Dominique and Jason

[three_fifth] [dropcap color=”rosy”]W[/dropcap]e are a couple from Joburg who got engaged in August, here is our story:

During the last few months of 2012 we decided to do a road trip of South Africa, starting with 2 weeks in the Kruger Park, my fiance’s favourite place. Little did I know that he had planned to propose to me sometime during our travels!

While in the north of Kruger, he decided the time was right… He phoned my parents without me knowing, and asked for permission from my mom, dad, and younger brother 🙂 On our second last day, he took me to my favourite look-out point, a view of Kruger as far as the eye can see. We climbed onto a huge boulder, and he set up his camera on the tripod pretending to take photos, while actually recording the whole proposal! Before I knew it he was down on one knee, asking me to be his wife! We both burst out crying… It was such a special, simple moment, full of love and happiness.

Because of the last minute decision to propose in Kruger, he proposed with a mood ring from the souvenir shop, given to me in a round seed pod he had stolen from a squirrel playing next to us the day before! So typically him, and so perfectly different from any other proposal 🙂
