How did you meet the love of your life?
We met one week before New Zealand went into a level-4 stay at home lockdown because of COVID-19. We didn’t see each other for 7 weeks and chose to not chat much over the phone. Four days after lockdown he told me how he felt about me!
When did you know that this person had stolen your heart?
The day that Jarret told me how he felt was the day I knew I was going to marry him.
Tell us the story of the proposal.
The day before the proposal, Jarret surprised me in the morning with a flight to Milford Sound (NZ) and had me thinking the whole day that he was going to propose... The next day he took me to this private beach in Queenstown, NZ and had me slipping rocks. When I turned around he was on one knee and asked me to marry him! (We only dated for 3 weeks...when you KNOW you KNOW!)
How long was your engagement? What went into the decision about date and location?
We were engaged for about 5 months. The location was last minute at a beautiful house in Arthur’s Point, Queenstown. I had been praying about a date and God told me Nov. 11, 2020. The next day a friend came to me and told me God told her the same date!(just a little sweet confirmation!)
How would you describe your personal style? What were the most important factors for you as you considered how you wanted your bridal look to manifest?
I enjoy an earthy/boho vibe. Very natural looking and nothing too fancy! I loved the idea of a flower crown and soft curls!
