Alice and Chuck met in Washington D.C. where they both went to medical school. They first crossed paths in 2011 and instantly became friends. They officially did not start dating until 2012. Chuck proposed in the summer after they both graduated medical school in 2015, right before they both started residency training in Boston. Alice had absolutely no idea Chuck would pop the question that year because life was so hectic with them both graduating and moving to Boston in the same week. Alice was so surprised when Chuck got on one knee and asked the question on the Del Mar beach. Chuck had also hired a photographer to capture the moment so that they can share it with their families. Alice refuse to share the truly candid pictures of the night because she thinks she is a horribly ugly crier but the whole proposal exceeded her expectations in every way. Alice and Chuck enjoy simple things like cooking and eating. Trying different wines. Grocery shopping. Checking out candles at farmer’s markets. They love trying new brunch places too. They don’t get a whole lot of time together since they both work 80 hour weeks as residents but when they get weekends together, they take road trips around New England. Some of their favorite weekend getaways are skiing in New Hampshire, and eating lobster rolls in Main (in an adorable town called Kennebunkport). Sounds like these two have it all 🙂

We thoroughly loved working t Tom Ham’s Lighthouse! Here’s what someone else thought:
“My wife and I went to Tom Ham’s for our 25th anniversary (7/25). We wanted spectacular views and fantastic food, and we were well pleased. I started with the calamari (my standard) and it was delicious, not greasy though the sauce could have had more kick and zing for my taste. No biggie. My wife had the bluefin crudo, caught by the chef himself, so said the waiter. It was delicious, especially with the citrus bits. I had the diver scallops for the entree – beautifully cooked and super delicious. The melted leeks, crispy artichokes, Guajillo Grits, and Andouille Sausage all made for the perfect meal. My wife had the pan seared duck breast and it was to die for. It could have been rendered more, the skin more crispy, but omg it was delicious.
Now here’s a funny thing. When we arrived we were wished happy anniversary, but apparently no one told our waiter. This wasn’t a problem because he was super nice as it was and mentioning anything to him would have resulted in a free dessert like the folks behind us got, and we weren’t there for a free dessert. I just am puzzled as to why the waiter wasn’t told.
What’s important is our overall experience, and we are still talking about the food. This was our third visit to San Diego, and first to Tom Ham’s. Next time we go San Diego, we’ll be going to Tom Ham’s again, for sure!”
