Late on Christmas Eve, after Sheena had turned in for the night, Adam snuck into the living room and filled it with every beautiful holiday decoration they owned, plus a few borrowed from his father. He was determined to create a winter wonderland for his soon-to-be fiancee and even went so far as to purchase a small tree and get it up and decorated without Sheena knowing! The sweet little tree was covered with garland and lights, but only one ornament. One perfect little ornament with two snowmen and a big heart. Oh, and a lovely little message - Will you marry me? - engraved upon it.
When Sheena awoke the next morning, it was as if Santa himself shimmied down the chimney and decorated the house for them. She was stunned to see the living room aglow with holiday lights. Adam told her that her present was actually on the tree. As she slowly took in the room and soaked up all the holiday love surrounding her, her eyes fell upon the lone ornament with its fateful question engraved on the front. Before she could fully take in the moment, Adam was down on one knee. Sheena fought back tears of pure joy as she said yes to her true love.
This past May, cherished friends and beloved family members gathered at the lovely Altadena Town & Country Club to watch as Adam & Sheena vowed to be by each others' side until the very end. The happiness was palpable as guests hugged and kissed, dined and danced, and embraced the couple as they embark on a new phase of their life together. A life that will undoubtedly be filled with many more Christmas surprises and warm spring memories to come.
Thank you, Adam & Sheena, for choosing me to document your wonderful day!
That last photo of the impromptu chair dancing pretty much sums up the day - happiness, joy, excitement, and lots of wild and crazy fun!
