Mike & Katie’s Proposal

Hey Jayne, 

Everything went perfectly; I had told Katie that we were heading up to Mangawhai heads to my Aunties batch and needed to leave home very early to catch my auntie before she goes to work to grab the batch keys.  Just before we turned off at the Airport turn off I told her “I have a confession, we are not going to Mangawhai” (should have seen the stunned look on her face) I  give her a series of  travel related clues, the third one being tickets to cairns and a fake letter stating I had won a top sellers competition which included accommodation, rental car and spa package.

She was a whole mix of emotions (and had no clue it was a trip for anything more) I managed to sneak away from her  at the airport  to pick up the ring, I even came back with another distraction/clue.  Koru lounge passes.

She was blown away when we checked into the beachfront resort “Angsana” at Palm Cove, I had booked a 90 minute spa package for her right away so I could go about my business talking to the restaurant staff, picking up the essential wine and something to drink to calm the pre proposal nerves.

I had told Katie that we should eat at the restaurant tonight after our long flight and when we arrived the wait staff offered us the beach front dining option (which I had already arranged but got them to down play it) Katie just thought it was something they do… We had a private table on the sand, under palm trees an amazing view of the beach, wine and the best service I have ever had! Even with all of this going on Katie didn’t suspect anything!

We had an amazing meal and then I managed to drop onto one knee and pop the question (after a little speech)… She was blown away and did say YES! Which is the most important thing, the lighting was awesome for the Ring to sparkle at her.

We spent the next day out at the Great Barrier Reef scuba diving. So all in all an amazing proposal trip!

Thank you so much for the time, effort and most of all the patience you have shown me.  The Ring went down a treat and has allowed Katie to show it off confidently…

Mike & Katie
