Joy Proposal Story: Mikaela & Hunter

by Kelsey Vickers
Joy Proposal Story: Mikaela & Hunter

Give us the proposal details! When? Where? How?

We went whale watching during the day, which is Mikaela’s favorite thing to do! As we were driving to dinner afterward in Monterey, Hunter got off a few exists too early. Mikaela was a little confused but figured he knew where he was going. We made a left-hand turn and right in front of us was the Monterey County Fairgrounds. We had gone to the 50th Anniversary of the Monterey International Pop Festival in June and had the most memorable time soaking in the history and seeing some stellar bands. It was such a special place for us, Hunter thought it’d be a sweet place to ask Mikaela to marry me. We parked the car, reminisced a bit, and Hunter took her to the stage area and asked her if she’d spend her life with him. We are honored to say that we got share the same stage as some of music’s greats like Jimmy Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead, Otis Redding, and so many others. We just can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together!
