We were jumping up and down excited when Matthew told us he wanted to plan a surprise proposal for his love, Renee.
We got to meet Renee and Matthew through one of our Disney wedding couples, Rebecca + Mike. Renee is Rebecca’s sister so we were also super stoked to get to hang out with their awesome family in one of the most precious moments in their lifetime – their proposal!
Matthew is such a romantic…and a serious super athlete. This couple is a regular at races and triathlons. Matthew actually coaches triathletes (David’s officially signed up with him now!).
So when he told us he got the whole Kring & Chung Newport Beach Triathlon staff as well as Renee’s wonderful family and friends in on the plan for the proposal, we knew it’d be perfect.
And it was the perfect proposal.
Matthew stopped Renee right before the finish line.
Renee’s family and closest friends were lined up right by the finish line cheering with their own triathlon/proposal inspiration posters!
Renee’s dad was also running in the triathlon and got to be there right when they finished and right then…
Matthew went down on one knee to ask Renee to be his wife
Their loved ones cheered and hugged them as soon as they came in from the finish line.
Matthew topped the day off with a surprise brunch with Renee’s loved ones to celebrate the big event <3
What a Romeo!
Congratulations, Renee and Matthew! We’re absolutely THRILLED at your engagement. You two are seriously a freakin’ adorable, precious couple and wonderful people. We’re blessed to know you and to get to photograph your love story.
Praying all the best for you both in this amazing season <3
With our love,
The DPARK Family
