At their engagement session at UWA with Karissa and Matt, we reminisced about their love and spoke of their dreams for their future together and their upcoming wedding.
Matt took Karissa by the hand and weaved through the gardens of Versailles on a cold and foggy winters day. She was tired after much walking and many glasses of wine at lunch but he persisted, “Let’s just have a look over here …” and she followed him towards a secluded garden. As they turned another corner he looked back to her and said, “I have one more surprise for you.”
The first surprise you see was perhaps what every girl dreams of. Just a few weeks earlier he’d presented her with a card and when she opened it she saw a picture of the Eiffel Tower on the front. She laughed and looked at Matt, “Oh did you get me tickets to Paris for my birthday!” and then as she opened the card, she found flight details and photos of the city of love as a winter dreamland. Yes, he had brought her tickets to Paris.
So here as they explored the romantic gardens of Versailles where lovers have met for hundreds of years, Matt fell to one knee and presented Karissa with an engagement ring that symbolised his love for her and his promise to love her forever.
