The Proposal Chronicles: Beach Edition

Updated: Jun 5


Proposing to your special someone is something that should never be forgotten. It often becomes a story shared with family, friends, and perhaps eventually, future generations. At Paper Birch Collective, we love being able to help couples cherish these once in a life time moments with beautiful pictures.

This blog post is dedicated to not just one lovely couple, but two lovely couples who popped the big question. We will start with Francis and Wendy's proposal at Crystal Cove in Newport Beach, then end with Jonathan and Lauren's picnic proposal at Treasure Island Beach in Laguna Beach. We were so thrilled to be part of these exciting memories!


Francis & Wendy

📍Crystal Cove, Newport Beach

Captured some sweet candid moments before Francis asked Wendy to marry him. The location, weather, and time of day was perfect for this special moment. ☀️

As you can see, this intimate proposal set up was beyond adorable. All of the white decor looked so dreamy with the calm blue ocean in the background. The hanging pictures were also a beautiful and unique touch. ✨

The moment he got down on one knee and she said "YES!" 🎉

Congratulations to Francis & Wendy! 💍

On this sunny day, Jonathan planned a romantic surprise picnic on the beach where he would pop the big question. Here, Jonathan and Lauren make their way down to the sand on Treasure Island. Little does Lauren know, a huge surprise awaited her! 💍

Can you believe how lovely and luxurious this picnic was?

A big shout out to The Charming Picnic for the beautiful set up! 😍

These pictures of when Jonathan gets down on one knee are priceless. There is so much emotion in each photo. You can just feel Lauren's surprise, love, and joy for this special moment. 🥰

Cheers to Jonathan & Lauren! 🥂
