Popping The Question in Los Angeles, CA

Truthfully, when I think of traveling around Los Angeles I get a bit overwhelmed. I know Becca would agree with me (after a personal driving experience with her)! A city that jam-packed can cause headaches BUT there are quite a few hidden gems underneath all the “stuff.” Los Angeles has some of the most beautiful wedding venues- gardens especially – which is translated into perfect proposal locations as well. There are a plethora of glitz and glam venues in LA that are worthy of a marriage proposal but if you’re in search for a bit more of a fairy tale-esk venue, have a look at these. You’ll fall in love! Did I mention they would be phenomenal for engagement shoots too?

I Couldn’t Have Planned The Proposal Better Myself ;)

This is the amazing video that Chris Babbitt from Proview Video created of Tommy and my proposal!

Kendall and Tommy Proposal Video from Heather Vaughn on Vimeo. Filmed by Proview video.

This is my version of the proposal and photos below…

Our proposal story starts by my fiancé, Tommy, filling out a fake questionnaire for our business. Towards the end of July Heather sent us all a questionnaire for a couple from Arizona named Allie MaCintyre and Brad Shannon. As I read through the questionnaire I found out that they has been dating for a few years and would venture to Orange County often cause Allie had family down here. Brad wanted to propose somewhere in Dana Point, and incorporate her love for art and Mexican food (where they went on their first date). Brad wanted The Yes Girls there to help set up and film the proposal. We also hired our friend Melissa to take pictures. I had a very busy two weeks and gave Heather my ideas, but didn’t think much of it. I told her to just tell me where to be, what time and what to bring.

As Sunday rolled around, I began to ask Heather more questions, she was vague on details and continued to say Becca had already taken care of most of it. She did tell me to make one of our, “She Said Yes” signs that “Allie” could hold after the proposal. Sunday came and I was definitely feeling a bit confused, but not wanting to think too much into it, especially since Tommy had asked me on Saturday to go look at rings (well done on his part). I drove to Melissa’s (the photographer) so that we could drive together down to Heritage Park in Dana Point. Becca was meeting us there and Heath was directing from Nor Cal. I noticed that Melissa was on her phone a lot in the car but, again, didn’t want to jump to conclusions because it wasn’t too unusual for her.

We finally arrived to the park, which overlooks Dana Point Harbor, and parked. A concert had just ended and there were people scattered around. Melissa told me to stand by the entrance and hold up the “She Said Yes” sign I had made so she could fix her lighting. I’m not going to lie, holding that sign I felt pretty silly, especially because secretly I wanted to be holding that sign for real. Plus, we were at the same place Tommy and I had come after we had gone on a dinner date at a Mexican Restaurant in Laguna (oh how creative on his end for filling out the questionnaire!) Little did I know…

I finally turned around and saw Becca standing by stairs that led up to a concrete patio. As soon as I saw Becca, my eyes went directly to everything already set up. I saw candles and roses and my stomach dropped. I walked through a crowd of people, not even noticing any of them singing Jimmy Buffett songs, and I knew. I walked up the steps and turned to Melissa and Becca and I think muttered the words, “You guys are sneaky.” They told me to sit at the table and read the book.

As I sat down I began to read a scrapbook that Tommy had made by himself (yes he scrap booked in a store with women for many hours). It was called, “Tommy and Kendall: The Journal of Love.” It had all of our moments together for the past four years: Christmases, college, first date, vacations, friends and family. The joke with people is how many weddings we go to. Well, the last two pages were pictures of all the weddings we have been in and attended. Finally the last page said, “Now it’s our turn!” When I finished the last page Tommy, who had been standing at a distance behind me watching me read the book, walked around the corner. The cloud above my head kept getting bigger. He immediately went to a knee, and the rest…well you and I both listened to what he said on the video.

Of course I said “Yes”, then next thing I knew, Heather and Lindsay (the other Yes Girls) ran around the corner and surprised me! Our family friend Chris, who owns ProView Video was filming and Tommy’s friend, Pat, jumped out of the bushes with a flip camera. Once I hugged everyone still crying and shaking we sat down at the table for two he had created. He explained that the two bottles of wine at the table were for us to enjoy one tonight, and then save the other for our 25th wedding anniversary. There was a box with the letter R, my new last name, with a hand-written letter in it. Tommy told me that the box will go on our nightstand, so that he can write me notes for the rest of our lives. There were chocolate covered strawberries, and my roommate had painted a portrait of him proposing to me (which was my idea for Allie and Brad).

