A Tale of Surprises and Sentiments Barzley and Isabel's love story began in the unlikeliest of places - a youth camp in Eagle’s Nest back in 2010. A chance encounter that laid the foundation for a future filled with love and laughter. Years later, their paths crossed again as they embarked on the same university degree, leading to a deepening connection that eventually blossomed into a romantic relationship. But it was on December 19, 2020, at an intimate Christmas party, that Barzley decided to pop the question.
The engagement plan took an unexpected twist when Isabel stumbled upon a hidden secret - Barzley had been meticulously planning to propose for months. Determined not to let the surprise slip away, Barzley ingeniously incorporated a scavenger hunt into the proposal. As each clue led Isabel closer to the ring, the anticipation grew until the magical moment arrived. With a wooden Russian doll concealing the engagement ring, Barzley knelt down, and in a heartfelt gesture, asked the question that would change their lives forever. Isabel's stunned silence was swiftly replaced by a resounding "Yes!" and their hearts intertwined in a promise of eternal love.
