Proposal: 4th July, 2020
Location: Atze's Corner Wines, Nuriootpa
"Our ‘Yes’ Day, where Carlos not only popped the bottle of wine, but also the question!
Carlos planned a ‘birthday surprise wine tasting’ that turned into the most perfect proposal. It was the best cover up and I had no idea what the day was about to become!
Once we arrived at Atze’s Corner, we were led to a balcony that overlooked a picturesque vineyard. We sat under the warm heater with blankets on our laps and soaked it all in. The ‘wine tasting’ started, where full glasses were poured and the bottle was left. I began to wonder what wine tasting package Carlos had ordered and who was planning to drive home! Nevertheless, we sat back, drank and looked out over the vineyard in silence.
I then saw Carlos stand, turn to me and get down on a knee. Carlos spoke a few words and asked me to marry him. With a teary ‘yes of course’, that ring was on! We sat and drank in admiration. With already heightened emotions, a full cheese board was brought out - the perfect day! As we dug in, I kept asking Carlos, ‘is this real?', 'are you serious?’. With a cheeky ‘would you like me to take the ring back?’ comment, we laughed and celebrated. We sat out on the deck in awe and once emotions had calmed, we began sharing our news to family and friends.
Atze’s Corner is a special place for us. The planning, service and love they showed made this day run smoothly for a nervous Carlos. Our ring from Class A Jewellers is stunning - I cannot stop looking at how perfect it is. The past few days have been full of congrats, celebrations and champagne. We are feeling so overjoyed, loved and excited for our future. Thank you to everyone involved in our best day, our ‘Yes’ day."
