It all started with an instant message.
Linda and Andy had worked in the same office for many years and were best friends before becoming a happy couple.
Their proposal story, or shall I say, “preproposal” story, started like any average day. While they were both on a conference call at work, the two couldn’t stop secretly IMing each other like giddy school-kids that you have to keep separated. When someone mutilated the difficult pronunciation of Andy’s last name, Linda wrote a playful, “Hahahaha” to which Andy responded, “Yeah, my last name is funny…” “Want to share it?” Taken off-guard, Linda asked if that was a proposal. Andy said “It’s a pre-proposal. I’m still working on the proposal.” Andy re-proposed again a few months later “…with a beautiful ring.” But for those who know them, their IM proposal was perfect.
For Linda and Andy’s engagement session, I just knew we had to do something to showcase their bubbly, fun-loving personalities. When I discovered they both shared a love for theme parks and Disneyland, I couldn’t think of a more fitting place. After all, what’s better than “the happiest place on earth”? And Linda confirmed my idea with an enthusiastic “YES!”
It ended up being a blast! What can I say – we definitely clicked!
We woke up to a rainy forecast, but we didn’t let that spoil our fun! Instead, we took full advantage of the glistening, wet walkways and magical skies.On one of our last stops, we visited the coolest place in Disneyland, the whimsical streets of Mickey’s Toontown! And I have to point out Linda’s adorable shoes that would make Minnie Mouse (and me) jealous. So cute!
After spending the day together, I know their wedding is going to be a blast next month at the beautiful Four Seasons Las Vegas!
