Can you guess where these two lovebirds got engaged? After browsing through the farm’s gift store for a few short (but long) minutes, William rushed Jocelyn outside toward the largest Christmas tree on the property. “Umm, I don’t think the little ones are going to be in with the big ones,” she said. “What do you think of this one?” as he pointed to a smaller Christmas tree in return. On it was a tag that said, “JAM, look at me!” Fun fact: JAM is the nickname he gave her. It will be the new initials once they’re officially married. As he got down on one knee, “I felt like I was a deer in headlights,” Jocelyn said. Following the proposal, there was also surprise fireworks too!

Shannon and Steve were married at Tivoli Tool! in Laguna Beach, Calif on September 15. The couple opted to have a first look prior to the ceremony with the sand between their toes along the Pacific Ocean. Shannon wore a sweetheart ruched wedding gown accented with a beaded embellishment and carried a eco-friendly bouquet of succulents, roses, dahlias, berries, and scabiosa pods. To make her maid of honor stand out, she wore a coral chiffon dress whereas her bridesmaids wore aqua chiffon dresses. Steve said “I do” to his bride in the garden courtyard next to a waterfall backdrop. Guests were escorted to their seats with ombre tags attached to vintage keys. As the sun set, twinkling lights and heart-shaped paper decor hung overhead as the newlyweds performed their first dance and cut the three-tiered wedding cake topped with glittery signage.
