Vicki and Lee

Smithfield, South Australia

  In the beginning…

When Lee joined eHarmony he was instantly matched with Vicki. He initiated contact with her by sending her an ‘Icebreaker’ message. Before responding, Vicki decided to check out his profile. She quickly found herself in a fit of giggles, completely getting his sense of humour. So Lee was given the green light, and she responded hastily.

The first date

After messaging for a couple of weeks, Lee and Vicki started to talk on the phone. Mustering up the courage, Lee decided to ask her out for dinner. Vicki had a rule that she would only go for a casual coffee on a first date, so she was hesitant to say yes. But she decided to follow her heart and accept the invitation.

The pair met on a warm summer night at a little Italian restaurant. They were both nervous but within the first hour they each realised the other possessed the exact qualities they were looking for.

After dinner, Lee insisted on walking Vicki to her car. They both knew how they felt about each other and agreed to talk the next day to arrange another date. Sure enough, that is exactly what happened.

The Proposal

One week before Christmas, Lee said that he wanted to give Vicki one of her presents early. While pulling out a small box from his jacket he quickly said, “It’s not what you think it is”. As he opened the box, a channel-set diamond ring was revealed. Lee then proceeded to give an ‘Oscar award winning’, heartfelt speech, telling Vicki that it was a promise ring. Lee said Vicki would have to wait a little while for the real thing but wouldn’t say for how long.

The day before Christmas, Vicki asked if Lee had any Christmas traditions. He said there were none, except that after lunch he would always go for a walk for a bit of fresh air. So on Christmas day, the pair went for a walk down to the to the quay at the marina. Standing on the spot where they had had their first kiss, Lee got down on one knee and asked her to make him the happiest man in the world. Vicki said “Of course, YES!”. She could barely contain her joy, kissing and hugging Lee.

The Wedding

The wedding is set for February 2012. The pair are planning a picturesque garden ceremony, followed by a cocktail reception.
