Over 5 years ago, I met my future husband at my college roommate’s Canada Day party. It wasn’t until a few months later, that we had our first date. I lived 5 hours away from him, so it was a lot of phone calls and text messages leading up to this moment. But the second we saw each other I knew this was it. From there we dated long distance from September until April (It was a true whirlwind romance). I made the big move to be with him after only 6 months. Most people thought I was crazy to give up my life and move across the province, but I knew this was the right choice for me. 2 years later, we were blessed with a beautiful baby girl. Our lives had forever changed once again. We bought a house and moved from our small apartment. We were happy, content, and I didn’t expect a proposal. I mean, I had everything I needed without the ring, why bother putting the pressure on ourselves. Plus he is terrible at surprises and I told him he would never be able to throw me off guard.

A few short months later, on Father’s Day, he got down on one knee and shocked my whole family (myself included). It was the most perfect moment. From there, we planned our dream day (I know I said I didn’t need a proposal, but what girl doesn’t dream about her wedding day). It was a rustic/romantic day filled with so much love, and surrounded by only our closest friends and family. Hurricane like weather decided to show its ugly face and turned our plans completely upside down, but it was still beyond beautiful and a day we will never forget.
