Happy Valentine’s Day.
I came across the most adorable video thanks to WestJet and I just had to take a moment to share. WestJet created the most wonderful Valentine’s Day surprise for two lucky couples and I was simply brought to tears when I watched this.
WestJet has created another remarkable experience, this time for two love-struck, Toronto-area couples on the beautiful Caribbean island of Barbados.
In November 2014 at a jewellery store in Newmarket, Ontario, WestJet used hidden cameras to select two men, J.P. and Mike, from among those shopping for engagement rings that day. The airline approached the two and asked if they would be interested in proposing to their girlfriends, Stephanie and Heather, in beautiful Barbados.
“Both J.P. and Mike agreed, but of course they couldn’t tell Stephanie and Heather that’s why they were going to Barbados,” said Corey Evans, WestJet’s Manager of Community Investment, Sponsorship and Experiential Marketing. “The girls thought they were auditioning to appear in a new WestJet commercial that we were shooting in Barbados, and had no idea what was going to happen.”
And that’s where the twist comes in.
“The one condition for J.P. and Mike is that WestJet, not they, would decide when and where they would actually pop the question,” said Corey Evans. “The result was an experience the two couples will remember for the rest of their lives, and a funny, heartwarming Valentine’s Day story to share with Canadians.”
WestJet worked with Michael Hill Jeweller and the Barbados Tourism Authority to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience for J.P. and Stephanie, and Mike and Heather.
I hope you enjoy this video as much as I do, and wherever you are, and whomever you’re sharing this special day with, please know I’m thinking of you all!
