Tamara and Curtis were set up by a mutual friend, Jessica, who has matchmaking down to an art: of the four couples she has set up, three have tied the knot; Tamara and Curtis will be the fourth! Here’s their fairytale engagement story.
Curtis planned a super special proposal that would indefinitely take Tamara by surprise. While Tamara’s parents were in town visiting, the couple enjoyed brunch with both their families at the San Diego Yacht Club the morning of March 24th, when Tamara’s dad mentioned he had to meet a client for a few hours and may not be able to attend dinner later that evening. Curtis, seeing that Tamara was bummed about her dad’s “client meeting,” insisted they plan a fun date night out and hopefully her parents could meet up later. The two dressed to impress and headed to Herringbone, one of their favorite spots in La Jolla. They sat at a romantic table for two where they enjoyed catching up on the last few days spent with their families. Curtis then took Tamara’s hand from across the table, and began a more serious conversation. He expressed his love for her, and that he was ready to spend the rest of their lives together! He got down on one knee and proposed with a gorgeous ring. Tamara immediately said “YES!” as patrons and staff at Herringbone clapped and a server snapped photos of the special moment.
