First Home Proposal

“Brydon proposed to me as we were walking into our house together for the first time. I had no idea it would happen then. I loved how it happened! It really made our house a home from the get go.” [Photo provided by couple]
Epic California Proposal
Bretton Meyer (Bride-to-Be, June 2017)
“Mike’s dream was to ride the Pacific Coast Hwy on his Harley. I was over the moon when he asked if I was interested in doing the trip with him and I said “of course!” So we loaded up the motorcycle in the bed of our truck, drove to Las Vegas and unloaded the bike. We jumped on the bike and road to the Pacific Coast. Our plan was to spend the first evening in Newport Beach then head North to San Francisco.
Mike had another plan up his sleeve… Literally hidden in his vest pocket was my engagement ring! The drive on the motorcycle was breathtaking and so freeing. We finally reached the ocean as the sun was setting. We got off the bike and walked towards the ocean to dip our toes in the water. Hand in hand we walked, little did I know what was going to happen next. I felt hesitation in the pull of his hand, and turned around to find Mike down on one knee. He was holding the most beautiful ring I’ve ever seen!
He asked “Bretton Meyer, will you marry me?” Tears filled my eyes instantly, and I said “yes!” [Photos provided by couple]
