McKenzie + Nicholas :: Modern Canadian Engagement
March 16, 2016
We just love the modern feel of McKenzie + Nicholas’ Engagement and Wedding photos, and are so excited to feature their story on She’s Intentional! McKenzie has shared the story of their proposal here, and we’ll be featuring their wedding at a later date as well. Read on ladies…
On May 20, 2014 I said yes to the question every girl dreams of. I was visiting Nicholas in his hometown, Calgary Canada, and he had taken me on a walk on a lovely spring day through a beautiful park in downtown Calgary when he asked me to be his wife. I knew immediately my answer was yes!
Nicholas and I had not grown up together, but knew each other several years prior to us beginning our relationship. The most important thing for me when he asked me to marry him was that I knew Nicholas was my best friend.
The fact I was just proposed to was the first of MANY incredible surprises of the evening. The two of us had a delicious dinner together that I did not know was planned. We then went back to find a much different car than we had arrived in. I excitedly drove us back to his house to share the great news.
I was EXTREMELY shocked to find that my Dad, Mom, and my little brother had made an 11 hour road trip to surprise me and celebrate with us. Very soon all of our close friends in Calgary were showing up to a surprise party that Nicholas and my father had planned when Nicholas asked my hand in marriage. The rest of the evening consisted of repeating the engagement in much detail to all our friends and family.
