Earlier this year, we were thrilled to join the judging panel for the Rules of Engagement contest created by the Fairmont Pacific Rim. The hotel was giving one lucky winner the proposal package of a lifetime. All they had to do was create one killer video proving why they deserved to win.

It was a tough call, but after viewing all the video entries, our judging panel selected an amazing one that simply tugged at our heart strings: a sweet handmade video by Charlotte Hayes about the love of her life, Miguel Faulkner. Charlotte’s prize was a fabulous dream proposal at the Fairmont Pacific Rim, put together by a talented team of local wedding professionals, including CountDown Events, Granville Island Florist and Eclat Decor. And it was all captured in this touching video by Life Studios Inc.

Be sure to have some Kleenex handy before you press “play.” And congratulations to Charlotte and her new fiancé Miguel!
