The Lavish Picnic
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.
