Jillaine and Willie first met at school in music class. Their mutual love for music is so strong that they even have seasons tickets to Roy Thomson Hall for The Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO)! They also enjoy going on walks and found The Royal Botanical Garden’s Rock Garden while on one of their adventures together, so it was a meaningful location for their engagement session.
On a cold winter day in January, they both went to an escape room with friends. Trapped inside, they needed to work together on gathering clues, finding answers to reach the next step, and eventually escape. But, for some reason, everyone seemed to heavily lean on Jillaine. She didn’t notice and didn’t quite mind as she’s usually the focused and determined player in these games anyways. Eventually, with only 5 minutes left, while on her knees, she located a box in the corner of the room. She managed to open it, only to find yet another box within a box! With only 2 minutes left, she managed to open the smaller box and was surprised with an engagement ring inside!
