Erika and Mitchell make it a habit to pack a picnic and head outdoors for fresh doses of ocean views and California sunsets. Because it’s a common date night activity, Erika didn’t suspect anything out of the ordinary the evening Mitch chose to propose in Douglas Family Preserve.
Erika and Mitch chose a private spot on the bluff and enjoyed their takeout meal from The Lark while snuggled on a blanket. The couple stood for a moment to enjoy the scenery, then Mitch got down on one knee and surprised Erika with her dream engagement ring from Clear Cut!
I was hiding out behind a nearby eucalyptus tree with I Heart My Groom Films, waiting to catch the big moment with photo and video! We rushed toward the couple and captured all the joy on Erika’s face as Mitchell asked her to be his wife.
We could not be MORE excited for these two to tie the knot! Until then, we’ll be gazing at their Santa Barbara proposal photos; here are some faves.
And don’t miss the amazing film of this moment by I Heart My Groom Films!
