After MUCH deliberation, we have chosen a winner for our Ultimate Engagement Giveaway. When I thought about running a contest based on reading engagement stories, my thought was: How fun will it be to read all these über romantic stories about how two people decided to spend the rest of their lives together! What I didn’t think was: How hard it will be to pick just ONE of those stories to win our prize!
We received quite a selection of stories, with engagements that took place all over the world, every one was unique, thoughtful and so romantic. In the end, only one could win, and after hours of debating, back and forth, a glass of wine (or two) we finally made our choice.
MEET OUR WINNERS:
Megan & Curtis
This is their story:
On December 16th 2012 my friend planed a girls night in Canmore at the Grand
Rockies Resort. I never pass on a girls night out so it goes without saying…I would
be there! The last two months of our lives had been hectic to say the least, in two
months Curtis and I had moved to a new town, started a new job and bought a
house. My head was scrambled and I was so excited for the girls night I completely
forgot it was the day of our two year anniversary.
In my excitement I rushed to Canmore and beat my friend to the hotel so she told me
to meet her in the room. As I opened the door the room was filled with lit candles and
romantic music was whispering in the background. It took me a few moments to
realize this had nothing to do with a girls night…I had forgotten about our
anniversary! I took a few more steps into the room and on the counter was a bottle of
wine and a note saying:
Did you forget what day it is?
We are going out for a nice dinner so pour your self a glass of wine, get
dressed and come and have a drink with me down stairs at the bar.
I LOVE YOU
P.S. Take your time, our reservation is for after 8″
I couldn’t believe I was the one that forgot, isn’t it supposed to be the other way
around? I suddenly felt frantic, excited and embarrassed all at the same time. I dug
through my bag of clothes trying to decide what to wear, thankfully because I was
prepared for a girls night I put together something half decent. In my hot and
bothered mess I threw my clothes on and ran down to the bar where Curtis was
waiting for me. After a much needed glass of wine a humongous (like so big it could
have been a boat) limo pulled up to the door…it was our ride! We took a short but
sweet scenic ride around Canmore and were dropped off at one of our favorite
restaurants, The Trough. Curtis had reserved the table we sat at on our very first date two years ago.
We took our time enjoying our meal and a nice bottle of wine. We
don’t usually order desert but on this particular night we both decided it was a good
The waiter handed me a menu, Inside it had scrambled symbols and text that I
couldn’t read so Curtis handed me his. I read the menu a few time’s before I processed
the words in my mind:
I adore you
I always will
Will you marry me?
When I looked up Curtis was on one knee with a ring in his hand, I was so flustered
I didn’t hear a word he said…I just said YES!!
