Stacey & Angelo

[dropcap color=”rosy”]M[/dropcap]y fiancee Angelo and I went away for a relaxing weekend in the Kosmos area of the Magaliesburg, we live in Cape Town so this was quite an adventure. We had a very romantic time with an outdoor jacuzzi and fine dining experience. On Sunday 25th Nov we woke up extremely early and headed off to Bill Harrop’s ballooning experience. We had much-needed coffee and biscuits and watched the burst of colour as the balloons were filled with air…it was beautiful! We were both really looking forward to the experience of being in a hot air balloon and at times, Angelo seemed a bit jittery (I thought it was just nerves about being in the sky).

There were about 6 couples in the balloon in total and our fantastic pilot Maanie. It was a gorgeous morning and the air was fresh against the heat of the balloon’s fire. Angelo and I were in a basket together and enjoying drifting in the sky with the clouds. It was exceptionally serene and quiet and I remember feeling like I never wanted it to end.

As we reached the highest point, Angelo knelt down and declared his love for me. Then he took my hand, opened a grey velvet box and asked me to be his wife! It was so romantic and felt like we were in a movie with the sheer grandeur of our surroundings.

With a giant grin, I looked into the eyes of the first and only love of my life and exclaimed “YES”, he put the ring on my finger and held me tight. His eyes were filled with emotion. As we kissed there was loud clapping from the other couples who were applauding his proposal and my acceptance.

I didn’t need to be in the balloon to feel like I was floating. As Angelo whispered in my ear, the balloon landed gently. The landing location of a hot air balloon cannot be planned and we fell on a golf estate. So there, in the middle of a golf game, we got out of the balloon and drank champagne and orange juice. I couldn’t stop smiling and Angelo kept winking at me. The pilot was ecstatic and everyone was genuinely happy for us. It was absolutely perfect and Maanie even twisted the champagne cork into a replica of a hot air balloon.

Angelo chose the perfect ring, the best time and the most amazing location…I love this man and will love him for the rest of my life!

    What an amazingly romantic story, so poignant the memories will be. Talk about the perfect setting, absolutely guaranteed to take your breath away. When she’s already floating on air to pop the most important question of their lives… It’s pretty much guaranteed to elicit a yes response. Perfect setting, romantic, exciting, pulses racing….what an amazing way to make such a huge commitment! A grand romantic gesture indeed. May the magnitude of the occasion be equal to the extent of your relationship always. Every girl dreams of the big romantic gesture and Angelo delivered in spades. Lucky girl!

  • Adie

    A truely romantic story deserving of all the accolades it gets. I wish the two of you an amazing life together and never loose that sparl\k of magic – it is the glue that keeps the threads together.

  • Glynis Fobb

    Stacey’s story telling of a modern day romance, and her love for the most special man in her life, is the stuff romantic novels are made of. I am sure that although this romantic couple may have their heads in the clouds (don’t we all when love shines in our lives?) but having had the privilege of meeting these two young lovers I know their feet will be firmly planted on the ground. I feel they would be most deserving winners of a fantastic prize; that would simply be the cherry on top of their cake!
