Rebecca and Frank
How We Met
Frank and I were both working at Walt Disney World in Orlando. We were completing a student internship and we just happened to work at the same place. On my first day on the job, he said I caught his eye. He walked over to me and immediately started teaching me the ropes. We admired each other from afar for several months as neither of us had the guts to ask each other out, but towards the end of our program, we started speaking more and more.
I’m from Canada, he is from the US. When I had to return to Canada, we spoke every day. One day he just decided to drive up to Canada to surprise me. We hadn’t seen each other for several months, but when he showed up I knew he was the guy for me. We did the distance for almost three years before we got engaged.
How He Asked
He had been planning the proposal for a while. He bought the ring months ago and waited for the perfect moment. We were at my cottage (our favourite place on earth) and as we were returning from a small walk with the dog, when we got within eyeshot of the water, he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. I was so caught off guard, I didn’t say anything for several minutes.
But when I returned back from the clouds, I teared up and said Yes! After several moments of examining the ring, I noticed he put two hidden Mickey Mouse ears in the setting of the ring.
He custom made it because our love story started with Disney and he wanted to include it in our forever. My head is still spinning.
