How We Met

Cory and I met in March 2012 in downtown Vancouver. It started off as a casual meet-and-greet type of set up where my co-worker, his close friend, decided that we should meet. I was a bit hesitant about it, so we went out in a group.  Cory and I ended up talking all night, enjoying a few drinks, some laughs and dancing with eachother.

We seemed to really hit it off, so at the end of the night we exchanged numbers. As I walked away he called me and left me a voicemail. When I checked it later when I got home, he told me how great it was to meet me and he wanted to take me out on a date. And so it began!

How He Asked

Cory and I had a weekend getaway trip planned to Quebec City, where neither of us had been. We spent the day exploring their iconic and seasonal ice hotel, followed by a delicious and romantic meal at the Sheraton hotel nearby. After dinner we returned to the Ice Hotel where we explored the area, drank a cocktail out of an ice glass, and soaked in a hot tub under the stars, surrounded by snow covered trees. After much relaxation we decided to go back to our ice room to enjoy a romantic night by our fireplace. It was there that Cory got on one knee, told me the most amazingly romantic and kind things, and asked me to marry him. I was surprised and elated and of course said YES!…after some laughing and tears! The proposal was better than I ever could have imagined and the setting was so unique. It was quite simply the best day of my life!
