Steven was so nervous the entire time that he was shaking, but luckily for him Agnes wasn’t aware of the surprise. We were hiding backstage, a bit nervous ourselves, as all of this was unfolding. Steven guided Agnes by the hand to center stage, got on one knee, and the rest as they say was history.
Agnes and Steven’s Surprise Proposal at UBC Chan Centre
We recently had the honor of photographing another surprise proposal on the stage of the beautiful Chan Centre at UBC. Steven, who had found out about us through Vancity Bride, reached out to us about a month prior telling us about his plan to propose to Agnes. The reason he chose the Chan Centre as the setting to this milestone is because Agnes devoted 14 years of her life as an employee there, thus it has a special place in her heart.On the day of the proposal, there was a musical performance at the Chan Centre that Steven and Agnes went to. After it was over, Steven told Agnes that he “accidentally” left one of his credit cards behind, providing the excuse to return to the Chan Centre later on when nobody was around. While there, he had asked the venue coordinator, who was in on the surprise, for permission to walk onto the stage with Agnes, just to “enjoy the view”.
