Love is in the air... Celeste & Darryl's Story

Written by Celeste Rolleman

"We met at the YMCA gym in Stratford. We were just two people who happened to work out at the gym during the same time. After a couple months of passing each other at the gym we began dating.

As two people who enjoy walking, our first dates would always begin with taking a walk downtown Stratford and around the Avon River. We would often walk by Bradshaws and stop at the window to look at all of the unique kitchen things they had on display. Several years later we would walk past and as we passed the window we would stop to look, and dream of what we would like to have in our kitchen once we were married.

One night we went out for dinner downtown Stratford and Daryl suggested we go for a walk. We began to walk down the street and right infront of Bradshaws, he got on one knee, and asked me to marry him and spend forever with him. He chose to propose infront of the place that often had us talking and dreaming of our future together.

On our wedding day, the most special day of all, we decided to retrace some of our steps to places where we had enjoyed time together. We had the photographer take our wedding photos at many of those locations. We had our bridal registry at Bradshaws and ended up receiving many useful and unique gifts like Emile Henry bakeware and pizza stone.

What does valentines day mean to us?

Valentine's Day is a day for us to do little extra things for one another - something to really make the other person smile. On this day we also take time to acknowledge how blessed we are to have one another. It is a day to be thankful for the relationship that we share with one another."
