How We Met

We met in a cozy pub in northern Alberta. And after spending 5 amazing years together it was time to pop the question.

how they asked

After months of planning and meeting with restaurant managers, suit tailors, friends, the photographer and even a gold smith(to have the ring custom made) I was ready to pull of the most incredible proposal.

It started with an out of town friend surprising her at her door step with the first of 4 cards including some sort of sweet combination of love words and also instructions on where to go and what to do.

She had breakfast with her best friends, then they all went head to toe outfit shopping for her, then off to a beauty bar to have all the finer details polished up and finally she was driven to the top of the highest mountain in Victoria BC where I had the next most epic surprise waiting.

Along a hill top path were 10 canvasses set up with quotes and sayings pertaining to our relationship. The first stop on the path she met the photographer and a male vocalist who sang “All of Me” acapela. Then from here she walked through a group of trees where I had strung over 300 photos from the entirety of our loving bond. After Cresting a hill she then found a second performer who sang “Four Leaf Clover” accompanied by guitar. Half way through this song I surprised her from behind while singing the lyrics. We shared a dance. Next a placed her on top of a boulder where I professed my love and promises for our future before getting down on one knee to ask the love of my life to share forever with me.

Following all of this we now had the photographer take our engagement photos as she was dressed in a long, elegant maroon dress and I had on my custom tailored dark blue suit. But I still had another surprise.

I told her I had to blindfold her because I had set something up very romantic at an exclusive restaurant and I didn’t want her to see where we were going. In all actuality I had reserved a room at a restaurant where 40 of our friends and family were waiting to surprise her and celebrate our recent engagement. The look on her face when I removed the blindfold and everyone yelled “SURPRISE” will be something I will never forget about that day.
