How we got engaged
Alan is very much into his cars; especially old school Ford muscle cars. We had recently purchased a house and Alan rang me at work and told me that the agent would like to shout us dinner that night as a celebration of the house we just purchased. We decided we would go to Subiaco – a trendy suburb of Perth. When I got home from work I jumped into the shower and I could hear Alan on the phone to a friend. His friend Col had broken down near our house and Alan needed to go get him. He told that me Col, as a favour to us would drop us off to dinner in his other car so we could have a night out….
…When Col and Alan returned to the house to my surprise Col’s other car was a Ford 1971 XY GT HO – his pride and joy – another Ford fanatic!
All this time I thought this is just our lucky day; a free meal and a lift Subiaco! On the way Alan asked if I wanted to take the scenic route to Subiaco and take the coast road to dinner and a stop at Ocean Reef Marina to take some pictures. “Why not, let’s show off!” I replied….
…We stopped for some photos that Col had taken for us. The sun was going down over the ocean, and looked beautiful. Then Col started to walk away. Still with no clue, I was looking away from Alan when I heard my name called, “Sara”, and I turned around to find him on his knee “will you marry me!?” I yelled and cried “yes!” We then got dropped off at the restaurant we went to on our first date! It was very special to me that he had made the experience about the both of us by including a muscle car. Its a day we will both treasure for the rest our lives.
Wedding day highlights:
The highlights for our wedding would have to be the first moment I saw Alan when I was walking down the aisle, the surprise of our guests to see that Alan had towed his own pride and joy up – his Ford 1973 XB Coupe – to the wedding, and the fact that we could spend three days with our guests at the private Elandra Resort in Mission Beach! It was perfect!
