There lies the story of us and how we grew into what we are today. On that same spot, in front of ‘their’ Cafe Hesp, he stood. All dressed the part, waiting for her te arrive in her uber. A private boat lay waiting behind him, along with a day filled of surprises ahead. It was a foggy day, but the sun popped out just in time for her to reach him. And so they ascended onto the journey that would follow. On her precious Amstel. They danced to their song, before he kneeled and asked her in a wave of his Spanish mastered words… to be bound to him.
Just the two of us. Our perfect moment.
Our wedding crew was assembling in secret.
It was all part of his bigger plan. And she had no idea.
This is our moment baby, let’s celebrate!
After popping that bottle of champagne to celebrate Cat’s clumsy moment of shouting “YES!” and “Oh gosh it’s gorgeous!” before Yuri even got to ask the actual question – in Spanish, no less! The newly engaged couple continued floating on the Amstel Canal as they passed Carre’s Theatre.
He pulled her closer and whispered: “Are you ready for your next surprise…?”
Engagement party to go
And there they were, their loved ones jumping and shouting of joy. As they climbed into the boat one by one, embracing us with their most heartfelt excitement for our celebration of love, the boat transformed into an instant engagement party. Passing by all faces of Amsterdam, it’s canals and the lifes lived that had brought us to this point in time.
He really had thought of everything:
➼ Her dearest drinks ‣ pink bubblies, G&T’s and Cuba libres
➼ Main snacks ‣ Ham&Cheese chips, sour candy, olives, aged cheese & red velvet cupcakes with sprinkles
➼ And favorite things ‣ heels to match if she felt like it and her dearest shade of Chanel lipstick
