- Wedding: September 2016
After 5 years together and 2 years 9 months LDR… We are engaged! We have been through so much together and are so in love, I am soooo happy to call him my fiancé! In the winter of 2011 he told me he was going to marry me someday, so I have been very excited for this moment for many years.
On Friday night he picked me up from the airport, I am done my second last semester (Only 4 more months LDR to go!!!). We drove to our favourite place in the world, Fernie BC, in the morning. This town is so special to the both of us, and I was kind of expecting a proposal to happen there. We skied in the morning and we’re having a really good day, even though early season conditions made for some tired legs. He suggested we do one more run then head in for some lunch. We skied into a really nice treed area (Cedar bowl for anyone that has skied Fernie), and took our skis off and sat down in the snow for a break. We were just chatting and listening to the snow fall, we couldn’t hear any other sound. It was so peaceful. I stood up to put my skis on, and because it was pretty steep I asked him to hold my ski. So he was on one knee adjusting my ski, and he looks up at me and asks me to marry him!!! I said “like for real??!” He didn’t stay on one knee for long because I grabbed him into a huge hug and started crying, and we fell onto the slope. After a few minutes of joyful emotions.. He pulled out the most beautiful ring I have ever seen! I have never been so happy in all my life. We skied down (slowly stopping to kiss every few minutes) and went to the bar to celebrate! We also were staying the night at our favourite bed and breakfast and got to have some champagne in the hot tub later that evening. It was the most beautiful and perfect day.
Sorry for for the long post, but I have been on weddingbee for 2 years and have been so excited to post my proposal story when it finally happened!
