Auberge de Soleil Wedding – Lisa & Heath
Lisa and Heath met through a mutual friend that insisted they go out on a date. On their first date, they shared a bottle of wine and conversed until the restaurant closed. Since then between their busy work schedules, they have been fortunate enough to travel to Hawaii, Caribbean, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic. They share a passion for fine wine and dining, hence why they chose to have our wedding at Auberge Du Soleil. They both enjoy the outdoors, hiking and fitness. Heath is an avid freediver with a passion for spearfishing. Lisa has been involved in multiple medical mission trips most recently to Kenya.
Lisa is a certified registered nurse anaesthetist (CRNA) providing anaesthesia to a variety of patient populations and works at three different hospitals, and Heath is finishing his general surgery residency at UC Davis and will continue as a fellow in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. They plan on going on mission trips together once Heath is finished with training.
When it came to the proposal, Heath was presenting at the California Society of Plastic Surgeons meetings in Monterey and Lisa accompanied him on the trip. After the morning sessions and his presentation, they went to Point Lobos National Park for a hike. Heath proposed on a secluded peninsula overlooking the ocean.
He had planned to propose while hiking Napali Coast in Kauai the following week after the conference. However, the more he thought about travelling through TSA with the ring made him nervous. He says that could see the TSA searching his bag and pulling out the ring in front of her ruining the surprise!
