James wanted to surprise his girlfriend Anne Marie with a marriage proposal in a special spot: on a Stow Lake rowboat, near the old stone arch bridge.

Preet & Prabhjit’s Palace of Fine Arts Sunset Proposal

We love it when a plan all comes together for a wonderful result! Preet brought his girlfriend Prabhjit to the Palace of Fine Arts on a sunny October afternoon.

Amos & Christine’s Lakeside Napa Winery Surprise Proposal

I could be fooled if you had told me these photos were taken in the French countryside: a dashing young man, arm-in-arm with his lovely girlfriend in her sun dress, walking by a quiet lake surrounded by grapevines in every direction. Amos and Christine had started their day off with a romantic hot air balloon ride before arriving at the beautiful Diamond Creek Vineyards. After a round of wine tasting, their host Mark drove them in a golf cart to the lake, where they would take a quick walk [ read more … ]
