Eleven years ago Terence first started noticing Desiree because she played Final Fantasy VII, though it was through a series of comical miscommunications that eventually led to Desiree asking him out.  So it was only fitting to incorporate their mutual love of videogames into their engagement.  We had a great time exploring as they fearlessly let me drag them from one locale to another (even crawling through a small hole in a fence), making wonderful use of this location first for me (thanks Kelly and Jesse for the suggestions).

Almost squatting among cacti chasing two jogging girls while laden with equipment.. those were just a few humorous stories for this rather sweet proposal.  John's elaborate ruse even involved Diana dropping him off at the airport for a supposed trip, all in order to properly surprise her at his hilltop proposal.

If the old adage that rain on a wedding day brings good luck to a couple, then Jeff and Nadia were off to a wonderful start on the morning of their wedding.  A few brief showers later, their day cleared beautifully as they spoke their vows at the gorgeous Rancho De Las Palmas.

Jeff is a fan of McDonalds (they even incorporated it in their first engagement session), so that morning Nadia bought some for him (and the rest of the wedding party, of course).
