Alex and Yuliya

Alex's Proposal in Victoria, Canada

How We Met

We met at our churches masquerade event where Alex offered to make me coffee. I didn’t think much about it then but it made me interested in who this nice guy was. Over time we grew as friends and started crushing on each other over the summer.

How They Asked

Before summer ended our friend group decided to take a trip together to Victoria, Canada, which was secretly planned by my now husband, Alex. The day we got there we toured the city and checked into our hotel, and then decided to enjoy the outdoor spa.

After we relaxed we made dinner plans and went up to our rooms to get ready. The girls told me they wanted to dress up and be fancy, which was just a trick to get me to look nice. After getting ready we went downstairs to meet the guys and as I was making my way outside, I noticed the girls were walking a ways behind me on our way there.

As I made my way down the path, I saw Alex surrounded by rose petals and candles. In that instant, I knew what was happening and shakily made my way towards him. He got down on one knee to ask me to marry him and I, of course, said yes! Canada will definitely be a memorable spot for us.
