On the weekend of Lauren’s birthday, Lee planned the two of them to fly into Vancouver to spend the weekend. He arranged a “private exhibition” of art and rock music history before dinner at a high-end restaurant. Instead of an exhibition, they were led through a set of curtains that revealed a grand set-up pulled out of the movie, Beauty & the Beast. Two spiral staircases lined with candles met at the bottom, just like the scene where Belle and Beast meet before their first dance.
A dramatic backdrop cascaded from the top staircase, with florals, drapery, and candelabras in front of it. Sitting on the table was an infinity rose – just like Lee’s infinite love for Lauren. To feed Lauren’s love for rock and roll, a live band played a rendition of “Tale as Old as Time”. Finally, Lee presented the ring Lauren was not expecting to receive anytime soon.
