Well our love story is really quite simple. We met around 2010 at Youth (Church on Fridays for young people). He was well a man with few words, we spoke briefly and exchanged numbers where he asked me to be his banquet partner in the year 2010 to his matriculation year ball. knowing how strict my sister was (my parents being the more lenient ones lol). I was hesitant because I knew she would not want me to being the overprotective older sister, I was in Grade 11 and him in Grade 12 so she considered that to be a gap lol. Anyway the summary of it was he was persistent and surely knew that he wanted me as his partner! , and actually came with his dad to speak to my parents and actually convinced them to say yes for me to be his partner!! His very respectful and well behaved this sure was a plus for my parents!! Year after (2011) was mine banquet to and of course I chose him too! we still never dated then,only from 2012 (he waited for me to finish school) and the rest is history!! Sure a Charmer!! 5 years this year! and now his wife!
His proposal was very simple and heart warming surely something that meant the world to me. He picked me up as usual from work, told me that he needed to go to a bathroom asap! and the nearest one close by was "conveniently" Gold Reef City! lol. He then went to the bathroom (where i assumed he went to stash the ring) came out calm as ever me not suspecting anything! upon exiting of the Casino I see a big banner Reading "Will You marry me" held by his sister and my entire immediate family all present!!!! Turned to face him and he was on bended knee!!!! and asked me to make him the happiest man by being his wife!! (Just thinking about it makes me all teary!). I of course said YESSSSSSSS!!! had supper with the fam and the rest is history!!!

We had exceptionally long bullet vases with crystal balls on the inside as well as red and black long feathers filling the vase. We had personalized table menus in frames, done by hubby and I!
