Tell us how you first met? Who, what, when, where, why? Give us details.
August 2008, A mutual friend invited me to Jason's house for a bonfire where she introduced us. From that point, we started talking and he asked me to go on a date.
When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did?
I'm not exactly sure when I knew he was the one. There isn't anything specific that he did.......we have gone through some pretty rough times throughout this relationship but have always managed to work through it. I feel like its made us stronger which definitely made me feel he must be the one!
Tell us about the proposal. Did you see it coming? How long was it in the planning? How did you feel? Nervous, excited, freaking out?
We had been together for about 4 yrs and I started dropping some hints to him that I was ready to take the next step, I honestly didn't think he would ever ask lol. But about 1.5yrs later which was Dec 25, 2013......he made breakfast....I came downstairs and started eating, when I picked up a piece of fruit there was a ring hiding underneath, he then walked up to me and got down on one knee. I was completely shocked and super happy.
Tell us the one thing you love most about each other.
I love that we're opposites, so I think because of that we balance each other out.
Besides getting married, what's the one thing you are looking forward to on your wedding day?
Spending time with our family. Jason's side is all from Ontario and Quebec, my side is from Manitoba......we don't get to see everyone that often.
What inspired your décor or theme?
I like the color purple and I went with big feathers for centerpieces which remind me of the 20's. I like that old Hollywood vintage glam kinda feel.
What's one thing you wish you would have known earlier in regards to planning?
How much time and detail goes into planning a wedding.
