Mr Jason Karwowski (2015)
After a lovely date at the Botanic Lights show in 2014, during the early stages of our relationship, it seemed like the perfect place for me to pop the question a year later. So with my now wife none the wiser, we arrived at the Gardens on 4th November 2015. We bought our drinks and set out exploring, only for my beer to disappear much quicker than normal as the nerves kicked in! So having found the perfect spot I got down on one knee, brought out the ring and popped the question. Thankfully it was a “yes” and we have now been married for 3 years. With our son turning 1 in October, we look forward to visiting with him soon and continuing the tradition of seeing the gardens under the lights.
