Melanie + Tim | Joshua Tree Wedding

How did you two meet?
At the freshman dorms at UCI.

Tells us a little about the proposal.
On our first visit to Japan together (Tim's first time there, but I go every year), we went to the Fushimi Inari Shrine (in Kyoto). Tim was oddly nervous the entire time and proposed when we came out of the Torii Gate Tunnel. The tunnel goes around in a loop up a mountain, which symbolizes transition and the beginning of a new life as you walk through.
