Meghan + Amir | Mission Carmel Basilica | Carmel Valley Ranch

Amir and I met through mutual friends while attending Foothill College.  We became close friends and made it official 6 months later.  After 7 years of dating, Amir's parents took us to Italy on a family vacation.  I was expecting a proposal, but after 4 days in Rome, a day trip to Capri and several perfect opportunities there was no proposal.  I had almost given up on the idea of getting engaged on the trip until it finally happened.  One night after dinner we walked to the Piazza di Spagna where we were sitting on the steps when Amir pulled the ring out of his pocket and asked me to marry him.  It made the rest of the trip much most relaxing- for both of us! Check out the highlights of Meghan and Amir's beautiful day!

Anjalee + Justin | The Mountain Winery | Saratoga

Justin and I met through mutual friends and hit it off immediately. I was going to Santa Clara University for my Bachelor's in Psychology and living with my parents. Justin would come over almost every day and hang out with my family. We loved spending time with each other and in time we fell in love. Looking back our love has grown stronger each year we have been together. For every anniversary we go to Disneyland and in June of 2011 we were celebrating being together for 4 years. We were holding hands and as we entered the park he slowed down. When I turned back he was holding a ring and on one knee. "This ring represents my heart and it will always be yours. Will you marry me?" he says! Needless to say I said yes. Truly the happiest place on earth! And Justin had already talked to my dad and asked for his blessing. Quickly we decided to have the wedding in 1 year on our 5 year anniversary. The wedding planning began and we chose The Mountain Winery for our location. Everything fell into place and our special day was absolutely perfect. We wouldn't have changed anything about it except for maybe having some more time to get something to eat; but we were having so much fun it didn't matter! After the wedding we had time to jump on a flight to Anaheim and continue our tradition in Disneyland. This would be followed by 2 weeks in Jamaica for the honeymoon! In fact I don't think the honeymoon has ended. Here are the highlights of Anjalee and Justin's perfect day!

Jeanne + Johnhan | Hollins House | Santa Cruz

Jeanne and Johnhan's love story began with a wink. Johnhan sent Jeanne a wink on and although Jeanne was initially hesitant, they soon started chatting non-stop. Several weeks later, they had their first date, which lasted seven hours! Fast forward two years, Johnhan proposed to Jeanne in Tiburon, CA after a day of hiking, biking and sightseeing during the Fourth of July weekend. Several days after getting engaged, they added Squeegee, a bouncy white pup into their lives. Despite the difficulties of raising a new puppy and wedding planning, Jeanne and Johnhan conquered all obstacles and married on June 30th, 2012 in a beautiful outdoor ceremony surrounded by close family and friends in Santa Cruz, CA. Here are the highlights of this amazing day:
