The Connect: After graduating from SDSU, Allison moved to the Bay Area to be close to her family. Tyler, who grew up in San Diego, had moved to Walnut Creek for work. While out with mutual friends at a local bar, their worlds came together.
The Proposal: While running along Torrey Pines State Beach, Tyler stopped to “stretch” and secretly pulled out a beautiful engagement ring that was tied to the drawstring of his shorts. As Allison turned around, Tyler was down on one knee and asked her to marry him.
The Celebration: The couple planned an intimate beachfront ceremony on the sand followed by a garden patio reception at La Jolla Shores Hotel. Although the wedding was picture perfect, Allison says her favorite part of the wedding was going back to their room after the most enchanted evening and opening their honeymoon suite to find rose petals scattered throughout the candlelit room. On their balcony, overlooking La Jolla Shores, were two cupcakes and a sparkling bottle of Dom Perignon. The newlywed couple enjoyed the view while soaking in all the memories they had just created from the perfect evening.
