Rebecca and Leighton scream cute! Their first meeting was at the age of ten, at which point teasing was their means of interaction. It was until college though, that friendship eventually turned into romance. We’re absolute suckers for this story, because it seems Leighton never really got over his grade school crush on Rebecca–and just like in the movies, he finally got his girl. Read the rest of Rebecca’s story, alongside their gorgeous images shot by Danielle Poff Photography.
Leighton, being the romantic that he is, was very eager to ask me to be his wife. Before moving down, he had already asked my dad’s permission to marry me. Being a longtime family friend, of course my dad said yes. In the first year Leighton was in San Luis Obispo with me, he had tried to plan about three different proposals. But every time he would get so excited that he would give away the surprise. The actual proposal was on a trip to Santa Cruz last July. We drove up and spent most of the day hiking. Later we went and ate dinner at a restaurant on the beach. After we went on a walk out to a lighthouse where Leighton got on one knee and asked me to be his wife! I said, yes, of course! We have been engaged for 11 months now and literally cannot wait until our September wedding.
