Tim Lopez and Jenna Reeves Engagement Photos

As many of you know, we are thrilled to be planning another family wedding!! Tim (Colette’s son & Kaitlin’s brother) proposed to his stunning fiance- Jenna two days before Christmas & we cannot contain our excitement!

Their love story began on ‘Ready For Love’– an NBC reality dating show that featured 3 matchmakers as well as 3 bachelors! Tim has been touring with the band the Plain White T’s for the past 10 years and was ready to settle down with someone who he felt was sincere & could handle his travel schedule. Then along comes Jenna- the young, gorgeous and energetic blonde who stole our hearts and we were fortunate to be able to watch their love story unfold throughout the show. After the show ended they dated for 2 1/2 years until this past holiday season when Tim popped the question!  Tim woke Jenna up early on the morning of  December 23rd, 2014 to go for a beach walk & watch the sunrise at one of their favorite spots in Santa Barbara- Butterfly Beach. Tim had prepared a basket ahead of time with champagne, flutes, and a blanket to cuddle up in. Tim expressed to us that he wanted the proposal to feel like they were the only people on earth since so much of their dating relationship had been public. Tim waited for just the right moment to get down on one knee and present the jaw-dropping pear shaped diamond engagement ring he had custom made by Bryant & Sons Jewelers.  Tim & Jenna we cannot wait for your beautiful wedding and are so thrilled to have you in our lives!

How to plan a romantic beach proposal and ensure she says YES!

A few weeks ago I helped a friend plan the most romantic proposal for his new fiancé. It was an honor to be included in a day that they will both remember for the rest of their lives. So if you have recently been in the market for buying a ring and popping the question, here is how to plan a romantic beach proposal and ensure she says YES!

Rick, the future groom, called me to discuss his vision for the perfect proposal and I immediately jumped on board. His ideas were flawless and I knew it was certain to be one of the most elegant proposals. He explained that his future bride, Rachel, had always dreamed of riding horses on the beach… So we created a completely spontaneous experience for her… A wrangler from Los Padres Outfitters guided 3 beautiful horses down the beach and approached Rick and Rachel. They were simply enjoying a casual day at the beach- lounging on their towels at Rincon Point in Carpinteria.

As the horses approached, Rachel urged Rick to get up and pet the horses-which he knew she would do! The wrangler explained that “Her riders for the day had just cancelled last minute, and offered to take Rick and Rachel for a long ride down the beach.” Excitedly, Rick ran up to the car and grabbed Rachel a pair of jeans and t-shirt to enjoy the ride!

 The unsuspecting couple rode off into the distance and the design team took over! I was accompanied by my fiancé and the grooms nephew and his wife, and thank goodness because I could not have done this without their help. We transformed their casual day at the beach into a  romantic proposal site . Red rose petals draped along the edge of a comfortable blanket, loaded with tons of pillows, flowers, and candles and Rachel’s favorite- chocolate dipped strawberries.  A dear friend of mine who is an extremely talented photographer, Yvonne Goll hid behind some foliage to capture each second of the proposal. Yvonne is really making a name for herself in the destination wedding world and I was blown away by how beautifully she captured this proposal. To see more of her work visit her website here!

As the sun began to set, Rachel changed into and adorable black romper and Yvonne was able to capture some of the most adorable portraits I have ever seen. You can literally feel the love through the images.

Rick and Rachel, I wish you a lifetime of happiness and everlasting romance that its clearly so prevalent in your relationship. It was truly an honor and a blessing to be a part of such a joyous occasion. I want to extend a giant thank you to everyone who helped make this day so special for these two: Yvonne Goll Photography, my darling fiancé Andrew, Rick’s nephew Dillon and his wife Christine.
