After having seen Trevor and Angela’s popular proposal photos online, David contacted me because he had a similar idea for proposing to his girlfriend Tobie, while they visited Disney’s California Adventure from their hometown of Clovis with Tobie’s two girls. David’s plan was admirably sweet and simple: Sit for a caricature sketch with the artists at Paradise Pier, and propose to Tobie when the portrait (also depicting him proposing to her!) was revealed. It SOUNDS simple enough until you arrive and have to deal with crowds of people walking by and discussing the sketch as it unfolds, not to mention Tobie’s two little girls who grew increasingly excited as they realized what was about to happen.
Crystal, the stellar caricature artist, made sure to write a sign imploring people to not spoil the surprise when they saw the picture. I think there were some close calls, but by the look on her face in the photos, I’d say Tobie had NO IDEA!
Congratulations to Tobie & David and their family!
