From the bride, on the proposal:

"What was supposed to be a touristy day in San Francisco with family from out of town, turned into the (second) best day ever (first best is the wedding day, of course). It started with the usual sites of SF, Treasure Island, Crooked St., Pier 39, and we decided to wind up the day with the infamous view of the Golden Gate Bridge. We went to the Vista point near Sausalito. It couldn't have been a more beautiful, fog-free view as the sun was setting. Ashar's cousins suddenly had to "take a phone call" so Ashar and I stood there alone, admiring the beauty of the bridge and the city behind it. The next thing I knew he was on one knee. Before he could even get the words out, "will you marry me?" I burst into tears. We heard a loud cheer, and saw that some of our family and friends were hiding in the background the entire time. The location could not have been more perfect since San Francisco is where I grew up, and where we met. It felt so surreal to actually be engaged to my best friend and soulmate."
