Happy Thursday, Beauties! Let’s talk about stunners. Stunning engagements, stunning dresses, and of course stunning people. This is exactly what Cyla and Mike brought to their engagement. Cyla blows us away in her sultry red gown, that perfectly captures romance and passion. The venue and complementary flowers are superb touches to this engagement session showing off the deep affection these two have for each other and their commitment to style.
Congratulations Cyla and Mike! Thank you, Christine Bradshaw Photography for this stunning engagement!
15 years!! Cyla and Mike have been together for 15 years! Last Christmas he FINALLY popped the question and everyone and their mother couldn’t be happier. She has more patience than anyone I know. haha. Cyla and Mike are such an intimate couple that they wanted it to show in their engagement photos. So during sunset at Ronald W. Caspers Wilderness Park, I made it happen. The couple is set to wed at Hitchin’ Post Saloon in Temecula Valley this October and it’s going to be the wedding of the century!
From The Bride:
Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?
We started dating 15 years ago when I was just 15! Mike was my high school sweetheart ❤
What makes your relationship special?
We are the best of friends. We crack jokes and are constantly laughing with each other. At times we don’t even need to say anything to one another, just a look can have us cracking up. We just really enjoy our time together, whether its traveling or just out having lunch, we genuinely just have such fun together.
How did you know your partner was the one?
The first night I met Mike I knew we were going to have some sort of relationship, little did I know how far it would go. When I got home from the high school football game the night we officially met, I ran into the living room and yelled to my mom, “Mom, I’m going to marry Mike Miller!!” It was a total joke at the time, but here we are (lol)
Give us all the details about the proposal.
He proposed last December on Christmas. It was our first time hosting a holiday with both our families and it was a madhouse as usual. While we were passing out gifts is when he did it, in the middle of the living room floor. Everyone I loved was there so it was absolutely perfect.
We’re all about the bling… Tell us all about that ring!
I’m a very simple girl at heart when it comes to style, and was so indecisive when it came to ring talk. I couldn’t decide on what style I loved because literally everything I saw I thought was gorgeous, so because of this, I thought I would never get a ring. If I didn’t know what I wanted, how the heck would he know?! Haha, however, he did an amazing job, and because he chose the ring, I love it even more
Are you excited to start planning your wedding day? Do you have any ideas in mind yet?
I started my planning in March and have the big things checked off my list already; venue, dress, and caterer.
