Priyanka and Darren
How We Met
He’s a year older than me. We went to the same elementary school and high school and lived 2 blocks away from each other the whole time. We had mutual friends but never spoke to each other or really crossed paths. 5 years after I graduated high school I was DD for my bestfriend at a bar (which is very rare me not drinking at that point) he happened to be there with a friend who came over to my gf while we were at the bar and started chatting. Darren also came over and we started talking and that was that. Our first date was at a Canucks game a week later.
How He Asked
I LOVE Christmas and everything about it. Every year we go up to GRouse Mountain because they do a Peak of Christmas celebration. They decorate and set up beautiful lights and light mazes and a skating rink and sleigh ride. I absolutely love the light tunnel that leads down to their light maze. I had my thoughts that he would propose there so when we started to walk thru the tunnel my stomach was in knots I was so excited I didn’t even stop to take a picture. But he didn’t propose. Even after the light maze when we walked back up thru the tunnel, nothing. So I assumed he would propose a few days later on our trip to New York. We went in the chalet for some hot chocolate and then came back out for a sleigh ride. We were going against a the wind and being pelted with snow so I was ready to leave after but darren reminded me I wanted a picture in the tunnel so we started to walk down and AGAIN no proposal I had officially told myself now that it would not happen tonight so when we started walking back up thru the tunnel I was walking in front of him ready to go when he stopped me and turned me around and said “I love you and you know I’m going to take care of your for the rest of our life right?” That when I knew it was going to happen but unfortunately I completely blacked out form excitement and emotions I only remember him on his knee and none of the things he said not even “will you marry me” or him putting the ring on my finger! I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect and beautiful setting with the lights and snow! It was amazing
