An Elegant, New Year’s Eve Wedding in Vancouver, British Columbia

Bride and Groom

With the help of the internet, Fraser and Dana not only met, but later became engaged under unique circumstances! “Fraser and his twin brother were new customers at my family-owned Tim Hortons,” Dana explains. “After a few failed attempts at getting my name, he emailed the customer comment email address asking me for my info, and signed off with his regular order. I instantly knew who it was, and we met up shortly after.”

When it was time to pop the question, Fraser thought up a creative proposal idea that Dana wouldn’t see coming. “He worked on a Pinterest storyboard piece displaying our relationship — from asking my parents for my hand in marriage, and ending it with asking me to marry him,” said Dana. “He uploaded it to Pinterest at the exact time that I always went on the site (right before bed), and waited for my reaction. It was Christmas Eve and I obviously got the best present ever!”

The two were married at the beautiful Rosewood Hotel Georgia in Vancouver on New Year’s Eve. They accented their stunning venue with brown, silver, and gold decor. Each table was decorated with a dramatic centrepiece comprised of branches adorned with pearls, crystals and candles.
