Noah and Gabriella just got married this past weekend, but our hearts are still melting for their Morro Bay Dunes engagement photoshoot! From the sweet, sandy kisses to rolling around in the sand, Central Coast Wedding Photographer, Alexandra Wallace, captured all the swoon-worthy moments between the couple. We can't seem to get over every single precious moment of this session. While we could go on and on, take a look at this session yourself:
How did you meet? Tell us how you met! Was it love at first sight?
We actually met on Tinder lol. It was an incredibly awkward first dinner date, and we thought we'd never see each other again. We ended up giving it one more shot and went on a wildly spontaneous trip up to Big Sur, California, and never stopped talking from that day forward. Now we're here!
Who said I love you first? What was that moment like?
He did. He was about to leave for his first shift of the season (as a Cal Fire Firefighter) during one of the biggest fire seasons ever. He catered Italian food to his little studio apartment, strung up some lights, and read a beautiful letter that ended with "I love you".
Tell us about the proposal! What were the behind the scenes moments before the big question?
He tricked me into thinking that he was going to propose during a date out on a Friday night. It didn't happen, and I was distraught thinking that we'd never get engaged. On a beautiful and seemingly "spontaneous" Sunday afternoon, he took me on a picnic date to the beach. We talked a lot about marriage and our dreams for life together, and suddenly he was on one knee. I fell on my knees with him and said yes. Our friends popped up behind some rocks, cheering us on.
How did you celebrate after the proposal?
We ran home where our families were waiting for us with cake and champagne to toast, and of course FaceTimed all of our friends.
Do you have plans for your wedding yet?
We are actually getting married August 6th. We always wanted a short engagement. We thought long engagements were for people throwing extravagant parties. We're definitely throwing a party, but really we just want to be married and start this new chapter together.
Congratulations Noah & Gabriella! We can't wait to see where this next chapter will take you!
