Chimdi and Xia | Napa Wedding Photographer

The Proposal

(told by Chimdi)

“I took Xia on a private cable car tour of San Francisco. She didn’t know it was private, she just thought no one else showed up for the tour since it rained a little. We went to a few of the city’s landmarks including the Golden Gate Bridge. We stopped at the Palace of Legion of Honor and took a self-guided tour. After we walked out of the building I proposed right in front of the beautiful site. My proposal sounded something like this “Will you be my wife, with your cute self?” And she said yes!”

Xia, what do you love about Chimidi?

“I love his love for God and his unwavering faith in God. I love his ability to always stay calm and collected no matter what; he keeps me sane and grounded. I love his work ethic, he has big dreams and he works hard to achieve them and he always encourages me to do the same. I also love how he always makes me laugh, sometimes I take life and myself too serious and he makes life more fun.”

Chimdi, what do you love about Xia?

“I love the fact that she is a God fearing woman first. I love the love she has for me and how deep it runs. I love the way she always carries a part of me with her no matter where she goes. I love the fact that she will follow me to the end of the earth, all the while making sure I don’t do anything silly to fall over the edge.”

Chimdi plays for the Oakland Raiders so it was fun incorporating some of his profession into their engagement session.