To top it all off, after we left Heritage Park we went to my aunt and uncle’s home where he had planned a surprise engagement party with all our family and friends….sighhhh I couldn’t have planned it better myself!  ;)

Love,

The Future Mrs. Rodriguez!

A Yes Girl Says “Yes!”

A Yes Girl said “Yes!” Many of you have been patiently waiting to see the beautiful photos of Kendall and Tommy’s engagement, which were taken by our close friend, Melissa with Miss Meliss Photography. Tommy, your proposal was the definition of thoughtfulness. You made her proud! So without further ado, here is Tommy and Kendall’s proposal story.

KTeng-2 KTeng-1 KTeng-4 KTeng-3 KTeng-5 KTeng-6 KTeng-12 KTeng-15 KTeng-9 KTeng-13 KTeng-11 Kendall showed up August 8th convinced  she was setting up a marriage proposal for a client. To completely fool Kendall, I had Tommy fill out the questionnaire we use for all our clients. The girl ironically had some similarities to Kendall. I emailed the questionnaire to all the Yes Girls just like usual, however, this time the couple was completely made up by Tommy. Of course Lindsay and Becca were also in on it. Kendall submitted her proposal idea for this fake couple. Just to up the ante, we incorporated one of her ideas into her own proposal! How could we not?

Mason jar lanterns were hung from the trees and covered the steps in flower petals and floating candles that allured Kendall up the steps to a personalized table in the center of the patio. With the a 180 degree view of Dana Point Harbor it was so Bachelor-esk! The entire setting was to Kendall’s taste- elegant, chic, and vintage. The table was adorned with purple linens (her favorite color), white vintage chairs with adorable gray pillows, a gorgeous bouquet of her favorite flowers set in a silver vintage vase, and chocolate covered strawberries. Accompanying those items were two wine glasses with two bottles of wine. One bottle was open for Tommy and Kendall to toast with that evening while the other was to save for their 20th wedding anniversary. Wait…it gets better! Next to the wine was a letter box with a letter inside from Tommy. The box was for her to save all the cards he would write her in the future. Beside the table stood an easel with a painting of Tommy and Kendall in the classic proposal pose! This was Kendall’s idea for the fake couple’s proposal (which was such a great idea) that we incorporated it into hers! Lastly, there was a photo book on the table. The heart of Tommy’s proposal and he spent many hours perfecting it.

When Kendall arrived, Tommy, the Yes Girls, and friends were already hiding in the bushes. We had some difficulty shooing away onlookers and silencing a guitar player who thought he was Jimmy Buffett, but once she arrived, everyone hushed to witness the love story. Becca was waiting for Kendall who arrived with Melissa. Kendall knew Becca would be there to help her set up and supposedly Melissa would be taking pictures for the fake client’s proposal. Not quite sure what was going on yet, Becca had to give Kendall a little boost up the stairs. All Lindsay and I could hear was “Oh my gosh” and “I’m going to kill you guys!” What a way to start the evening, right? Kendall was taken aback to say the least.

Once Kendall sat down and caught glimpse of the photo book it all pieced together. The photo book consisted of special moments and events over the years. Kendall and Tommy are infamously known for how many weddings they attend every summer so as Kendall skimmed the last pages it showed photos of her and Tommy at weddings, after weddings, after weddings…until she reached the last page and which said “Now it’s our turn.” That was Tommy’s cue as he strolled around the corner, instantly dropped to one knee and asked Kendall to be his wife! These are just a few photos I took of the scenery.

P8080650 P8080649 P8080634 P8080633 P8080645 We could barely contain ourselves. As soon as we saw Kendall jump up and say “Yes” we all screamed from behind the bushes. The crowd joined us with a huge applause and whistles. Sorry Tommy for not giving you a few seconds with your fianceé before revealing we were there. Kendall had no idea Lindsay and I were hiding, so we were just excited to see her. After lots of hugs, Tommy and Kendall received their alone time enjoying their wine and taking a walk through Heritage Park while the girls and I headed over to their surprise engagement party. The evening was full of celebration and one beautifully happy engaged couple!

Love,
