Dave + Lindsay // The Anatomy of an Engagement

We have been very lucky with the opportunity to share so many couples' stories of how they dated, fell in love, and ended up where they are on their wedding day, but never have we had an opportunity quite like the one that presented itself this week.

Dave, one of our cinematographers (and my brother), decided it was time to pop the question to his now fiance, Lindsay. So, being that we are suckers for good stories, what better an opportunity than to unfold the crazy story of what goes into a proposal. You will learn what happened as you watch, but just a couple fun behind the scenes points of interest.

1.) The ring really did arrive less than 5 minutes before Lindsay got to the house to go out to dinner.

2.) The gratuitous shot of the boxer in the back of the car is Bailey, our beloved four legged critter.

3.) Jackie (my wife) was more nervous than the guy popping the question, and was hiding on the beach along with me for the filming of the actual proposal.

4.) The majority of this film was shot and edited all in the same day (until 1:30 in the morning to be exact) so that Dave and Lindsay could surprise all of their family and friends by posting it on Facebook this morning. I'm sure they have received a few text messages by now :-)

So with cameras rolling days before, during, and after the big question, we came up with this. . .

The Anatomy of an Engagement.

A HUGE thank you to the following people:

1.) Steve Kim at Five Crowns in Corona Del Mar for letting us film in his restaurant. Such a great guy and the food at this place is unreal. Great spot for a special occasion.

2.) Eric Sahagian from Mars Jewelry. An old friend, fraternity brother, and amazing jewelry manufacturer. Couldn't have done it without you.

and thanks to the family for playing along as we put this all together. You know who you are.
