Emma, four-year four-legged Chocolate Lab
We flew over the rockies somewhere in Nordegg, Alberta via a helicopter. Descended in the middle of nowhere, had a 'fancy' picnic; Andrew was nervous on his knees, I anticipated it (I got my nails done pretty before that) but still quite a shock. I said, "YES," (Otherwise, neither of us remembered anything else that were exchanged during that moment. If you remember word per word what was said during your moment of engagement, that is so staged, shame on you!) and drank all the champagne we could before flying back to civilization.
HOW WE CELEBRATED
Andrew asked me if I wanted to go to a fancy dinner but I am cheap and easy so I opted for home (Emma was left alone and I wanted to share with her the good news about her parents not living in sin anymore, lol), PJs, a movie and KFC (and another champagne).
KD's DREAM ENGAGEMENT
My dream engagement really is in the midst of me doing laundry, with my hair up and in sweats but a heli ride in Lululemons would do.

DATING STATUS BEFORE OFFICIAL WEDDING
3 years and 3 months
PRE-WEDDING SIDE STORY
I really didn't want a wedding. I wanted to elope in the mountains with a commissioner and a photographer and meet our families/friends for dinner after to celebrate. Andrew wanted a small wedding (little did he know 'small' doesn't equal to little expense and work). Andrew won and we are having an intimate wedding.
