Mary and Dillon are such an adventurous couple! They wanted some gorgeous sunflower photographs that are a staple to the summer months, as well as photographs up at the Lake! They love taking hikes together, and traveling to all different places all over the world!
Dillon and Mary met in October 2016. They remember getting dinner and going on a hike, then staying up and chatting until 3 am. They have shared a love of travel since the beginning when they decided to take a trip to Disneyland. They said, “I Love you” for the first time on this trip, on November 4th! Since then they’ve been to Portland, Disneyland again, New Orleans, and Hawaii!
But it wasn’t easy at first, because Dillion, a Police officer, had to work very hard in the Academy. With their young son Kai, Mary says they needed to focus on their family. Dillion, working at the San Fransisco Police Department, was only able to come home on weekends, but Mary said despite this, he still was an amazing father and boyfriend.
So, they took this opportunity to focus on love, and decided to move to Vacaville, so Dillon could be closer to his job, and still come home everyday to be with his family.
Mary and Dillon have an amazing engagement story. Mary says, “We went to Italy in March to celebrate Dillon’s birthday. We flew for 17 hours and were completely exhausted. Our flight got in at about 10 pm, and it took a while to get to our hotel. By the time we got to our hotel, it was almost 11 pm & the hotel was completely closed.
Dillon said we should check our the fountain down the street, so we did.
No one was out since it was so late. Dillon kept asking me to take a picture & finally someone offered to take our picture.
As soon as we were in a good position for our picture, he knelt down on one knee & asked me to marry him!
It was the best day of my life, But our second day there, everything closed due to COVID, which means our flight home got canceled!”
But Mary and Dillon didn’t give up because of COVID Luckily, they were able to make it back into the US without any issues, and now, are planning an amazing Wedding for this Winter! And someday, they plan on going back to Italy to fully enjoy the trip!
