For Kathleen Jaimes and Christopher Bartolone, it all began at a party–at a party’s dessert table, to be exact–where Christopher asked Kathleen which cupcake he should choose.
They kindled a friendship, and she showed the newly transplanted Chicagoan around San Diego. When Kathleen shared that a job opportunity required relocation to Los Angeles, Christopher declared his love and willingness to request a job transfer of his own. After exploring L.A. together, the two became engaged at Laguna Beach’s Surf and Sand Resort, where Christopher got down on one knee with a ring inside a cupcake. When they said “I do,” it was in front of 81 guests at Saint Francis Chapel in Balboa Park.
