I get chills every time I think of this Big Sur marriage proposal. Not just because it is so visually stunning, though it most certainly is. But because this proposal was almost completely ruined due to the Soberanes Fire, the most expensive wildfire in US History. Just days before Eli was scheduled to visit Big Sur and propose to Rikki, most places were still closed due to the evacuation that took place in multiple areas around Monterey County. Luckily love prevailed and Rikki got the most gorgeous and personalized marriage proposal.
Eli met Rikki at Camp Timberlane in Ontario when they were just 12 years old. They spent the next 9 summers there together and later went on to be camp counselor’s there. It was clear that “Camp Timberlane” had to be the theme for their marriage proposal. We had a sign created that was identical to the Welcome Sign at Camp Timberlane and we used that as the focal point for the proposal. The balcony overlooks the cliffs and the Pacific Ocean which provided a dramatic backdrop for the proposal. We surrounded the sign with ferns and other greenery and florals you would find in nature. It turned out so beautiful and chic and Rikki couldn’t believe her eyes when she walked in.
