I’m not sure how common it is to meet your future husband through one of your high school teachers.. but that’s what happened to Heather. Her teacher’s brother-in-law happened to be Dave. She teased Heather that she should date Dave, but the timing just wasn’t right yet. Fast forward a few years though and her teacher was right, they began dating. Now their engagement story is one of the sweetest I’ve heard..
Dave lives on the island and he planned the sweetest proposal while Heather was visiting from Abbotsford. He took her out to the top of Mount Douglas in Victoria. While walking on the mountain, Heather noticed that there was a tent with candles set up around it. A little unusual of a sighting for December. Dave suggested they check it out, and Heather was a little hesitant to walk over to a random tent with candles set up ;) Nevertheless, he went over and convinced her to step inside and look. She was absolutely blown away to discover candles, a bouquet of roses, rose petals on the floor, and fun photos of them taped all over the tent. He also gave her a book he made with all their emails and messages while dating, and read that together. After, he got down pretending to tie his shoe, but pulled out a box instead and said: “that was chapter one, and for chapter two I want to ask you to be my wife.” To absolutely top it off, he had also arranged for her family to meet them there afterward to congratulate them. How thoughtful is he? I’m looking forward to their wedding this August!
