How We Met
My fiancé and I met in Grade 6 when we both started French immersion in elementary school. We were friends all the way through high school but went off to different universities. Kurt says he had a crush on me in Grade 6 but he never did anything about it. I had a crush on him in Grade 12 but he had a girlfriend at the time. Fast forward to 5 years after high school, we reconnected when I invited him to my birthday party. Now 4 years later we are engaged!
how they asked
Kurt planned a trip to the Okanagan, where his family has a place near Kalamalka Lake. On our way up we went on a hike to our favorite viewpoint. At the viewpoint, Kurt told me to face the water so he could take some photos. After he took some photos he told me to turn around and when I did he was down on one knee with the most beautiful ring I’ve ever seen. He had borrowed our friend’s go pro so we had photos that captured the whole proposal.
In his backpack, he had packed champagne from one of our favorite wineries in the Okanagan and two champagne glasses that my sister and her husband had gifted their guests (and us) with at their wedding. After the proposal, he had one more surprise which was that we were going to be staying at the Sparkling Hills Resort for the weekend.
