Malorie and Logan

How We Met

Logan and I met in a little country bar in Southern Alberta. We danced once, and shared tidbits about ourselves, but after the night was over we both continued with our regular routine.

In the days to follow, I knew that God brought Logan into my life for some reason, but I wasn’t sure what it was at the time.

We began spending a lot of time together, and I soon realized that he was very special. I started to feel at ease because I knew I had found the man of my dreams, and I somehow knew we would spend the rest of our lives together.

Eventually Logan worked up the courage to ask me to be his girlfriend, and like the saying goes…. the rest is history.

How He Asked

Logan and I love the mountains. Both of us are from small towns in Southern Alberta, and we head to the mountains whenever we get the chance.

I always dreamed of being proposed to in the mountains, with the snow falling around us, and no wind – (and in Southern Alberta, that is a rare occasion).

…… And a snowy, calm, mountain proposal is exactly what I got.

On a chilly Saturday morning we headed to Waterton to do a bit of snowshoeing. When we got there we strapped on our snowshoes and began the trek to Cameron Lake. Eventually we arrived at the lake and there was no one around but us. The giant snowflakes were gently falling and the mountains were completely snow covered. We were basically in a human sized snow globe.

I didn’t clue in to what Logan’s plan was until he was on one knee in his snowshoes (which was very impressive), and asking me if I would marry him.

Whoa.

I cried, and I cried, and I cried some more, and then obviously I said YES. It felt like time stopped for about 10 minutes as we hugged, and took in that special moment in our own winter wonderland.

We snowshoed back to the camp kitchen where my parents were waiting with coffee and Bailey’s and a big hug. And of course more tears.

Now I know why God brought us together that night and I am so incredibly thankful that he did. We were meant to adventure together forever!
