Engagement: Eliza & Matthew

Eliza and Matthew are a story plucked right out of a fairytale.  Eliza is a true Disney Princess with a Prince Charming waiting to slip on the glass slipper this summer. Here is what the beautiful bride has to say about their love story and their engagement session with the talented Ali from Ali Wire Photography

How did you meet?
We met through a mutual friend between freshman and sophomore year of high school.

How did he propose?
Matthew proposed on the beach at sunset in his dress blues after surprising me when I believed to be helping his friend with a photo project.

Describe your perfect date?
Matthew surprised me for our 6-months of dating by waking me up at 6:30am one day and having my mom take us to the train station. From there we went to Anaheim and took a bus to what I figured out was Disneyland. Anybody who knows me knows I love Disneyland so it was a fantastic surprise. Nobody has ever thought of doing something like that for me except him.

What do you look forward to most after your wedding day?
Being that we're in a military relationship, we spend a lot of time apart. We're looking forward to me being able to move in with him once he's state-side.

What is one quality out of the million that you absolutely love about him?
The ability that he has to make me laugh.

Eliza and Matthew board their horse carriage this coming July amidst the hills of the Santa Monica mountains.
