Logan & Maris
1) How did you meet and fall in love?
We met at a mutual friends tennis night on Valentine’s Day, Logan was ditched by his date and I had ditched my own date so as fate had it, we were both single on Valentine’s Day 🙂
He ended up dropping me home that night and I accidentally stole his jandals out of his truck (had a few wines that night!!) so he had to contact me to get them the next day and from there, we started dating and it all began!!
After a few months of dating, we went to Indonesia for 6 weeks together on a surfing holiday and that just solidified things even more for us. After coming home to NZ, we moved in together and that was that!!
2) Tell us about your proposal?
We were down in Queenstown on a brilliantly clear day snowboarding up at Coronet Peak in July and we walked up the very top at the end of the day and the crowds cleared and Logan proposed with the ring in a snowball.
Logan used to snowboard professionally so it was the perfect setting and was on one of the mountains he grew up snowboarding on.
Once we walked back down to the lift, the entire mountain had cleared out aside from the ski patrol doing their last checks and we got a radio message out to congratulate us on our engagement and we got to ride the mountain as the sun was setting, just the two of us with no one else in sight which was so magical! It was perfect.
2) Tell us about your Nolan and Vada engagement ring and why you chose it?
Our ring is a stunning blue sapphire with 3 tiered diamonds on each side set in an 18kt gold band. The stone is perfect and unique, I didn't want the everyday diamond ring.
I love the ocean and the blue reminds me of the sea. Looking forward to admiring it for a lifetime!
