Plaid Picnic Engagement Session | Cedar Grove Park | Tustin, California // Mary + Sergio
After meeting through a friend almost two years ago, Sergio proposed to Mary on their very first trip together in Big Sur! It definitely speaks to their adventurous nature as a couple – they love the outdoors, exploring, hiking, and road tripping! Although they’re opposites in many ways, these lovebirds compliment each other so well. We decided to head to Cedar Grove Park in Tustin, CA for their Winter Engagement Session in February. What I love about this small local park is that it has so many beautiful little spots – it looked like we were in a forest far away somewhere! You’d have no idea that there were baseball games literally going on a few feet away from us! But I was so pleased with how Mary and Sergio were so immersed in the moment.
They brought a little picnic setup complete with a warm plaid blanket and a few glasses of wine! Oh, and yes, they brought a glass for me so of course I didn’t say no to joining in on their picnic – like I always say, professional third wheel over here! We bonded over some music, especially the folksy goodness of Vance Joy and The Head and the Heart. One of the many things I love so much about my job is that I get to meet so many new friends and hang out with them, while also preserving some lovely memories for them!
