Every great love starts with a good story and for the month of love, we dedicate this blog to a perfect pair.
A mutual friend played cupid and asked Jolene if he can give her number to a guy he knows – Denielle. After some thought Jolene shared her number and the texting started, shortly after Denielle drove from Rustenburg to Pretoria to take Jolene on a date – their relationship blossomed soon after they met, and the search was over.
Jolene, a seasoned travel expert, and Denielle, a successful sales executive quickly went from besties to beloveds and Denielle knew that he had met his wife. During a stroll in Kolonnade Shopping Centre they popped into Déonne le Roux Jewellers and Jolene expressed her delight when she saw a trilogy diamond engagement ring, the three stones symbolising friendship, love and fidelity. During their stroll, Denielle quickly slipped away to purchase the terrific piece.
They had long planned a trip to Europe, with an extended visit in Paris and Denielle decided that France would be the perfect setting for the big question. Denielle was also given a small cushion that stated “Trou met my” with a heart-shaped pouch for the engagement ring and decided that he would pop the question right after the new year’s count down. Right in front of a lovely lit Eiffel tower, he asked the question, the answer…YES!
Jolene and Denielle tied the knot at Cussonia Crest (Hartbeespoort) in May 2016, a day celebrated among family and close friends. Denielle then later purchased a brilliant diamond white gold infinity ring from his trusted jeweller and gifted it to Jolene the following year.
The two have since travelled to multiple destinations and continue to add memories to their album. They are also embarking on another big adventure as they are expecting their first born and are excited about the multitude of memories to follow.
