Taylor and Daniel

how we met

We met working on a cruise ship in March 2016. I’m a singer and Daniel managed the jewelry boutique. Dan being from South Africa and I from Southern California, the only reason we met is surely fate. We dated for three months on the ship and when my contract ended we decided to stay together and try to line up our future ship contracts to be together. We’re very lucky to have been to over 50 countries together around the world and done five 6-month contracts TOGETHER. In between contracts we always have about 3 months where we have to do long distance, both in our respective home countries. The distance and time apart really made us grateful to have each other and made it evident that we need to be together for the rest of our lives!

how they asked

In March 2018, Daniel invited me to visit his homeland, South Africa for the first time to meet his family. During the time we were there he also had booked a three day Safari for us. On one of the evenings we went out in the car to watch the gorgeous African sunset in the middle of the wild. As the sun was setting Daniel got out of the car, I was sitting in the front passenger seat and he was sitting in the seat behind me, this is a big no-no while on safari so I was starting to freak out. But before I could express my concern for him risking life and limb, he got down on one knee and asked me to spend my life with him. Of course I said YES! and he rushed back in the car. Best day of my life and cannot wait to marry him in October 2020!
