Liz is the stylish blogger behind Late Afternoon and she is engaged to her sweetie Sam! They met 6 years ago in his home town of Santa Cruz where Liz was attending U. C Santa Cruz and Sam was a local surfer boy. :) They were inseparable from the very first day they met and said “I love you” after only 2 weeks of dating. Liz wanted her engagement photos to be “simple and natural” so they chose to take them in a golden meadow filled with wildflowers + oaks trees. In fact, Liz grew up down the street from the location so it had a special place in her heart. :) Liz said it felt like “an idealized version” of her typical Sunday which I just love! I also majorly love her flower crown – so perfect. :) Thanks so much to Katie Shuler Photography for the photos and congrats to Liz + Sam!
I also asked Liz to share her proposal story…
“I wish I had some grand, romantic story of our engagement, but it just wasn’t like that. We had been having a rough go at our first year living in Los Angeles, and after getting through some of the roughest parts of our relationship we knew we were ready. One evening last May, over beer and BBQ cauliflower, we just kind of decided. No grand gesture, just two adults in love deciding their future together. A few weeks later, Sam surprised me with my dream ring, a David Yurman ring I’d been eyeing for months. This may not be the most romantic story, but it’s us and it fits.”
So perfect you guys! We wish you both all the best!!
