LINDA + SEAN | SURPRISE PROPOSAL | TORREY PINES STATE BEACH
Sean must have watched a season or two of The Bachelor before planning his surprise proposal to his girlfriend of 3 years. This dream proposal was over the top romantic in a way that would make any girl swoon.
Sean and Linda are currently living in two different states, Sean in Michigan working on his radiology residency and Linda in Indiana completing her doctor of dental surgery program. Linda will be reunited with Sean in the upcoming year.
The couple vacation in San Diego whenever possible, and so this beautiful beach city has become Sean and Linda’s ‘Happy Place.’ Sean couldn’t think of anywhere else in the world more perfect and so he cooked up the most insane surprise proposal..
This is what he did…
Created a Scavenger hunt for Linda starting in Indiana and ending in San Diego
Sent Linda to get her nails done
Told Linda to pack her bags for warm weather
Had her friend drop her off at the airport with a round-trip ticket to San Diego
Arranged a friend to pick her up at the Airport in San Diego and chauffeur her around all day
Sent Linda to get her hair and makeup done
Ordered rose petals and a bouquet
Created signs to guide Linda’s Path to her ‘final rose ceremony’
Hired THE DELAURAS to capture the proposal
Once the scavenger hunt began Linda had a hunch that something special would be waiting for her at the finish line. Each stop on the scavenger hunt added to the growing anticipation of finally seeing Sean.
Sean wanted to propose on the cliffs looking out at the ocean during sunset. Torrey Pines made for the perfect setting for this intimate and momentous moment; the location is epic, serene, and breathtaking.
Sean created little signs to guide Linda on her 3/4 mile walk down to the cliff side. He laid out rose petals at the finish line and anxiously waited for her arrival. The scavenger hunt took a bit longer than he anticipated and so he waited and waited… the sky threatening to storm and the sun quickly setting.
Linda arrived at Torrey Pines State Beach just as the Sun dipped below the horizon, she walked down the long winding path towards the love of her life. Excitement and joy swept across her face when she first spotted Sean at the end of the long path..
He got down on one knee and proposed; it was a dream come true.
