A romantic setting on the mountains in Alberta, Canada with a young couple and their dog absolutely renews our faith in love, kindness and romance. Ryan Balfour proposed to his fiance and her dog on September 24. It was then the hand holding couple and the woman’s dog made plans, and Maia the pooch was an integral part of the proposal.
“It was a plan I’ve had for awhile. We got Maia right around the same time we moved in together,” stated Balfour. “She’s been part of our family. It felt wrong to not include her in the proposal somehow. I knew I wanted her there for the photos, for sure. It made sense to have something for her as well.”
And so Darion Getzinger was thrilled and said Balfour’s decision to include Maia was “literally the sweetest thing ever.” And with a beautiful diamond ring for Darion and a pink rhinestone collar for Maia, the trio have made plans to wed on September 15 at the rural farm of Darion’s parents.
“She is our fur child,” said Darion. “I’d like to involve her in the ceremony. if not the ceremony, definitely for pictures right after. She gets very excited when there’s lots of people around.”
Romantic enough for everyone’s Sunday morning? This writer sure thinks so.
Congratulations Ryan, Darion and Maia.
