How We Met
Lachlan and I officially met for the first time when he handed in his resume to me when I was working at the Till ! It was truly fate because at the time I was only working one shift a week. Lucky for me, he managed to land the job and we became friends from there. We ended up being friends for 1.5 years before we started dating.
How They Asked
Lachlan planted a story months before the proposal for the perfect alibi. He told me that this chef, who is one of his favorites, was doing exclusive pop-up dinners throughout the latter half of the year and he was going to try and get a booking. These events were extremely exclusive, being randomly posted on an Instagram story and being sold out almost instantly. After multiple attempts of trying to get us a booking, Lachlan managed to finally get one, even sending me a screenshot of the booking confirmation screen. Little did I know that this whole thing was made up!
We ended up going to this beautiful location for what I thought would be a dinner and instead it turned into our proposal. He also organized for a professional photographer to capture the engagement, as well as for photos taken afterward which we will cherish forever. Funnily enough, due to unique circumstances, I ended up meeting the chef that Lachlan used for his story and got to tell him about it.
