Head Table and center piece inspirations
My name is Marianna and my FI name is Darren, we met 4 years ago at a lounge in Toronto, Ont. It was after work and I was grumpy from doing so many interviews that week, and really wasn't looking for anything. I was sitting at a bar with a friend from work and he came in and sat right bedside me, smiled and introduced himself. I guess you can say the rest is history. We had been dating for 3 1/2 years and a move to Vancouver, BC where we live now. I am a freelance makeup artist/ cosmetics sales and he owns his own bussiness.
When we went back East for Christmas I thought it was going to happen there. I don't know why I just did, but I should of known better then him mixing christmas with an engagement. So he didn't. The month of January past and I told myself I'm not going to ask about it or wondering about it anymore, darren likes to do things on his own. So on Feb 4th 2010 we woke up to an extremely beautiful and warm sunny day. I remember waking up feeling today feels different but had no idea why. We decided to go on a hike at one of my fav spots outside of Vancouver. At the end of the hike there is a huge rock that over looks a cove and a little of Vancouver. Just an amazing view of the mountains! It was quite busy on the hike since it was such a beautiful day in the winter. Once we got to the top he wanted to check out the other side of the rock because quote " he has never been there before" Which was a lie we have! lol! So I decided follow (It was a bit quieter on the other side) That's were he did it. He starts of by saying ," I know you have been patient....." and the rest if history! We had family coming in for the Olympics a week later and had to keep it a secret for a whole week until they arrived! It was the best month of 2010 by far.
