      The proposal story

      We sledded up to the Olive Hut on top of Catamount Glacier for a two-night stay (if you research the hut you might think we are insane lol). Once we got up to the hut, Ryan got down on one knee and asked me to be his adventure partner for life! We then popped a bottle of champagne and cooked up a pot of dehydrated pasta. It was the perfect evening!

      How we met
       
      I was at Lake Louise waiting in line for the chair when I heard my name get called. I turned around and a guy I had seen before while working as a waitress at Earls was calling my name. We then ran into each other at the chalet during lunchtime, he and his friends joined us for lunch and some drinks. We then went for a couple of snowboards laps together and we have been together ever since.


      Did you know you would end up together or was it a happy surprise?
       
      We both think so. <3

      Favorite part of your relationship?
       
      Our thirst for adventure and our love of food.

      What do you look forward to for the rest of your life together?
       
      Retiring in a small mountain town with as many dogs as we can fit!

      Why did he or you choose the ring you did?
       
      He chose it because he knew I loved it from the first time I saw it and didn't stop sending him pictures and hints of it for 4 years.

      How did you hear about Lawlor Jewelry?
       
      A couple of my girlfriend's rings came from Lawlor Jewelry and they are exquisite. Also, I worked with Mike back in the day at West 49 and thought it would be cool to support his family business!

      Tell us your proposal story

      Kirk rented a small plane for us in Calgary. I thought we were heading to Stettler to have lunch with my Mom. Shortly after we took off, Kirk told me that the plane was running low on oil and we needed to make a quick stop in Sundre before continuing on our journey. As soon as he landed the plane, I saw a cute dog running towards us. I say to Kirk, “Look there’s a wiener dog here!” We climbed out of the plane and I quickly realized... “Wait, that’s our wiener dog!”. Henry (our dog) ran right up to the plane with my ring tied around his neck. Kirk got down on one knee as he untied the ring. It truly felt like a movie!

      How we met
       
      Kirk and I met through working at WestJet. He was a junior Pilot and I was a junior Flight Attendant. We hit it off as friends right away, we went for dinner at a pub in Kamloops that evening.

      Did you know you would end up together or was it a happy surprise?
       
      Kirk and I were friends for about a year and a half before we starting dating; he was always so kind and respectful so I had no idea that he had feelings for me. For me, it was a happy surprise. For Kirk on the other hand, he said that he knew almost immediately. One of the first pairings we worked together we had a 30 hour layover in YellowKnife. There's not a whole lot to do in the -40 YellowKnife winters, so our crew of four drank at the local brewery. Later that day I had the most embarrassing moment of my life. I dropped a bottle of red wine in Shoppers Drug Mart and it smashed everywhere! Kirk had a good laugh over it. After that, we got lost walking around the town and eventually ended up sharing a platter of chicken fingers at a restaurant. The next day Kirk told our Captain, “I’m going to marry that girl one day.”.

      Favorite part of your relationship?
       
      My favorite part of our relationship is that we truly are best friends that have the utmost respect for each other. Whether its travelling, boating, snowboarding, or having a rave dance party in our PJs at home, we’re always doing something fun together. I feel so lucky that I found someone who shares the same interests and passions as I do. 

      What do you look forward to for the rest of your life together?
       
      I’m looking forward to experiencing all life has to offer, with Kirk by my side. The thing I am most excited for is building a family together. We also have a lot of travelling we want to do, it's an ever expanding list of destinations.

      Why did he or you choose the ring you did?
       
      There is something so timeless about a solitaire diamond, but I also wanted something slightly unique. I have always loved pear shaped stones. Kirk did a great job of researching different diamonds and settings and decided to go with the hidden halo with diamonds on the band. I couldn’t be happier with his choice!

      How did you hear about Lawlor Jewelry?
       
      Lawlor Jewelry was one of my first places of work in High School. The Lawlor family has always been so good to me, it would have been an obvious choice for me to have my ring made by them. Not to mention, I know that Lawlor Jewelry sells nothing but quality. Kirk and I live in Calgary, so I didn’t want to pressure him into buying from any specific store. Kirk emailed Lawlor Jewelry to inquire about diamonds and Mike immediately knew who Kirk was after only meeting him briefly a year prior. That's the type of service Lawlor Jewelry provides; everyone is treated like family.

      Tell us your proposal story

      Robert and I had a weekend getaway planned to Jasper. It was just the two of us to do some hiking and cross-country skiing. On our first night, we got dressed up and went for dinner and drinks. Our hotel had a beautiful outdoor fire pit with the mountains as a background. When it was just the two of us, Robert got down on one knee and proposed. After I said yes I found out that Robert had driven ten hours in one day in a snowstorm to ask my father's permission to marry me, knowing how important this was to me. We spent the rest of the evening calling all of our family and friends.

