Estelle & Steven

[dropcap color=”rosy”]O[/dropcap]n 12/12/1012 my boyfriend Steven gave me a call while I was on the bus on my way home from work. He asked me to wait for him at Cape Town Train station as he was on his way to fetch me. The reason, his parents had some car trouble in Citrusdal (about 2 hours from Cape Town) and we had to go help them. We stopped off in Piketberg to fill up on Petrol. Here my boyfriend made a call to his parents to check if they are still okay (obviously just making sure everything was ready). He then informed me that a friendly farmer has picked them up and we were to meet at his farm. We eventually arrived at the farm, no sign of Steven’s parents. Steven suggested I stay in the car while he checks that everything is okay. A few minutes later a tree filled with fairylights lit up next to where we were parked. I was still uncertain and waited in the car until Steven came back towards the car and assured me everything was fine. He asked me to start at the tree and that he would be with me soon.

At the tree there was a little note saying “follow the memories” I turned around and was greeted by a candle lit walk-way. As I got closer to the walk-way I realized that next to the first candle there was a picture of my family holding the letter “W” there was also a little note reminding me of our first date. I continued down the path, the next candle had his sister’s kids in New Zealand holding the “I” and another note with a reminder of our second date…. This was the same scenario with each candle, either a family or friend (even my boss) holding a letter, sometimes I would be in the photo oblivious to a letter being shown somewhere in the picture. Each person playing a part in spelling out the big question “Will you marry me?”

I eventually arrived at the last photo, Steven holding our two dogs and holding a card “me?” The note asked me to sit down and relax. With this Steven, who has been watching me all along, started singing “I’ll stand by you” while walking over to me. He gave me a hug, got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife.

I off course said yes! From there we sat down on a blanket underneath the beautiful stars and had a romantic moonlight picnic.

    Hi. I’m the Carl from http://saweddingvenues.com/proposals-2013/justine-and-carl/
    I know this is a competition, and that comments mean votes, but to me it is more than that.
    This is about marriage and the people who take that step. You have chosen this path, and my wish is that your relationship may be blessed.
    Congratulations on your engagement and all the best for the big day – and every day of your journey together.

    Hi I really think if there is someone who is very romantic it is Steven. He planned the day very well. Estelle you were so gullable to have him stop for cooldrink ect for his parents. Just love how you trust him now. Never let go of that trust because honesty and trust is what keep marriages going. Good luck you two.
