Thank you for coming! I’m so glad you could make it. Grab a glass of sparkling wine or juice and mingle away.
Just a bit of background about how Mr and I met:
We met in November of 2011 at the office kitchen where we were warming up our lunches. He initiated contact with a friendly “Hello” and we took it from there. I just started a Twitter account, where he Direct Messaged me for a few days until we met for breakfast, which turned into a game of putt putt and late lunch. He told me that he had a daughter and I told him how old I was at the time and he thought I was too young for him. By the end of the date I was convinced that the date went well, but we wouldn’t see each other again. Well needless to say, we continued to see each other. We started a business together in 2012 and had our son in 2013. He is currently working abroad so we have a long distance relationship (for now).
How he proposed:
We’ve been looking for rings for a while and we finally found one that both of us loved. He proposed just after midnight on New Years Day in his parent’s living room. We had just arrived there on the 31st. We hardly see them, because they live in another state that’s about 12 hours away from Cape Town. We were gathered as a family in the living room and started the count down and he got on one knee and proposed. Mr said about two words before I began crying. I was crying so much that I couldn’t even say yes and he couldn’t complete his proposal speech. I found out that he had texted my parents before he was going to propose so they were in on it the whole time.
Now I want to celebrate this event with you. So let’s get this party started!
