The Proposal – Engagement Day Photos!

As some of you already know, Chris’ big plans to propose on a hot air balloon were foiled by unfavourable winds.  But that didn’t stop him from putting together a spur-of-the-moment Christopher Surprise (he’s known for his lovable sneakiness).

After deciding to go for an impromptu afternoon of horseback riding, Chris snuck the ring into his pocket and hoped for the right moment to present itself while we were out.

Jaime’s dad always told her that someday she’d meet her knight in shining armour, but not to be too worried if his armour wasn’t actually shiny, or if the horse wasn’t white and pooped a little (true story).  So what could have been more apropos than a proposal immediately following an hour trail ride behind Chris’ rather…ahem flatulent…brown Belgian?

After leaving The Ranch in Oakville, Jaime still had no idea what was to come.  Even though Chris swears he must have looked panicked as one of the workers called her his “wife?…fiancee?…girlfriend?”  Anyway, in typical spontaneous Chris fashion, he had a suggestion once we hit the road.  “Why don’t we go up to Rattlesnake Point?  We always drive by it and say we should go up so I can see it for the first time, and today’s as good a day as any!”

Little did Jaime know that that day’s mini-adventure would be the start of a much, much bigger one.
