It was 2015 and Melissa was gathering with all her family and friends to celebrate her birthday dinner. She had no idea Leilani even wanted to get married. Leilani had both of their kids wear t-shirts underneath button up shirts. Her son’s shirt read, “Melissa will you marry my mommy?” Melissa’s daughter’s shirt read, “Mommy will you marry Leilani?”

Leilani had the kids go over to Melissa and unbutton their shirts to reveal their t-shirts underneath… and when Melissa turned back to look at Leilani, she was holding out a ring! Melissa broke into tears with a huge smile on her face, and Leilani asked her if she would marry her. Over the next year they traveled back and forth from Arizona to Temecula, California to plan the vineyard wedding of their dreams.
