When’s the big day?
After a couple of choices, we finally settled on October 3, 2014
How did you meet?
We found each other on Match.com, but actually met for the first time for a glass of wine at a small pub near our homes…She picked the place, but go lost on the way. He gave great directions, and had her laughing before they even saw each other for the first time. As soon as she saw those gorgeous “husky eyes” look her way, she knew it was going to be a great first date. She was right. It lasted over 4 hours but felt like it flew by. Easiest date ever for both of us! He texted to ask her out again before she even got home. That was 2.5 years ago. She still has every text he’s ever sent.
How did he/she propose?
We went away for a weekend in the Okanagan. We did a wine tour of the Grey Monk winery, had a beautiful lunch on the patio, and while soaking in the scenery, he proposed.
Favorite thing about each other?
he says: “Her heart”
she says: “I have many favorite things about him. He is absolutely genuine. He works very hard at being a good man, and that means so much more than being a great guy… He’s smart, warm, thoughtful, and funny. He makes me think and makes me laugh every single day. Life with him will never be boring! He’s a “handful”, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Your idea of a perfect date?
he says: “Catching 5lb rainbow trout together and celebrating with a nice meal —- I mean, going to the opera.”
she says: “Anything we do outdoors on the lake, followed by a glass of wine and a great meal and conversation. We have a great “date” nearly every day!”
Kisses, hugs or snuggles?
he says: “Snuggles”
she says: “Snuggles… and kisses”
What’s your favorite thing to do together?
Laugh and cuddle… actually anything together. – At least that’s what she said.
He Said “Our favorite thing likely shouldn’t be typed —- but the hint is in our smile.” We both like to make our young adult kids squirm when we show too much affection…
Favorite Starbucks drink?
he says: “Double Espresso”
she says: “Hazelnut steamed milk… Mmmmm….”
Your favorite hangout?
he says: “Near each other.”
she says: “Anywhere as long as we’re together.”
One place in the world you must go see?
he says: “ Masi Mara Game Reserve – Africa”
she says: “Machu Pichu – Peru”
What are you looking forward to the most on your wedding day?
he says: “Setting in motion the rest of our lives together”
she says: “Seeing the look on his face… knowing I’ll be his wife at the end of the day, and his partner for the rest of our lives…I’m marrying the love of my life, and my best friend.”
