Lisa and Matthew
How We Met
We met a year before dating at my cousin Mario’s 25th birthday party. After doing the same online course, we connected and a wonderful romance blossomed!
How He Asked
2 and a half years and half a month later Matthew proposed and I said yes. The day before he bought me a dress and claimed that he thinks he didn’t spoil me enough. The next day, on a sunny Sunday afternoon in October he took me for a picnic lunch. We got to the place, which was extremely busy and he dragged me through the restaurant without saying a word to the deck on the lake outside.
We were at cape point vineyards in Cape Town. This was the perfect place, as my favorite place in the world is the sea and his is the mountains, and from there you have the perfect beautiful view of both together. So he dragged me down the deck and I saw a row of roses leading up to the middle where there were photos of us in a heart, that’s when I knew something was up.
He put me in the center and instead of the big speech he had planned he was speechless and all he could get out was “Lisa, we’ve been dating for 2 and a half years, I love you so much will you marry me?” Followed by awing of the crowded restaurant behind us! I could stop shaking and said yes and he put a beautiful rose gold diamond ring on my finger. We are getting married this October and I couldn’t he happier and excited to start my life with my best friend!
