny Loves Jackie

        Danny sold the cars and Jackie funded the deals. They talked on the phone and eventually they met. Danny asked her out, but Jackie did not want to mix business with pleasure and so she said, “No.” Yet… she missed him and would tell him. So Danny asked her out again. Once again he received the speech of how it was conflict to date because of work. So Danny let a month go by and lost touch until he sold another vehicle and once again he heard the words…”I missed you.” He asked her out again, adding the words…”as friends.” They met for lunch…”As friends,” and had a great time. The friendship date was over and the next one was real. Before going in to see the movie, Danny kissed her. Jackie’s response was, “What are you doing?” Danny answered, “Kissing you…Duh,” and kissed her again.
        Fast forward a year, an exact year of that first date…August 19th, 2013. At Disneyland, in front of the castle Danny proposed. Jackie cried..She would never miss him again. She said, “Yes.”
