“Welcome to your scavenger hunt. To pass the game you will have to solve a series of clues I have thought of and find out where the secret locations are before reaching the final treasure.”
You might think that the longer we are in this business, the less emotion we feel at weddings and engagements, since we’ve seen it so many times before. On the contrary, the longer we do this, the more special each wedding feels – each glance, each touch, each kiss. Even more special are the unexpected moments we get to be a part of, like tonight when Deepak asked Poonam to marry him.
Deepak planned a scavenger hunt for Poonam at West Edmonton Mall. The clues led her to Booster Juice (where they first started dating),
Old Spaghetti Factory (where they once went on an interesting date),
Icing by Claire’s (where Poonam likes to buy her bling),
and then to the Ice Palace (she spotted me, but she had no idea what was up!) They have skated at Rockefeller Center together, and the Ice Palace was a good substitute.
Finally, Poonam skated to center ice, for one of the greatest moments of her life. Deepak presented her with this ring (isn’t it amazing?) and she very enthusiastically said yes!Â There were people cheering all around the ice.
It’s easy to see how overjoyed Deepak was.
We spent some time exploring the mall as they enjoyed their first few moments as the newest engaged couple in Edmonton.
Here is an excerpt from one of the clues, which shows how deeply Deepak loves Poonam, “I can only imagine spending my life with you. I want to grow old with you and spend each and every day with you by my side”.