      How we met
       
      It all started with a swipe to the right. We went to Bower Ponds where he had planned a picnic and a walk on our first date where Robert spent the entire time staring far too long at me and being terribly nervous. I’m still not sure how a second date came out of that!

      Did you know you would end up together after you met or was it a happy surprise?
       
      The day after our first date, Robert sent me a text that asked “Did you have a good time last night?”. After that, I knew that he was someone special. Dating isn’t easy these days as so many assumptions are made, but Robert was the exception. We have always had clear intentions in our relationship which I think is rare, especially at the beginning.

      Favourite part of your relationship?
       
      Oh my gosh, do we ever laugh! Whether it’s kitchen dancing with our little guy, an impromptu wrestling match or laughing over something ridiculous one of us has said. We love sharing our lives together, and doing it while truly being happy is the best feeling.

      Short or long engagement?
       
      We have a date set for the end of October. We’re hoping the pandemic cooperates, we are ready and excited to start our life together as a married couple.


      What do you look forward to for the rest of your life together?
       
      Robert is already an amazing father to his son Robbie and we cannot wait to see where life with our little family takes us. We have big aspirations career, life and family-wise and love that we get to have a partner to support and share all of these moments with along the way.


      Why did he or you choose the ring you did?
       
      Robert sat down with Mike and made this custom beauty of a ring. I had always wanted a pear shape and rose gold but hadn’t imagined it would be this beautiful. It’s more than a piece of jewelry to me; it has mine, Robert’s and Robert’s son’s birthstones within it, accents of my grandmother's wedding band as well as Mike and Alexis’ creative touch- it reminds me of our family every day.


      How did you hear about Lawlor Jewelry?
       
      Our best friends happen to own Lawlor Jewelry. Mike and Alexis have been Robert’s best friends and have been there for Robert for years. They welcomed me into their family with such grace. We are beyond lucky to have them in our everyday life.

      Ryan and I took a drive out to Abraham lake to do our Christmas photos, we went to three different spots to find the perfect backdrop. I thought it was strange that Ryan wanted to do just one more photo, and that’s when he surprised me by getting down to one knee and proposing!

      How we met
       
      Ryan and I met on Tinder. We chatted for a few months before he finally got the courage to ask me on a date!

      Did you know you would end up together or was it a happy surprise?
       
      I knew Ryan was the one the day I met him. I called my mom shortly after our first date and told her that I found my husband haha! As for Ryan he knew shortly after we started officially dating on our first trip away to Canmore!

      Favourite part of your relationship?
       
      We are literally the same person. We are always finishing one another’s sentences, and we are always on the same page because of how well we communicate with each other.

      What do you look forward to for the rest of your life together?
       
      Travelling and creating a family together. We both can’t wait to be parents one day!

      Why did he or you choose the ring you did?
       
      Ryan had a feeling it was the most me. It matched my style and personality!

      How did you hear about Lawlor Jewelry?
       
      Our great friends Robert Spensley and Aimee Pennell are mutual friends with Mike & Alexis Lawlor!

      Wyat had planned a trip up to the mountains and took a detour on our way out to my favourite spot, the pier at Rochon Sands. I was confused, but he assured me that he just wanted to start the trip out the right way. I was getting swarmed by flying ants so I asked Wyat if he was ready to go. He replied “Not yet.” and then got down on one knee! I was so in shock, that I didn’t even remember his speech! He had to repeat it to me once we were back in the vehicle.

      How we met
       
      We met online back in 2018, but we didn’t end up together right then.

      Did you know you would end up together or was it a happy surprise?
       
      We both agree it was 'love at first sight'. As soon as we met, we knew! Wyat eventually told me that when he got into his car after our first date he thought to himself “I’m going to marry this girl!” and funny enough, I texted my mom and best friend after that first date and said “I’m going to marry this one!”.

      Favourite part of your relationship?
       
      Everything! We work so well together and are each other's best friends. Whatever’s thrown our way we’re either laughing or crying through it together.

      What do you look forward to for the rest of your life together?
       
      We’re excited to start a family of our own and to just simply enjoy every day together.

      Why did he or you choose the ring you did?
       
      He got me to pick out the design of the ring I liked, and Lawlor had just what we were both looking for!

      How did you hear about Lawlor Jewelry?
       
      From Wyat, he is originally from Stettler, so he knows all the great local stores!
