Miles & Rini // Rustic Styled engagement

how he asked-torrance wedding-photographyFROM THE BRIDE //

Miles and I knew very early on in our relationship that we had a future together. From the first time that I saw him in 2011, I knew I had to be with him. Turned out that he felt the same (!!!!), and we were inseparable from the start. We never stopped having fun together and simply couldn’t get enough of each other. Everyone always says that when you know, you know. As simple and silly as that phrase may sound, it was entirely true for me. With Miles, I just knew. We talked about marriage regularly and looked forward to the time when our finances would allow us to take the next step as a couple. Luckily for us, everything fell into place much sooner than expected. We began the process of having our rings customized by a jeweler that I had been admiring. I had a general idea of when they might be ready, but it was up to Miles to decide when he wanted to propose to me. (This is where I started to get really excited, because I LOVE surprises!)

In the middle of October 2013, we went camping at Vail Lake with around 30 close friends and family members. While we were there, Miles and I went wine tasting at a nearby vineyard with my parents. I had never been to a tasting before, so I was already really excited about the day. It was absolutely beautiful there, and we spent a while admiring the scenery before getting started on the tasting (which was delicious!). After gaining a little liquid courage, Miles walked us back outside to “take a picture” in front of the rolling vineyards. My parents were nearby with their cameras ready. I turned away to set my purse down and cracked a lame joke about what a perfect place this would have been for a proposal. Miles laughed and said, “Oh yeah? You mean like this?” When I turned back around, he was down on one knee with a gorgeous ring! I instantly began to cry and said “Yes!” as soon as I was able to compose myself. My parents were able to capture the proposal and the few precious moments afterward in photos. We spent the rest of the day drinking wine and celebrating back at the campsite with family and friends. It could not have been a more perfect day! Now I spend most of my time basking in the fact that I get to marry the most incredible man I have ever met.

    Christina Bielma - Reina,
    I am in absolutely awe scrolling through these beautiful pictures. I am unable to find the words to explain how happy that I am for you & Miles as you two start this amazing, precious journey together. I have known you for a very long time and unfortunately we grew apart as the years went by, which seems impossible as seeing how close we were years ago. After all, your house was my second home.

    I am so very proud of you and all your accomplishments thus far and I know you will have many more to celebrate and to be proud of. You’ve turned into a beautiful woman & I am proud to have been able to call you my friend.

    Congratulations my friend.

    With love,
    ChristinaReplyCancel
