How We Met

My name is Liz and my fiancé’s name is Gabe. We meet in college and have been having a long-distance relationship for the past 4 years. Gabe is from and currently lives in Montreal, and with COVID-19 affecting so many relationships, we wanted to our story.

How They Asked

The last time we saw each other was in February and we didn’t know the border would shut down at this time. While the border is still “shut down” Canadians can still fly into the states and then quarantine when they get home. I didn’t know this was possible, but for the past few months Gabe, my friends, and family were planning this surprise. I showed up to what I thought was a best friend photoshoot on Aug 23. Our photographer @linabondaca asked for single shots and told me to go first.

She wanted pictures of us doing a hair flip. When I turned around, Gabe was there on his knee along with everyone involved in the surprise. It was a beautiful and breathtaking moment that I will always remember. During this difficult time, We wanted to share our story because it is light and heartwarming. If you would like to share it on your platform please feel free we would be honored. Our friend is putting together a video so we don’t have the official one to share just yet. Thank you for taking the time to read our story!
