Earlier this year, Lucas reached out to us to help him plan and execute the perfect proposal for his girlfriend (spoiler alert: now fiancé!!!), Amanda. These two people are beyond beautiful and perfect for each other. We are so honored to have been apart of this special proposal for them! Check it out!
How Their Love Story Began as Told by Lucas
“We started dating about a year and a half ago, and I think we both knew quickly into our relationship that we had something special. I am a neurosurgery resident (Amanda likes to practically call me Dr. McDreamy) and she is a practicing dentist, and we met on Tinder, although it almost wasn’t to be. I hadn’t used the application very much after being signed up by some friends, but my one rule was I never “swiped right” on people that only had photos. I liked at least something clever or intriguing in the statement to really peak my interest. However, she is a dentist and had a photo with a surgical mask on. I am also in the medical/surgical realm and forever reason I deemed that enough to investigate further. I’m glad I swiped right.”
How He Asked The Girl of His Dreams
Lucas hired Stephanie on to execute a full proposal in 9 days. He was planning a ski trip to Whistler with his girlfriend Amanda and he wanted to propose but needed the assistance to fully execute it. Lucas had mentioned that one of his favourite dates involved going for dinner and exploring an art exhibit. It was their first time in Whistler so a trip to Lil Wat Cultural Center in Squamish was a must.
It was January 24th, 2017 and after a morning of exploring the city, they arrive at the cultural center. Lucas suggests going in but he desperately needs a coffee before they start. While walking downstairs to the cafe, they hear music coming from the Istken Hall and peek behind the black curtain. Lucas leads Amanda to a rose petal circle with a vinyl sticker quote: OUR FOREVER STARTS NOW with their proposal date. He whispers those four little words and Amanda, in complete shock, says yes! Following the proposal, Christine Pienaar takes the couple out for a mini engagement session while Stephanie flips the room to an elegant table for two with Future Hubby/Future Wifey champagne flutes and bottle of Veuve Cliquot champagne. On her place setting is a calligraphy love letter of everything Lucas shared when on one knee. That forever keepsake!
