Jordan booked a private picnic with Audrey Wilkinson vineyard, which included a selection of local cheeses, dips, fruits, and crackers, as well as a bottle of Audrey Wilkinson’s signature wine, the 2019 The Lake Shiraz. He also brought a bouquet of flowers to surprise Steph. They arrived at the vineyard for a wine tasting afternoon, and were then escorted to a secluded in a private hedged garden, with a tablecloth and cushions laid out for them.
Despite the cloudy weather, the vineyard looked enchanting, with misty clouds hovering over the hills and soft sunlight filtering through the rolling hills. Jordan and Steph sat chatting about their day, when Jordan asked Steph to wait while he ran back to the car for his sunnies. (This was my cue to be ready!) When he came back, he asked Steph to stand with him and then he got down on one knee, took her hand, looked into her eyes. And asked: ‘Will you marry me?”
Steph was surprised and emotional, tears overflowing as she nodded and said resolutely, “Yes,” Jordan slipped a ring on her finger, a sparkling diamond set in a gorgeous setting, both of them laughing and crying at the same time. You could not keep the grin from Jordan’s face!
