Dear Gavin... (the proposal)

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

 Dear Gavin,

You have made me the happiest woman ever, you have asked me to be your wife. There are hardly words to describe how i feel at this moment. I am so happy and i love that you have made me so happy.


On Friday the 5th October we had our photoshoot with Alana Aston Photography. I wasn't in the mood to model. I was tired and cranky and didn't feel nice in what i was wearing. I wanted to stay home and watch a movie with you.


We drove to Wynyard, to the tulip farm, and found the perfect field. I was wishing that i was the photographer for the shoot here, or at least that i had my camera! The rows and rows of colourful tulips, on a cliff, with a lighthouse, overlooking the ocean was romantic in itself. But just being there with you made it even more romantic.






I'm not sure that anything else you ever do in our life will be as romantic as this day. We had a good shoot, did some cute cuddly shots etc,


And then just at the end, when i had totally had enough, Alana yelled out that this would be the 'world's best shot!'... I was totally confused, weren't all these shots great?? I was telling you to face the camera because you were facing me and that wasn't what you were meant to be doing and i thought that it was weird.

And then - you got down on one knee... I will never forget that moment. I couldn't believe that it was really happening. You looked so cute bending down. Then you pulled out a ring and i know my face must have been hilarious!


The moment when you first knelt down cracks me up! I said 'WHAT!'... For a split second a thought popped into my head 'so glad that Alana is here, this will make a great photo!'... The photographer in me came out a little bit! haha.


And then you said the most beautiful things to me, you said;

'Makayla, I love you very much. You have made me the happiest man in the world ever since i have met you. Now i want to make you the happiest woman, forever. Will you marry me? To be my wife and my best friend forever??' ........



..... And i, of course, said 'YES!' (and that i love you too) ;)

In that moment when you put the ring on my finger (after struggling for a while from the cold!) i felt so ridiculously happy. It was hard to believe that moment was actually happening to me. I felt so happy that i get to have the man that i love, forever. I felt a confirmation that what we were doing was right and that we would be so happy.


I barely ever cry, but i teared up when you proposed to me. You couldn't have known me better, or created a more lovely proposal. I am so grateful that we have photos to remember such a special moment in our lives. I am proud of you for doing things the right way and for asking my dad for his permission and getting down on one knee and all of that.




You are such a great guy. I am so lucky to have you. I have been searching for you ever since i read my first fairy tale. You are my other half, I love you to the moon and back,
Love, your fiance', Makayla xxxxxxxx
