About Me:

Hailing from the distant shores of Cape Town, South Africa I am a city girl with farm girl aspirations. I have many passions, including shoes and shiny things. I am always up for a new adventure, never quite sure where the path will lead me. I am an event and wedding planner by trade and am excited to finally get to bring my own vision into being and even more excited to be able to share it with the people I love. Cape Town is my home and to me it is the most amazing place in the whole world. It means so much to me that I am going to be able to share my home and a little insight into my upbringing with my new family and friends from all over the world. I am blessed to have found a man who I want to share my adventures with and I am so excited to travel down this path together.

How We Met:

Cody (Gerber Babe) and I did not meet under your average circumstances. In fact, nothing about our relationship has been average - hence the destination wedding :) For most of our relationship, we have lived abroad and traveled together for some extent. We have settled, for now, in Washington D.C. We first met in Cape Town, South Africa. Cody was a US Marine and was at that time stationed in Luanda, Angola in dire need of a vacation and relaxation. I was working PR and always up to meeting a new face. Cody was booked to fly to South Africa for work and he had heard about the beauty of Cape Town so he began to plan and ask around for things to do. It was at this point that Madam Fate started playing her games and brought us together through modern technology and later through friends and good times.

The Engagement Story:

Three duty stations into our relationship Gerber Babe was being shipped to London England. As a British Citizen (Thanks Dad!) I saw this as an opportunity for us to finally live in the same city. So I made the necessary plans to relocate my life for love. Cody came down to Cape Town to help extract me and all my luggage, little did I know that he had a plan up his big sleeves. Although I made the surpirse very difficult as I was the one doing the planning for the trip and all of the driving, he managed to take me up my favourite mountain path with champage and a picnic blanket. He asked to spend the rest of his life with me as we watch the sun dip into the gorgeous ocean. (Tear...)
