Our Story
How did we meet?

"We met in 2009-10 school year at Ryerson University. With my high school friend, we decided to join the Ryerson Dragon Boat Club in our final year of university (because we should do an extra-curricular activity before graduating). During practices, Loc kept saying hi to me. My friend said she never said hi to her. I thought he was creepy at first until we went on some group dates. Then...I thought he was cool." - Lisa

What is the proposal story?

We went to Washington, D.C in April 2015 to witness the beautiful Cherry Blossoms and to celebrate my 27th birthday. On my birthday, Loc had hired a photographer to meet us there. We arrived at the meet up time of 11:30AM. Loc called the photographer and she wasn't able to arrive until 1PM because she didn't realize that there was going to be a lot of traffic. 1PM rolls around...photographer still not there. 1:10, 1:15 and finally 1:30PM...we waited by the Washington Monument. She still hasn't come. We decided to cancel the photographer and walked around downtown Washington. So unprofessional right? Anyway, I secretly knew something odd was up when Loc hired a photographer.

At 7PM, I started to complain that my feet were hurting because it has been a long day of walking. Loc said, "Okay, let's go over to that side where the bridge is. There are some double Cherry Blossom trees that I want to see." I slowly walked over with my hurting feet. We get to the double Cherry Blossom trees and started to take some selfies. All of a sudden, Loc gets down on one knee and proposes! My feet didn't hurt so much anymore.

What our future will entail....

Many people are aware that we will be moving out of Toronto at the end of the year. With Loc's career with the Canadian Forces, we knew we would be moving around Canada and potentially overseas after the wedding. We will find out his first posting a week before the wedding. Stay tuned!
