'Renovation Island': How did contractor Bryan Baeumler go all out to woo wife Sarah?
The couple from the HGTV show went to high school together but reconnected only when they were marked in an e-mail by a mutual friend
If you have ever watched an episode of 'Renovation Island', you may have seen Sarah and Bryan Baeumler constantly locking horns over how to go about the renovation work. Their fights were scary enough to leave fans wondering if they'll manage to remain a couple by the time the show's filming is completed. Thankfully, it's the finale episode, and the couple still seems to be going strong. Despite the many fights they get into, and the differences in their ideologies and vision, the couple seems to ensure that their work-life doesn't take a toll on their personal life. It is nothing short of a delight to watch these two extremely different individuals working together, while raising their four beautiful children, and making their marriage work, despite the many odds.
So, we began wondering how exactly did Bryan and Sarah Baeumler meet, and end up together. If you too were wondering the same thing, then we got you covered. It might come as a surprise to you, but Bryan and Sarah knew each other since their high school days. But according to reports, the couple didn't date back then. Though they didn't date, they still kept in touch for years after graduating from high school. The two reconnected when they were marked in an e-mail by a mutual friend. Soon after that, they met up for a coffee, and sparks were flying everywhere.
In an interview, Sarah revealed details of their very romantic first date. On 'Renovation Island', we rarely get to see the other side of Bryan, but based on Sarah's accounts it's safe to say that he is a very romantic person. Sarah revealed that the couple had a romantic evening out in Toronto, Canada, which was planned by Bryan. The contractor reportedly took his date to a theatre production of 'Lion King', which was followed by a sushi dinner. Sarah claims that Bryan went all out to woo her!
Before we get to their wedding, we must first touch on their funny proposal. According to trnto.com, while the couple was visiting Bryan's family, he planned on proposing to her. He planned on proposing to her while hiking. The hiking trail which they picked was generally very picturesque and stunning, but on that day it was unusually foggy. So Bryan decided to scrap his plan of proposing her, until later that night, when he finally popped the question.
The couple dated for three years, before tying the knot in 2004. They have four children together. Despite their many differences, Bryan and Sarah are a perfect example of how opposites attract!
'Renovation Island' finale airs on Sunday, April 16 at 8/7c on HGTV.
