Chris probably didn’t retain much “tour information” from their Hearst Castle Cottages and Kitchen Tour, since he had a box in his pocket and was anxiously awaiting the perfect moment to propose marriage! As the tour ended, he led his bride-to-be Ani to a secluded corner overlooking the rolling hills and majestic ocean. (I absolutely love being a secret agent – following couples until the big moment!) They are both architect students so being surrounded by Julia Morgan‘s designs – from Hearst’s guest houses, pools, and most of the grounds, was perfectly apropos. Ani was so surprised she cried with joy…I almost started too.
