Pretend Photo Shoot On The Water

Pretend Photo Shoot On The Water

We had so much fun planning this proposal in Carlsbad, CA.  Kyle wanted to propose to his gal, Melissa, on the water since that’s where these two love birds met.  They met wake boarding back home in Alabama and have spent numerous days on the water since.  Here’s how it all went down…

Kyle and Melissa were visiting friends in CA for the weekend, so we scheduled a private boat ride on this awesome Calabria (wake boarding boat) at Carlsbad Lagoon. Josh, the boat driver, took the couple out for a spin while Troy Grover, the photographer who took these amazing photos, jumped on board to capture the proposal.  You may be wondering how Kyle pulled this off without her knowing. And trust us, she had NO IDEA!

Well, Troy politely asked if he could ride along to take some promo photos of the new boat for California Water Sports website. After 20 minutes of cruising on the lake, he even asked them to “model” for a few photos.  Melissa happily agreed.  To keep it a true surprise, we asked Troy to position Kyle and Melissa in different poses for the promo shots.   After a few pictures, he directed Kyle to get down on one knee and hold Melissa’s left hand…aka the proposal pose.  It took her a few seconds to realize what was actually going on.  There in front of her was Kyle holding her gorgeous solitary diamond ring!

To complete their perfect day, Kyle treated his fiancée to a luxurious limo ride to a fabulous dinner at the Chart House, which is right on the beach. Pure bliss. When it comes to Southern Ca, we have many preferred vendors since that’s where all the Yes Girls are originally from.  Congrats again Kyle and Melissa and a blessed marriage to you both!
