How did you meet and get engaged?
We met each other at our own home town at the beach. Our friends went to the beach, and I didn’t have a towel with me. Klaas had a chair and a towel too, so I used his towel. We also got engaged at the same beach. We had a love shoot, and Klaas communicated with the photographer that he would ask me the big question. So the photographer told us that we had to stand with our backs to each other, so Klaas could take his ring when I couldn’t see it. After that, she said that we can turn around and look at each other. At the moment when I turned I saw Klaas down on one knee and he asked the big question.
Describe your wedding:
Our wedding was amazing! It was better than we dreamed of. Our program started with the first look. We met each other for the first time at a beautiful place at the hotel. After that we went with our photographer and videographer to more beautiful places outside the hotel. When we came back we started with the lunch. The hotel had a beautiful table for us, with a lot of flowers and other beautiful decorations. After lunch we had the ceremony and we also asked our amazing God for His indispensable blessing. We also had coffee and a beautiful big cake. In the afternoon we had an amazing dinner. And last of all the party! Our special colour was blush pink.
