Dou­ble the sur­prise

The Weekend Post - Cairns Eye - - Do -

When Chris King plucked up the courage to ask his beau­ti­ful friend Krys­tal Jo­ce­lyn out on a date, he had no idea she would one day re­turn the favour and sur­prise him with a ro­man­tic pro­posal of her own. Krys­tal says the pair, though lo­cal to Cairns, ac­tu­ally met in Townsville. “We met at ori­en­ta­tion week at JCU, nei­ther of us were at­tend­ing Townsville uni but we were just there for the party and fun times of ori­en­ta­tion week,” she says. “From that day on we be­came close friends.” The cou­ple’s re­la­tion­ship blos­somed in Cairns af­ter Chris “made the brave move” to ask Krys­tal out. Four years later Krys­tal ar­ranged a week­end away for Chris’ birth­day. “Much to his sur­prise there was a wed­ding pro­posal about to take place,” Krys­tal re­mem­bers. “Over din­ner and a glass of wine at Pos­sum Val­ley, Raven­shoe, I popped the ques­tion. Chris was def­i­nitely shocked but filled with hap­pi­ness.” The pair were mar­ried at Palm Cove be­fore 120 fam­ily and friends and cel­e­brated the union at Sap­phire Ridge. They topped off the fes­tiv­i­ties with an in­ter­na­tional hon­ey­moon visit­ing Amer­ica, Spain, Hol­land, Ger­many and Sin­ga­pore.
