Simeon & Savannah's Proposal Story in San Clemente

How did you meet?


What is your love story?

Summer of 2020...the year we met working together at Grand View Camp. While there is so much to be said about us & our story, here's one little piece that sticks out to me. I remember meeting you for the first time when you arrived with your church's work group to help build the camp's observation deck. I remember thinking, "dang.. this pretty blonde girl can WORK." I would carry one fairly-long 2x4 up the narrow, rocky trail on the steep hill where the deck would be, then I'd see you coming up carrying two of them! So l'd go back down to the truck and pick up three this time (in my competitive spirit I thought, "I can't let this gal carry more wood than me!") and then I'd see you passing me carrying three as well! You push me to work hard with how hard you work. You remind me that I can always push a little harder when I think I'm at my end. I've never met anyone so determined, strong-willed, adventurous, wild-spirited, and bright in my entire life.

What made you choose this proposal destination?

It was her favorite spot in the world and grew up going to vacation there!

What is your proposal story?

I told my girlfriend, Savannah, I was planning a trip to meet with an old friend at the beach and that we’re gonna meet at the pier. Little did she know that there was no friend I was meeting and that she was going to be coming home as my fiancé! We drove 6hrs from Phoenix and somehow it all worked perfectly!!
