THE STORY:

A Coast-Coast Canadian Love story - 

You’re the one

 

I have been working on a secret love project for my wife Megan (#welovemegan) since last summer. Five Years ago this summer I wrote and played a song for my wife as she walked down the the grass aisle in front of my grandparents house in Nova Scotia. The song is Megan’s favourite song of mine and she always says “You need to record that and make a music video so we can be rich and famous!

Your wish is my command honey! (Sorry it took me so long!)

When I proposed to Megan it was very spontaneous, off the cuff, and not at all planned ~I didn’t even have a ring yet! I know, I know, bad move Wil. Ever since that day I have been wishing and planning for a proper “re-do”. I wanted this second proposal to be the kind I had always dreamt of; big, bold, something to really demonstrate my love in a big way.

Since August 2015 I have been planning

 

A Coast to Coast Canadian Love Story -   

You’re the One 

 

We are half way through making a professional recording of the song as well as a music video, and we are planning a big surprise day for Megan in Trinity Bellwoods park in Toronto. One year since I started planning, and on our 5th wedding anniversary, Megan will walk into the park to see all our friends together, our song blasting on a boom box 90’s style, I’ll get down on one knee and re-propose the way I always dreamt of.

The music production is in full swing, one of my best friends also happens to be a really great music producer (Mateo @xitmuse), and another good friend and excellent film maker Evan Mead is directing and taking care of the filming.

 

Next:

1. Finish the music and video

2. Plan the most kick ass BBQ day in the park on August 20th

3. Fundraise 2200$.

 

These funds will go to pay the musicians, producers and film makers involved in the project as well as studio time, instrument rentals and other costs that always come up with big projects like this.

 

The theme of the whole project is "A coast to coast Canadian Love story" since Megan comes from B.C. and I hail from N.S.  Its also our "Thank you" to Toronto for the almost 5 years we've had here before we move to N.S. in about a year and a half. 

I also hope others will see this as a great kind of "Canadian" music video that we can be really proud of, we need more uniquely Canadian Stories!

It’s been KILLING ME to keep this a secret from her for so long, but it’s going to be SO worth it! 

I can’t wait to see you on August 20th in Trinity Bellwoods!

 

How you can help –

 

1. Donate. If everyone gave 20-40$ we would literally be done! If you are moved to contribute thank you, and any amount makes a big difference.

P.S. – As soon as we reach our funds needed we will stop the campaign, we don’t need much to get this done professionally and make sure these amazing artists get paid. If you are inspired to be part of this financially then donate here.

2. Come to the party and be part of Canadian Music History in the making! If you donate or not we don’t care, we want you there! If you are seeing this message you are very special to Megan and I and we would love to see you at Trinity Bellwoods!

3. Help plan the BBQ!    Anyone who knows Megan and I knows that SHE is the party planner, but hey, she doesn’t know about it!  I need a party planner for the BBQ!
