at The Ranch at Rock Creek

Taking trips to Fall River — where we had our first date — became a fond tradition for us and we’d often stay with Val Atkinson, a world-renowned fly-fishing photographer. George let me know that Val would be photographing us on the river because they were creating a few ads for Lost Coast Outfitters. Following a nice dinner at a local lodge, the three of us took a boat out on the river. I was casting the fly rod and Val was taking pictures of me when George tapped me on the shoulder. I was so focused on catching fish and looking good casting on camera that I didn’t bother to turn around! When I finally did, he was on his knee holding a beautiful estate ring. -Rebecca
