Newport Beach, California Proposal Pictures – James and Jewel’s Gondola Engagement

James and Jewel attended the same university, at the same time, and knew the same people. Yet somehow their paths never crossed.

All that changed a few years back when they finally met during a chance encounter at an alumni gathering. They hit it off, and have been deeply in love ever since.

While Jewel may have had an idea James would someday propose, she had NO idea where or when it would finally happen. Knowing he wanted to surprise her, James decided to sneakily pop the question while the two were visiting Southern California. Your standard restaurant proposal was simply not going to cut it. So he contacted our friends at Gondola Adventures to arrange for a private romantic ride.

With a little help from the gondolier, a message in a bottle suddenly appeared in the path of their vessel. As Jewel plucked the bottle from the water and began to read the note, she still had no idea what was about to happen. As she read the special message lovingly written by James, which included the words “will you marry me?” James quietly pulled the ring from his pocket. Needless to say, Jewel was floored as James gently slipped the ring on her finger. Little did she know James has arranged for proposal pictures, care of Paparazzi Proposals!
