The Sweetest Engagement Story Ever

4 Months of Legos, Then a Ring
The engagement story of Angela Richards & Matthew Hama
On December 28th, Matt handed me a small red lego piece and said "Don't lose anything I give you from now on." This led to four months of bagged lego arrivals (every lego numbered individually in sharpie), accompanied by photos to guide me in construction. On April 21st, I received the final pieces, and lego #209 of the house I had just built fell into place. Matt made up some excuse to leave my house, and handed me a letter explaining that this house was not really what I had been building the past several months.
I was given detailed instructions on how to dissemble and reassemble all the pieces, so that the finished product spelled out 'chk car glv-8x' (which you can check out in our photo gallery). After looking for a car with a license plate of 'glv-8x,' I finally realized this meant my glove box... There I found a beautiful map which I followed to a private floating house marina on the Fraser river. Upon arrival, I was escorted in turn down to the water by two of Matt's friends, and then told to walk the rest alone.
I travelled the long stretch of dock hemmed in by houses, and turned the corner to find vases of flowers leading me to Matt, who was standing on the water's edge. After one of the most beautiful speeches these young ears have heard, Matt got down on his knee, and, with a bit of nervousness due to his guessing my ring size, asked me to be his wife.
Thankfully it fit, and I will!
I love my work environment so much, I will get married here!

Meet Redwoods Team Member Laura, she first joined the Redwoods Restaurant team in 2009 where she worked in our concession shack at the 10th tee. After a few golf seasons in various other serving positions in the restaurant, she now works as a supervisor and can also be seen buzzing around the golf course on our beverage cart during the summer.
She has a very exciting couple of months ahead as she is currently training to run her first half marathon and, because she loves the setting at Redwoods so much, she will be kicking off our wedding season this May by marrying the love of her life Matt, right here in our ceremony gardens! With her super upbeat personality and contagious smile, we are thrilled to have Laura as part of our team.
As May is approaching us very quickly Laura has everything planned and is feeling stressfree!
“Working at Redwoods for the past four years, I have seen my fair share of weddings. Although I do not like to admit it, I had started to plan my wedding the first season I worked here – about six months before my soon to be husband, Matt came into the picture. The Redwoods staff team is a very close knit group; it doesn’t take long at all before you start feeling like one of the family. After seeing how dedicated everyone on staff – from the Course Assistants to the General Manager - is and treats each wedding that gets put on, Matthew and I didn’t even have to think twice about who we wanted to be taking care of us on our wedding day!”
Thank You Laura!

The deciduous trees and bushes lose their foliage and create a layer allowing litter to find a place that much easier. On earth day we are able to create awareness and show appreciation for our natural environment.
