Chet & Michelle | Surprise Proposal
Terranea Resort, Rancho Palos Verdes

Portraits

Nothing says “wow what a surprise,” better than when a man drops down on his knee to propose! And that’s exactly what happened when Chet decided to ask Michelle to be his future wife when the two were at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes.

We were there to capture the moment on camera — which left us feeling happy — and snapped many photos of their special day at the picturesque location. From casual shots of the couple walking to a close-up of their hands overlapping each other’s and more Michelle showing off her engagement ring, it was a great day for all.

They also climbed some rocks, embraced on the shoreline, and simply enjoyed themselves savoring their time together.

Of course Chet chose a magical place to pledge his love when he picked the Terranea Resort. Poised above coastal bluffs with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean, Terranea Resort opened in June 2009 as the only luxury resort destination on the Los Angeles coast. Guests enjoy a sophisticated, yet relaxed ambiance at this Mediterranean-inspired retreat surrounded by a glistening, panoramic seascape.

Celebrated for its natural beauty, the 102-acre estate features 582 guestrooms and suites, including spacious bungalows, casitas, and villas. Luxurious amenities spotlight eight unique dining experiences, a full-service spa and fitness center, award-winning golf course, three swimming pools, kids’ club, ecological enrichment programs and 135,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor wedding and event space.

Terranea is located on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, one of Southern California’s most scenic and coveted coastlines overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island.

Chet and Michelle are a beautiful young couple in love and we are glad they will be able to look back at such a wonderful day when the two decided to merge their lives when they look at these photos.

We wish them all pf the happiness they deserve for many years to come!
