Recently Engaged: Erinn & Scott

This is the love story about a boy from Calgary and a girl from Halifax and how they met, fell in love and are now on the journey of the rest of their lives together.

Scott and I met in one of the most popular places in Halifax, Pizza Corner! I am happy to say that it wasn't a drunken episode but it did end up with us exchanging numbers and talking everyday from them on. Scott and I talked about marriage and a family from the beginning of our relationship, we have so much in common when it comes to our futures. So our proposal was't a huge shock but it was super sweet to say the least.

I love the ocean, the salt air, and growing up in Halifax. Scott use to come here on family vacations because his parents grew up in Dartmouth before moving to Calgary. Throughout our relationship we have spent a lot of time at the waterfront. We took long walks, had big talks and some of our most special moments as a couple there. One night after Scott got off work he asked if I would like to go for a walk down the waterfront. I wasn't particularly in the mood but went anyways. It was typical Halifax night, foggy, enough to make my hair nice and frizzy! So we walked along the boardwalk reminiscing about the days of our childhood and we came across the ship playground. And we started to walk towards it, discussing our memories of playing there. After we reached the top of the ship, we stood looking out, alone on the playground and the waterfront. Scott turned towards me and went down on one knee. At first I thought he was joking but then he expressed his love for me and asked me to marry him and without a doubt I said yes!

We are having are wedding here in Halifax in 2013 and can't wait for the big day!
