Paulino and Jia Qi started with a relaxing time at the spa! Enjoying a bit of pampering before they headed off to dinner. Based on our conversations with Paulino, a beach sunset proposal would make for the perfect location! So, after experiencing the spa, Paulino detoured to the beach to appreciate the sunset with his love of his life.

With each of our couples, once we have listened to their vision we then focus on location. Based on our conversation with Paulino, a beach proposal was the perfect location for him to drop down on one knee, pour his heart out and ask the woman he loves to spend the rest of their lives together!
