It was Christmas morning. She was kind of expecting a ring. A few weeks before he had asked for some boxes to wrap her presents in and her mom suggested throwing in a red ring box to, you know, be subtle in the hints. Then very last present he handed her, a small, box-like package, just the right weight…this could be it, she thought. She held her breath, her family members all held their collective breaths…she slowly opens the box and…pulls out a mood ring.
Unbeknownst to her, he had ordered the ring early and it was promised to be finished and delivered in time for a Christmas Day proposal, but 2 days before Christmas he was told that the ring was not ready. He scrambled to the mall to find gifts to give her, as THE ring was supposed to be his gift to her.
A week later, he totally caught her by surprise with a real ring, not in a ring box, but taped on a wine glass covered in painted rings. One year later, Nina and Andrew will join their lives in front of family and friends at the NTC Promenade in San Diego and I am honored to be a part of their big day!
P.S. I KNEW we would get along when in Nina’s initial email to me, I responded with a “That’s What She Said” joke (a la “The Office”) and she laughed
P.S. They brought their fur baby, Max along for a few shots. This is him looking “fierce.”
