Once upon a time, in a city bakery at 4 in the morning, two people met for the very first time & anyone watching would probably not have thought that this would be the beginning of something very special. In fact, even they didn’t realise what was to be as they sat there barely making small talk while their two friends were trying to organise a “rendezvous”. Off they went without so much as a phone number, but the universe had other ideas… & the very next weekend they unexpectedly ran into each other again at a totally different location & the rest is history ♥
That was five years ago last Christmas & early this year Kyle planned a beautiful surprise proposal, that included all of Elle’s favourite things; Kyle, family, friends & music… oh & sparkly things (THE Ring) & some of Kyles least favourite things (being the centre of attention, public speaking, planning anything & craft, he even hand embellished the ringbox!) but l♥ve makes all things possible. Elle thought they were going to have some dinner & see one of their favourite musicians, Carus (who so kindly & generously agreed to help make it happen during his performance). Unbeknownst to Elle, Kyle had arranged for tickets for all of their family & closest friends, who met outside & were snuck up the back stairs to be watching the big moment from the balcony of The Vanguard By a stroke of luck (which was really meticulous planning by Kyle & the help of The Vanguard staff), they just happened to be seated right in the middle at the front of the stage which was very handy when towards the end of his set, Carus mentioned that he was all for young lovers & wanted to sing a fave of Kyle & Elles. He stopped part way through & said “Elle, I think Kyle has something to ask you” & on bended knee, before everyone, he asked THE question & of course, she said YES!!! Much to the enjoyment, cheers & whistles of a full house of Carus fans & Vanguard patrons & of course the family & friends… It was such a beautiful night for them & so special for their families to be able to share in the beginning of their happily ever after.
