Call me a dork, but I totally got goose bumps when I read this adorable couple’s engagement story. I don’t want to ruin it for any of you, so I’ll just tell you that it involves a plane ride and a surprise meeting half way around the world. And when they returned to Canada, they met up with the fabulous With Love Heather for their oh-so-cute e-session. See it all right here.
From the Bride-to-Be . . . This past summer my family had planned a trip to the Olympics in London, England. The trip was 2 weeks long and we were so excited to be there at all of the events as well as spending time with our family. Every night before bed I would update Peter at home about our day, Skyping him, and wishing he was there to share all of the incredible sites and events that London and the Olympics bring. The night of the 1st of August ended with a message sent to Peter about our Water Polo event, and how he should just jump on the next flight out and come! Little did I know…he was already on a flight. The next day, August 2nd 2012, was one that continues to give me goosebumps. My family woke up, went for breakfast, and got on the tube to go to our Olympic event. After a few hours of China vs. China in the Table Tennis finals (China won…go figure.) my family took a stroll through Hype Park in London before our dinner reservations. My sister and dad had to use the restroom, so my mom and I walked down a path towards the water. She then said “Let me have your camera and I’ll take a photo of you over there by the water” So I did…
I took 5 steps down the little dirt path overlooking the Serpentine lake to find my very well dressed boyfriend sitting on a bench with a rose. Everything went numb. He walked towards me with that brilliant smile that I love so much and hugged me tightly. We sat on the bench while he slowly read me all of the things he loves about me that he had jotted down on a restaurant menu. We both couldn’t stop smiling. Then, at 6:04pm, halfway around the world, Peter got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.
