About the couple

Bride: Vera Streltsova

Groom: Dylan Watson

How they met: “We met while working at a restaurant in Coquitlam 10 years ago,” explains Vera. “I was finishing high school while Dylan was working on his undergraduate degree in business. After we both stopped working at the restaurant we kept in touch as we had a lot in common and shared a passion for finance. After I graduated from university, Dylan and I both ended up in banking, working at the same office. Over a year of working together we became best friends, started dating, and fell in love.”

Engagement story: ‚ÄúDylan and I had plans to go for dinner downtown. We arrived a little early for our reservation and decided to go for a walk while we waited for our table,” Vera recalls. ” As we were passing by Canada Place, Dylan suggested that we go up to one of the terraces and have a seat on the bench and enjoy the view of the water. After telling me how much he loved me he got down on one knee and proposed. To celebrate we had an amazing dinner and stayed the night at the Pan Pacific Canada Place. Our room was on the 20th floor and had an amazing water view. When we got to the room, it was covered in rose petals. A huge bouquet of flowers and champagne were waiting for me. It was the most romantic day of my life. On our wedding night we stayed in exactly the same room as we did on our engagement day.”
