Canadian couple Danielle and Stewart first met in 2003 in Muskoka, Ontario where they both had summer jobs as marine patrol on its picturesque lake. “We spent eight hours a day on a boat together,” explains Danielle, “and I was instantly attracted to Stew – he’s a tall, dark handsome man. There was a lot of flirting that summer!”
Five years later, while on a skiing holiday in Aspen, Stewart delighted Danielle with a surprise proposal. “Stew bought a bottle of our favourite wine and we took it to the top of a hill overlooking the whole valley,” she remembers. “Then he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was completely unexpected.”
