Our Engagement Story

Hi guys! I am finally going to share our engagement with you! I couldn't wait to show you all the photos and tell you how it happened! Here we go...

Every year when we go to San Diego, we always have our set places we go for dinner. Sunday night we always go to La Jolla and eat at Karl Strauss and go walk down to the cliffs to see the sea lions. I have always loved going out on the rocks and trying to dodge the waves that come up onto the cliffs. My whole family {all my aunts, uncles, cousins, grandma} went to eat and we started to make our way down to the water. I had a feeling Jeff might propose on this trip but earlier in the day Jeff told me that he didn't want to propose when his family wasn't there...I became a little sad...but honestly had no idea when he would do it! We got down to the cliffs and my dad went to take a photo of us {a huge sea lion was in the back of us} and all of a sudden Jeff got down on one knee. YAY! And there went the flood gate of tears. I was so happy! I of course said yes, and put on my ring {my gorgeous ring!}. There was so much excitement in the air! I looked up on top of the walk way and all of my family was there smiling, crying and waving at us. Then I couldn't believe it, Jeff's parents had surprised me and had driven all the way to California and two of our best friends, Jake and Kylie came too! After taking a ton of pictures and crying {a lot} we went back up to the top and toasted with Champagne {courtesy of Jeff's parents}. Seriously it was magical and I couldn't have pictured it any other way. Family means the most to both of us, and I am so happy we got to have our special moment with them. I can't wait to be a Wilson!:) xoxoxo















xoxo,
Alyssa
