The Lovers

John Irving Criste

I was born and raised in Santa Clarita, CA. Even though I am a Southern California native, I ventured into the wilderness of Northern California for four short years to get my BA at Stanford University.

Amanda Ann Parra

Hi! My name is Amanda Ann Parra, Princess Parra for short. I was born on June 14, so that makes me a Gemini. But don't worry my alter ego is not evil, she is a Princess!

Our Proposal

On July 12, 2013 in Lake Como, Italy at the Castadiva Hotel...

It was a beautiful Friday evening when we went for a walk along the lake before dinner. Amanda noticed a bottle of champagne sitting in the distance. She sniffed a proposal in the air but John tricked her by pulling out an Hermes box from his jacket instead of a ring box. Amanda was a bit disappointed. It didn't take her long to notice the diamond ring hanging from inside the white Hermes bracelet. John got down on one knee and Amanda said "yes."

The next day Ana, the "MOB," hired an Italian photographer, Giorgio, to take our engagement pictures right at Castadiva. We couldn't imagine a more beautiful place to have a photo shoot. And the best part is that we were able to capture our proposal story forever!
