DAVE + MELISSA | SURPRISE PROPOSAL | MEMORIAL DAY | SAN CLEMENTE
Dave and Melissa had an instant connection, Dave knew from their first date that there was something truly special about this blue eyed beauty. Over the past year Dave has been saving money every week so that he could buy Melissa’s dream ring. He knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that she was his perfect match and that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her by his side.
The couple couldn’t be better suited for one another, they are both hard working, fun loving, loyal, kind, adventurous, playful, and they know how truly laugh with one another. They have that special kind of love that you can feel when you are near them; You can see the love sparkle in their eyes!
Dave spent weeks orchestrating his Memorial Day surprise proposal. he hired my fiance Anthony DeLaura and I to capture the moments on film and on video! We scouted the location the week prior and planned out where Anthony and I would be hiding in the bushes so we could capture the moment without being seen. Dom Perignon on ice, boombox set to play, and all of their friends standing by, nothing was going to ruin this moment!
We anxiously waited for Melissa and Dave to round the corner on the ‘walking path’ towards the San Clemente pier. The plan was for Melissa and Dave to stop and take a picture, he told Melissa he wanted to take a picture of her looking out onto the ocean, when she turned back around, Dave was down on one knee with a ring in his hand. Melissa was SO shocked, overjoyed and overwhelmed all at the same time. Tears in her eyes, laughter on her face and love in her eyes she said YES! Everyone cheered and walked down to the beach to celebrate Dave and Melissa and their engagement together!
