I can't Believe its been 21 years since My little cousin and Tina's Niece Michelle was born it seems only Yesterday that she was playing with her toy animals and having sleepovers at our house! now she is a young women just about to start her life and left her Teen Years behind!
We were lucky enough to be invited to this milestone in her life, no sorry make that 2 millstone's in one night! and naturally being the family Photographers got to capture this event.
The Night started off like a normal 21st, Michelle was greeted by guests and their gifts as they arrived at Dunedin Ombrellos cafe to celebrate her 21st,
There were platers of breads and dips with salami, gherkins cheese and nuts followed by hot savouries and quiche, every one was having a blast taking trips down memory lane watching the side show of images that Michelle had put together for the night of when she was a wee baby right through to her 21st.
It was then time for the speech, her dad Stew Started them off with Michelle Love for Animals and how she loved them to death! literally! Then it was her Mums turn to say how she had been a wonderful daughter
Her boy friend Kelly got up to say a few words! he asked Michelle if she could come up and join him he then proceeded to say how wonderful she was and started to pull something from his pocket he then got down on one Knee and said Michelle will you marry me and with that he presented her a ring everyone gasped and said Oh My God, poor Michelle was stunned she didn't know what to do, then all her guests screamed say something! and Laughed, with a we happy but nerves voice she said YES and Kelly proceeded to place the ring on her finger and got up and gave her a BIG Kiss Michelle and Kelly were on a Big High for the rest of the Night!
You can see in Kellys Face the love and Joy that he has for Michelle and how relieved he was that Michelle said YES, i read a post on his Facebook page the next day about the proposal "Thanks everyone I've only just started getting feeling back in my legs and my brain, I'd take doing a speech for english at school over proposing anyday haha." :)
So after all that excitement it was time for Cake!!!!!! Yummy
