Big Sur Engagements and Beyond


Written by Diana Lustig


There’s a stretch of Highway 1 between San Jose and Big Sur that feels like coming home for Crystal and Ysh. It’s a beautiful juxtaposition between a rocky cliff edge and the ocean, both dynamic and familiar. The cliff sometimes shrinks against the highway, sometimes stretches away from the road making room for rolling grass. The ocean is equally variable, changing moods from serene to choppy depending on the season.


While anyone who’s driven this road has a sense of awe at California’s beauty, the area holds special significance for Crystal and Ysh, who drive to Big Sur from the Bay Area once a year. It’s not just a freeway, it’s dozens of hours spent in the car daydreaming, laughing and listening to music together. It’s an area charged with nostalgia and their love for one another. It’s a place where good memories overlap to create a sacred space all their own.
