Marco contacted me just a few days prior to asking Andrea to marry him at Malibu Creek State Park. Originally, he had planned to propose on the beach in Malibu and after about an hour conversation with him on the phone, we were both pretty convinced that it would be perfect. We were wrong.
It didn't occur to either of us initially to check the tide table but thankfully we did because if we hadn't, we would have been screwed. It would've been high tide and we literally wouldn't have had a beach for Marco to get down on one knee. So we both agreed that Malibu Creek State Park would be a better option.
I got there about 45 minutes prior to them to figure out what exact location would work best and then text Marco with my pin location. Unfortunately, that area has terrible cell service, so none of my texts were going through. I even hiked up to the highest hill to see if I could get a signal, but to no avail.
So I sent one last text with the description of what I had in mind. I put a line of dry grass, which you can see right behind them in the first photo, to let Marco know that that's the best spot. The text went through and I literally jumped in the tall grass, hidden from their sight (I hoped), and waited for them.
As I saw them starting to walk up the path, I got ready and pointed my camera in their direction. When they reached that point with the grass, they stopped (PHEW!), Marco got down on one knee, and he ask Andrea to marry him with me and their fur child, Brixton, watching and...
...SHE SAID YES!
Here's some of what was captured!
