Congrats to the future Mr. and Mrs. Goeken, the true high school sweethearts who, through love, will overcome every challenge. Sierra was completely surprised when Seth dropped to one knee at the beach in Point Arena asking her and their Yorkie, Ellie May, to spend forever with him.

Through challenges of long distance and the passing of Sierra’s mother, their love grew stronger. Family values have been the foundation of this couple’s relationship and when they moved back to Mendocino County to be closer to their families, Seth FINALLY realized it was time to make it official. We had no idea Seth was such a romantic, he had the entire engagement planned out from start to finish. After getting her father’s blessing, Seth then enlisted the help of Sierra’s three sisters to pick out the perfect ring. What Sierra thought was just a cute couple’s trip to the coast, turned into a romantic sunset proposal on the beach.

The greatest thing one can find in life is their soulmate. This is the type of couple you meet and envy for their friendship, love, and loyalty to one another. Your family and friends can’t wait to see your love grow on this amazing adventure called marriage, plus we can’t wait for the open bar at the wedding. Cheers to Seth and Sierra and the next chapter of your love story.

Love your friends and family
