On the birthday of my late father Rob Engel, 29th of January, Dirk Verest and I, Lonneke Engel, would like to announce our marriage to the World! I am a lucky woman and have never felt more excited for our future together!
Dirk and I are extremely happy with our intimate & spiritual wedding, in our beautiful loft in New York City, in November 2013. Surrounded by close friends, we were married by Brooke, an ordained minister, who is a close friend, and my best friend Johan’s wife.
Married life feels good! You have someone in your life you love, who loves you back. You have someone in your life to lean on, and together you are a team. Dirk and I are a team. For better and for worse, for real. And that’s something I have longed for, for years.
We will have a second outdoor ceremony in New York in the Spring, and a garden party in the Netherlands to celebrate somewhere at the end of the Summer, so more of our friends and family can join us! I am busy planning and making sure our guests feel as loved as we feel.
The coming weeks I will share details of my wedding. Like my one-of-a-kind wedding dress, our wedding cake, the story of our rings…
Dirk, you are my true love, and I. LOVE.YOU. ALWAYS! <3
