Lovebirds | How did you two meet?
Our lovestory starts in highschool… jip we where highschool sweeathearts. We met when we were only 16 years old at a friend’s birthday house party.
I said Yes! | How did the proposal go down?
So we went on our first ever weekend getaway to Clarens. We went horse riding in the beautiful mountains and decided to make a stop at the top. This was where I saw photos of us around a picnic setup and also our special ‘say things’ in wood cut-outs against the mountain rocks. Of course we love the outdoors… but we also love pranking each other, so he first had to prank me with a fake pink heart-shaped “promise ring”. But I said yes. He laughed because I thought he was serious with the ring and with the promise to “one day” marry me, and that was when he finally got on his knees, with a beautiful ring.
The Big Day | Tell us about the most memorable moment of your wedding day
Of all our special wedding day memories, the most special moment was the moment I was walking down the aisle, and I knew my future husband will be standing there waiting for me. Also, I got him back with the engagement ring prank, and had our wedding rings replaced with a spider in the ring box ;)
I Quote | Describe in one sentence, your wedding day
Our wedding day was the start of a lifetime of blessing and memories to be made with me, my Husband and the Lord next to our side every step of the way.
