Rudi & Catie | Wedding Day

RUDI & CATIE’S LOVE STORY & WEDDING VENDORS:
Tell us about your love-story leading up to your special day – how did you meet one another?
We met via mutual friends. At first we were only friends but later on we started looking at each other differently and fell in love shortly afterwards. We were at umhlanga and Rudy even went on his one-year when he asked me to be his girlfriend. About a year-and-a-half to two years later he asked me to spend the rest of our lives together.
How did your husband propose to you?
 We were in plettenberg Bay and I kind of suspected that he would propose sooner or later. We went skydiving and I actually suspected that he might ask me then but he did not. About 2 days later we went on a hike,  the robberg hike; we ended up on a small deck with a beautiful Outlook of the ocean and then Rudi flew his drone all around us. Later the drone was very close to us and the next moment he went on his one knee and proposed. We then finished our hike and met up with my best friend and her husband and celebrated.
