The Future Pytlaks
How We Met
Our love story began with a COVID Pandemic... and a Blueberry Tarte! Jordan and I began following each other on Instagram randomly due to some mutual friends, where he "slid into my DM's" when I posted a blueberry lemon tarte I made for Mother's Day. After some texting & back and forth, we scheduled our first date (patio drinks @ my house since COVID had the world shut down!). He hopped out of his truck with 2 bottles of wine & I knew I was hooked! Even text my mom after he left, "I'm going to marry this guy, I just know it". We got engaged 2 years later from our first date. :)
We planned a little weekend get away to Niagara on the Lake for our 2-year first date anniversary. It's the first time we had ever been, so aside from a list of some wineries we wanted to visit, we had no set plans. We started the day at Pellar Estates, had a few glasses of wine & headed to Two Sisters Winery next door. As we walked through the doors, Jordan headed straight to the counter & said "reservation for Pytlak". I was already so excited to be spending our dating anniversary somewhere cute, but this man thought to make a reservation to celebrate our special day?! Amazing. We were escorted to a patio table with a gorgeous view of the vineyard, where our own personal Sommelier came over to introduce himself. He mentioned how we had the "premier package & could do as many tastings as we'd like". Again... my mind immediately went to "this man is amazing, what a great anniversary surprise". We had several tastings, when the Sommelier said how the vineyard just released a brand new wine & he would like us to have our own personal bottle to taste and share together. I responded "oh my goodness Jord, what are the odds! How exciting!". He brought over a black bag with a bottle in it and set it in front of me. The next few moments were an absolute blur. Jordan was getting up, I was reading the ingredient label on the bottle, not understanding what was happening. He started saying the most beautiful things RANDOMLY then I saw him get down on one knee and finally saw the wine bottle label that said "Will You Marry Me?". And the rest is history. :) We plan to head down to Niagara on the Lake this weekend every year to celebrate & revisit Two Sisters Winery and our favorite Sommelier, Diedre!
