Chelsey and Jeff

How We Met

We met at Big Valley Jamboree in Camrose, Alberta. I was talking to my friend and we were laughing. I happened to catch eyes with Jeff and the next thing I know he grabs me to dance with him.

He two stepped with me and spun me around like no one ever has, it was so much fun. We didn’t start seeing each other until about 8 months after that.

How He Asked

We went to Quebec with a couple friends to check out Mont Tremblant for some snowboarding, Montreal and Quebec city. My fiancé and I had been dating at the time for five years and one of our favourite things to do together has always been snowboarding.

So while we were snowboarding on Mont Tremblant,  we had gotten separated from our two friends during the day and just happen to be going down one of the runs called Desserres run. We had stopped in the middle of the run just to take a break.

It was a really foggy day, all you could see was Fog and barely anything in front of us. It happen to be just us two in that area and so Jeff comes up to me and starts taking off his snowboard, his mits and his tuque.. he stood in front of me and asked me to stand up. Me, still being on my snowboard with all my gear on, I stand up and asked him what’s going on?

The next thing I know he’s telling me how much he loves me and pulls a ring out of his ski pants pocket, down on one knee he goes in the middle of the mountain and asked me to marry him.

In that moment, that whole time, there was nobody that came skiing or snowboarding down that run.. it was just him and I alone surrounded by fog. After I said yes and we had our moment together,  we got ready to put his gear back on and get going down the mountain so we could celebrate.

It wasn’t until we were ready to go that some people finally came skiing down.  It was the perfect time to do it, we just happened to be alone for those 5-10 minutes and it felt like it was just him and I there.. It couldn’t have went more perfect.
