the story of vivian + sam

Vivian and I met through volunteering in Scouts in 2009. We did not have much interactions initially until a volunteering trip we went on together to China in May 2012. We have been together since then!

 the proposal

“I didn’t want to wait another month before proposing so I decided to go ahead with my plans”…

It was a less than perfect day on Oct 21st. Typical Vancouver weather; gloomy, raining, just all around miserable. I had already planned to propose on that day and Vivian was going out of town for a work trip and then we would be going to Spain for two weeks. I didn’t want to wait another month before proposing so I decided to go ahead with my plans.

We went up to Mount Seymour; the intention was to take either the Dog Mountain or Pump Peak trails. However, a recent flurry of snow covered all of those trails so we were only left with the ski hill, which had a marked trail probably due to service vehicles going up the mountain to do service on the ski lifts. We ended up walking all the way to the top despite the snow and wind. I ended up proposing on the way down once I found a flatter area and the weather became more forgiving. Vivian was quite surprised despite the impromptu hike in such poor weather.

She said “yes” and we quickly came back down the mountain in our half soaked clothes and boots.

“I promise to continue to make you laugh with my daily dosage of bad jokes and plans, I promise to give you hugs even when you don’t want to admit that you want one. As your husband and partner, I promise to always be there for you”

“I could never really pinpoint of when I fell in love with you because it has always felt so neutral, but everyday I am reminded by your patience, your unconditional love and care of how lucky I am to be with you”
