Turnip Rose Wedding – Promenade Gardens

Turnip Rose Wedding – Promenade and Gardens – Chris & Jann

The Turnip Rose (Promenade and Gardens) is a wedding/event facility right off of the 405 freeway and Harbor Blvd. in Costa Mesa, CA. The Turnip Rose is also a catering company and they have two cafes!

We have been photographing Turnip Rose weddings since 2009 and are preferred photographers on their referral list.

How did you meet?

We met through mutual friends at a Halloween 5k run in Santa Monica in 2011. We reconnected on the dance floor at Andrea and Louie’s wedding in 2012. We’ve been together ever since…

The proposal…

In the summer of 2013, we sailed aboard a catamaran in the San Francisco Bay on a romantic sunset cruise. In every direction of the catamaran there were spectacular views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the beautiful lights of the City glimmering afar. As the sun started to set, I dropped to one knee, proposed to Jann and promised my love to her. After she said yes, I held her in my arms as we watched the sun set and sailed back to shore. This proposal would initiate an adventure of a lifetime with my best friend.
