Chrisy & Noland's Surprise Wedding Proposal

February 26, 2018

Thank you to Paul Douda Photography for sharing this sweet surprise proposal! I just love to hear about the stories of tradition continuing in some way! What a beautiful gesture of love to Noland's parents by continuing the tradition!




From the photographer: Noland is with the Coast Guard in Northern California and had a week off that he decided to make the most memorable week of a lifetime. He flew home to propose to the love of his life, Chrisy. I had such a blast capturing Noland & Chrisy's proposal at Bailey's Palomar Resort! Bailey's had a rustic mountainous atmosphere that we were able to take advantage of. It was so much fun seeing Noland & Chrisy's goofy side shine through during this very special session. This location was very special to Noland, as his parents were married there many years ago. The tradition continues! 


How we met (from the couple): We met at a bar outside the Lakeside rodeo. My friend Jose (Noland's friend) noticed Chrisy and a friend of hers from across the bar and decided to drag me along with him to pick her up. He dropped an extremely cheesy (and inappropriate) pick up line. Chrisy thought it was so funny that she stuck around talking to both of us. We ended up chatting the rest of the night and she agreed to go on a date with me the next day (to the rodeo!). The rest is history!












 What a beautiful ring!
