Adrian Su­mar­jadi, a 31-year-old con­sul­tant Jan­nike Juana, a 24-year-old au­di­tor Lo­ca­tion: Vineland Es­tates Win­ery Wed­ding date: Au­gust 10, 2019 Pho­tog­ra­phy: Sim­ply Lace Adrian and Jan­nike talked about get­ting mar­ried through­out the en­tirety of their six-anda-half-year re­la­tion­ship. Jan­nike knew the ques­tion was com­ing—at one point, she even searched the house for a ring—but she thought he might ask on their up­com­ing trip to Ja­pan. When he told her he was tak­ing her on a wine tour, she didn’t sus­pect a thing.

Adrian spent the bet­ter part of four months plan­ning the pro­posal. On the ap­pointed day, they drove two hours to the Vineland Es­tates Win­ery. Their guide es­corted them to the grapevines and abruptly walked away, which Jan­nike thought was odd. “I fig­ured it was just a bad tour,” she says.

Adrian led her to a clear­ing in the vine­yard. There was an arch­way draped in flow­ers and pink fab­ric, and rus­tic bar­rels cov­ered with pho­tos chron­i­cling their re­la­tion­ship. A vi­o­lin­ist emerged and started play­ing Pachel­bel’s Canon, the song she al­ways imag­ined her­self walk­ing down the aisle to. Laugh­ter and happy tears en­sued when he got down on one knee, and in a serendip­i­tous turn, the rain held out un­til after she said yes.

After a brief tour of the win­ery, the cou­ple’s guide led them to the sur­prise pro­posal site

An event plan­ner dec­o­rated the vine­yard with can­dles, bou­quets of roses and framed pho­tos of the cou­ple
