riankas weddings road trip engagement david sune00001We are thrilled to be able to share the Engagement shoot of David & Suné!  Things have been a bit slow with Eskom and the known Load shedding here by us… a term we are all slowly need to get used to it might seem. 🙂  We enjoyed every minute of your engagement shoot, and we can’t wait to photograph your wedding at Green Leaves later this year.  Here is their in-love story of how David proposed:

“We were invited to a “supposed” braai at a friend’s house. David told me that he had to work late and that I would have to take my own car to their house. When I arrived, our friends’ daughter came to greet me at the car and told me that she has a surprise for me and I had to close my eyes. This wasn’t strange to me, as she always came to greet me at the car when we visit and she always has something that she wants to show me, toys, a new puppy etc. So I closed my eyes and she led me through the house. Just when I thought I was home free she led me straight into the glass doors! SMACK in my face, she laughed so hard she couldn’t breathe and finally told me I could open my eyes…

… I opened my eyes to a fairy tale: there were fairy lights around all the trees, lanterns hanging from the branches, a red carpet leading down the stairs toward David where he was standing underneath a dome shaped gazebo (which also had fairy lights all over). David stood there, suit and tie handsome as ever, with a single long stemmed red rose in his hand. As I was walking toward him, I could hardly breathe. He smiled at me and took my hands. He had a beautiful speech prepared of how much he loved me and how he knew that God has, and will always bless our relationship. How he is so grateful that God sent me to him and how he couldn’t wait to see what else God has planned for us. He told me that he could not imagine his life without me. Then, because he knows I love the TV show “The Bachelor” he asked me: “Will you except my one and only rose?” I shouted “JA!!!” and then he went down on his knee took out the ring and asked me: “Would you do me the great honour of becoming my wife?” Again I shouted: “JA!!!” and kissed him before he could even put the ring on my finger…

…we popped open the champaign, and while we were toasting he turned to me and said: “How great would it be if everyone we loved were here to celebrate with us?” just then music started playing and my parents, his parents, my brother and his sisters with their husbands and kids and our closest friends and relatives came pouring out of the house. Everyone congratulated us through the tears and laughs, they had been there the whole time hiding somewhere in the house! And then we had our engagement party with food and drinks and music and dancing, David had planned for EVERYTHING. 

It was the most special night of my life and I cannot wait to be David’s wife!”
