How We Met

The story of how Tim and Jamie-Rae met starts far before a family trip to Ireland where they met for the first time briefly at a horse show in Dublin.

When Tim was a child growing up in San Diego, his dad, Gerry befriended a man named Eddie Macken through their work together with horses in the show jumping world. Over the years Eddie and Gerry’s friendship grew over a common love of horses, golf, and of course, since both men are from Ireland, great Irish whiskey. After many years of knowing Eddie and his sons Stevie and Jamie, there was a new family introduced into the mix, when Eddie married Jamie-Rae’s mother, Kathi. Over the years the families became close, and spent the 2008 Christmas holiday together in Hawaii. This is where Tim and Jamie-Rae spent their first real time together and got to know each other. Over the next couple of years, they would only see each other a few times a year, since she was living in Langley, British Columbia and Tim was in Los Angeles. In this time, Jamie-Rae and Tim formed a great friendship that ultimately laid the foundation for what would become a beautiful and loving relationship.

The First Kiss

When Jamie-Rae and her family came down from Langley to Laguna Beach for her step brother Stevie’s wedding in September of 2010, it was a great opportunity for Tim and Jamie-Rae to spend some time together. After a night out with the wedding party, a small group went back to their hotel in Laguna Beach for a night cap by the pool. As everyone was hopping the fence out of the pool to go to sleep for the night, Tim turned to Jamie-Rae and kissed her with the hope that she would kiss him back. She did, and the rest is history!

The Proposal

January 4th, 2013

Tim and Jamie-Rae were driving back to Los Angeles after spending Christmas with Jamie-Rae’s family in Whistler, British Columbia. After a long vacation, they figured it would be nice to take the coastal scenic route back home. As they drove down the Oregon coast, they came to Natural Bridges Cove, a place where they had stopped at before and figured it would be a good place to stretch their legs after being in the car all morning. As they hiked down the trail that leads to a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean, Jamie-Rae stared to notice that Tim was acting kind of strange and was being very quiet, but she did not think too much of it. Then, when they reached the edge of the cliffs overlooking the amazing rock formations in the ocean, Tim pulled out the ring he had been carrying for weeks and dropped to one knee, knowing that this was the perfect moment to ask Jamie-Rae to be his wife. Jamie-Rae barely managed to get out a “YES”, as she was so overcome with joy and happiness!
