Elmarie and Dave
Elmarie and Dave[three_fifth] [dropcap color=”rosy”]I[/dropcap]n 2010, my boyfriend at the time, Dave Martin, took me to Las Vegas to see Cher live in concert for my 50th birthday. What a fabulous way to celebrate such a milestone with your best friend and soulmate, not knowing that the best was yet to come.
On the Friday 29th October, he took me on a helicopter trip to the Grand Canyon. We stopped in the middle of these huge and most beautiful mountains for a champagne lunch. And there, in front of everyone, he went down on bended knee and proposed. It was the most exhilarating experience ever! We had the most awesome sunset on our way back, you could not have asked for a more perfect day with the most perfect man!
We got married (legally) in the smallest church in South Africa which is in Van Reenen with a handful of our family on the 21st March 2013, had the most beautiful surprise wedding night, which was followed the next day on a cruise to the Portuguese Islands, where we redid our nuptials again in front of 74 of our most precious family and friends.
We are truly blessed to have each other and we are looking forward to a beautiful life together and growing old disgracefully
