Chelsea and Randall
How We Met
I was working as a server and many of my coworkers were friends with him from high school. He would come in for dinner and we’d always ask about each other.
It took us a few months to finally meet, when one particular coworker/friend had a house party. Once we began talking, we felt a connection and attraction to each other right away. We officially started dating two weeks later!
How He Asked
Christmas is our favourite season, the most special time of year. There was a charity house built in Victoria Park for people to have pictures taken with Santa – all proceeds were donated towards providing gifts to children in need. He contacted the owner of the charity house and scheduled a “private visit” for us, which he planned ahead of time with my sister (who was living in B.C. and coming home for the holidays with her boyfriend).
We went for a walk through the park, stopping at the charity house to get group and couple photos taken. At the end, Santa handed me a gift with my name on it (dropped off by Randall during the day)… I opened it to find a beautiful collage of photos of us. It said “Will You Marry Me?”
And I looked up to find him right in front of me down on one knee, holding a gorgeous ring!
Of course, I said yes!!
