Natalie and Graham
How We Met
We met at a downtown Vancouver night club. We were both there for a mutual friends birthday party. I saw Graham and knew I had to meet him. I asked the mutual friend what kind of guy Graham was and the mutual friend told me that Graham was the best guy around. Then other people from the party added in to say what a great guy Graham was. With this approval I approached Graham with a cheesy line and he laughed. We have been together ever since.
How He Asked
On November 26, 2014 Graham picked me up from our home on a rainy Vancouver night. We had planned to have a date night at Queen Elizabeth Park’s Seasons in the Park. When we arrived at the park Graham asked me if I wanted to go for a walk in the rain because we were early for our reservation. Walking together under one umbrella as we passed the Queen E fountain I realized something was up. We walked out to a lookout that overlooks all of downtown Vancouver and Graham faked going down onto one knee. We both started laughing because the rain was so heavy that he would be soaked if he had actually gotten down on one knee. Graham started into the speech he had written and been memorizing for weeks. It detailed our lives these past few years together and how we were building our lives into what we had always wanted. We laughed and cried and then he pulled out the ring and asked me to marry him. I, of course, said YES!
