      Santa Monica Marriage Proposal | Santa Monica, CA | Harpreet and Sandeep

      Harpreet and Sandeep

      Their stories are almost identical, two dentists and two nurses who were college sweethearts, fell in love, and lost their partners in almost the exact same way. After becoming friends, they found each others experiences were very relatable to one another and they were able to understand each other on a level no one else can.
      Harpreet and Sandeep met through a mutual friend. This mutual friend also experienced the sudden loss of her partner. Their friend’s partner was related to Sandeep’s fiance and passed away a few months before Harpreet’s wife passed away. The three of them have been a support system for each other for a long time. In the midst of this, Harpreet and Sandeep became friends immediately and became best friends the more time they spent together. They never thought their hearts could grow to this level so organically after the darkness they have experienced, and would continue to grow with each passing moment. They found joys in everyday life experiences again: going to basketball games (GO WARRIORS! except Harpreet is still a loyal Kings fan), working out (very arguably their favorite past-time), training for a Spartan race, hanging out with family and friends, reconnecting with Waheguru, enjoying new restaurants, taking strolls through the park with their dogs – Annie and Marley, and relaxing on the beach.
      Sandeep and Harpreet truly believe their actions and service to humanity honor the lives they lost every day. They spend every waking moment living and loving life to the fullest – it is hard to take a single moment for granted anymore. Always forward, forward always!

      Santa Monica Marriage Proposal

      WOW, right? When Harpreet first called me to share his story and the upcoming proposal, I literally teared up. I couldn’t believe he was calling ME and asking me to be a part of this “beauty from ashes” story. It felt like such a humble honor.
      Of course, there is so much anxiety and anticipation and planning that goes into a proposal, and this one was no different. But Harpreet did everything he could to make sure it was perfect for Sandeep. We even had a little run-in with security on the roof THIRTY MIN before… but thankfully Harpreet convinced him we would be quick. After all, it had to be this location… as they come up here to watch the sun set behind the Santa Monica Pier and take photos together, regularly. It went off without a hitch, and Harpreet could breath a big sigh of relief before we went out for their post-proposal engagement session!
      Congrats again you two… and thank you so much for asking me to be a part of your story.

          Los Angeles Backyard Wedding Ceremony Photos | Los Angeles, CA | Luke and Tiffany

          How they Met

          Luke is a Yelp Ambassador in San Luis Obispo County, CA. Tiffany is a Yelp Ambassador in Grand Rapids,
          MI. In their early days with Yelp they were flown to an annual convention in San Francisco for training.
          This is where Luke and Tiffany met for the first time. Though they were fond of each other, they realized
          CA was too far from MI for any real relationship to happen. But, each excelled in their respective
          positions so much so Yelp flew them the next year to another convention where they spent time
          together. Yup, Yelp put them together and they decided there was something there pursue…each
          other. When they started this long distance relationship they promised each other they would be together as
          often as possible. Ever since they made that promise, the combined total travel they endured to be
          together included 36 different airline flights, 37 thousand air miles and 3,500 miles in road trips and that
          doesn’t include their recent cross country trip from Michigan, in a U-Haul, towing a car and carrying all
          of Tiffany’s belongings to relocate her to their new home on the Central Coast of California.
          But, I’m getting ahead of the story. You see, they actually got married for the first time June 3, 2018 at
          the Little Red Barn in Nunica, MI. That wedding was for Tiffany’s family and friends. A grand event with
          all the things you’d expect as a wonderful wedding. Then, the very next day, Luke and Tiffany finished
          packing all of her stuff and headed west for their next wedding.

          Los Angeles Backyard Wedding Ceremony

          These are the pictures of wedding #2 at Luke’s uncle’s house in Northridge, CA. This wedding was for
          Luke’s family and friends. This one was a little less conventional. Oh, not because it took place in a
          lovely backyard with a tennis court and swimming pool and not at a traditional wedding venue. No, the
          plan was to make it personal, family-like and intimate. The thing that made this wedding unusual was
          the weather. Their second wedding, July 8, 2018, was on one of the hottest days in recorded weather
          history for that area. 110 degrees!
          Knowing the weather was going to be this hot, family members began texting everyone coming to the
          wedding to bring a change of clothes. A bathing suit no less. Yup, after the ceremony, the wedding
          reception became a pool party including a 20 foot high bounce house water slide. No kidding.
          A good time was had by one and all!

          This is just the beginning of the wonderful love story of Luke
          and Tiffany Williams…

           

          “Thank you! Wow, such a fast turnaround! We’re on our first day in Maui for our honeymoon and this will be so much fun to sit down and go through! What a treat, they look fantastic at first glance and I can see why Laura spoke so highly of you. Thank you for taking the time and making the exception to help us out for a short period but still giving your all! I really appreciate it and know Tiffany will be thrilled!” – Luke
