We're excited to share with you our exciting news! We are officially engaged! On the 2nd of April Adam organised a lovely proposal at a local garden in West Auckland. Under the pretence of meeting up with friends there, he led me to a beautiful area he had set up earlier in the morning, followed by a surprise family afternoon tea at home to celebrate. After nearly 3 years of dating, we are so excited and ready for this next chapter!
Adam is known for never doing things without meaning, including the choice of a raw emerald as the main stone on my ring! Here's the meaning behind it:
The colour choice was inspired by the following scripture which he had engraved on the ring:
"Oh! May the God of green hope fill you up with joy, fill you up with peace, so that your believing lives, filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit, will brim over with hope!" - Romans 15:13
As I haven't worked since mid way through 2013 because of my heart condition, he wanted something that would encourage & inspire me and fill me up with hope & joy as we start this new chapter! I am definitely filled with lots of joy that's for sure!
Here are some snaps from our special day!
Thanks to everyone who helped make this day possible! Credit to Nathan from Thomas Video for the photos!
And shout out to Erin our gorgeous friend from Rosebud and Willow for all the flowers! Including this ginormous bouquet!!
Excited to start planning our big day!
Until next time,
Adam & Kirst
