Before asking Courtney May to marry him on an Oregon beach on Thanksgiving Day 2010, Colin Neil, 26, got permission from her grandparents.
“Courtney always visits her grandparents in Coos Bay over Thanksgiving. This time I tagged along,” Neil said.
The foursome drove to Bastendorff Beach, and with May’s grandparents watching from the car, Neil led his girlfriend of four years to the beach and asked her to marry him.
The couple exchanged vows at the Harborside Grand Ballroom in Newport Beach on April 14. Purple, green and white flowers dressed up the reception hall and Kevin Miso kept 110 guests entertained with acoustic guitar at dinner.
Neil said his favorite part of the night was dancing with his wife.
“We took dancing lessons in the weeks before the wedding and we enjoyed showing off our new moves very much.”
