THE STORY OF kirsten + mike

“We were eyeing each on the dance floor for hours…”

We met in April 2013 the old fashioned way... at a bar. The Metropolitan in Vancouver to be exact. Kirsten was there for her friend Davin's birthday and Mike was there with friends after attending a Whitecaps game. We were eyeing each on the dance floor for hours until Mike finally got the courage to approach Kirsten. We danced and laughed the night away. The rest, as they say, is history.

THE PROPOSAL STORY

“When Kirsten opened the cupcake box she was surprised to see there wasn't a cupcake inside…”

We got engaged on a lazy Friday night in November 2017 sitting on the couch. Mike had just gotten the ring from a goldsmith and was itching to give it to Kirsten. Kirsten had just finished a shift and had brought home Vietnamese food for dinner. After eating take out Mike mentioned he stopped by the cupcake store to get cupcakes for dessert. When Kirsten opened the cupcake box she was surprised to see there wasn't a cupcake inside, but an engagement ring! The inevitable question followed with Mike asking "Ya like that one?", to which Kirsten responded "Yes!".
