Marce and Jeanne Almaraz and Joan Kuhl joyfully announce the engagement of their children, Elizabeth Ann Almaraz and Jim McClintic Kuhl.
Elizabeth and Jim were high school sweethearts, who stayed together through their college life.
Elizabeth, the eldest of three girls, graduated from Corona del Mar High School in 2004. She received her undergraduate degree in Business from Cal State University San Marcos. She is currently an Executive Team Lead at Target in Costa Mesa.
Jim, the youngest of four, graduated from Corona del Mar High School in 2001. He started his own company, Berma, which specializes in extreme sport fashion and is based here in Southern California (BermaClothing.com).
Prior to their engagement, Elizabeth would play the Beyoncé song, “Put A Ring On It” all the time around Jim. Jim got the hint and proposed to her during a wine tasting trip to Temecula. Adding to the excitement of a yearlong engagement, the couple is also in the process of buying their first home in Costa Mesa.
Their wedding will be celebrated at Our Lady Queen of Angels in Newport Beach on Saturday, May 14th, the same church where Elizabeth’s parents were wed 28 years ago.
