When Keeley headed to Mercato, a charming Italian restaurant in Calgary last Thursday, she thought she was going to her sister’s engagement party. Keeley’s boyfriend – now fiancé – of four and a half years had something else in mind. To help him propose to Keeley he brought along two violinists, a guitarist, a drummer, plenty of champagne, and a crowd of family and friends.
Keeley, 22, is entering her last year of university and interning at a public relations firm. Jordan, 24, is a graphic designer and a musician. Two days after their engagement, Keeley spoke with Prequels.
How did you meet?
We met through friends, at a movie theater. It was a blind set-up but I didn’t know about it. I had just broken up with somebody, and my friends wanted me to come and hang out. But they’d shown Jordan pictures of me, and he asked them to keep the seat next to him empty so I could sit there. He kept talking to me during the movie, and I just wanted to watch it. It was Will Smith’s “I Am Legend.”
What was your first date?
I went to hear him play guitar at his church, and afterward he asked me to help him buy Christmas gifts for his family. But I said ‘no.’
