Mason tricked his beautiful girlfriend, Nicole, into spending a weekend in Carmel Valley to “celebrate his birthday.” Weeks prior to the big day, he had decided on the location he would pop the question and gave me maps and details as to where to hide out for the event. Wow, did he choose well! The scenery was the beautiful vineyard walk at the Carmel Valley Ranch. He even planned for the sweeping vistas to be the backdrop for the proposal. Mason told her he wanted to go to breakfast, but first wanted to take a selfie with the vines. Soon enough, he was on one knee and Nicole was in shock. It was the perfect moment. Even better, Mason had gathered both sides of their families back in the cottage which made Nicole cry when they greeted her. If that wasn’t enough, he organized a beautiful brunch on the patio, adorned with flowers and even a custom menu. Way to go! Congratulations to Nicole and Mason, it was a wonderful experience for me, I feel so lucky.
