Emma and Tim’s century farm home meant so much to them because it was their first place together and it’s where they brought their beautiful baby girl, Ellie, home for the first time! Tim knew it would be the perfect place to propose to his lady of 5 years. He hung 800 feet of string lighting in their forest of a yard leading to a bridal arch at the end, lit candles and had music playing to show Emma how much she means to him. In Emma’s words, a true romantic!
Having both grown up in Newfoundland, Becca and Kendrick's lives first intertwined in the nation's capital when their close friends set them up to meet. Becca knew he was a special kind of guy when on the first night that they met, he taught her how to properly cook salmon. Being a former dancer, Becca held a special place in her heart for the New York City Ballet. Kendrick, being the thoughtful guy that he is, surprised Becca by proposing in NYC at the ballet this past winter. He flew their best friends in to witness and be with them to celebrate!
When Ryan first saw Ann-Lori at church one week, the new girl, he instantly noticed her. Her elegant personality and wicked sense of style caught his eye and he became more smitten with her week after week. After joining the same small group Bible study, Ryan found himself offering her rides home on several occasions, then finally, asked her out to dinner one drive home. She said yes, and after a few more dates, Ann-Lori, began falling for the extroverted, talkative boy from church.
I don’t even know where to begin with these two! Emily, Jonah: thank you for bringing us along your beautiful journey. For allowing us to be part of your special day. To meet your sweet family and talented friends. To enjoy the evening to celebrate the two smart, kind, joyful humans that you are. You started off as lovers on Parliament Hill and are now newly minted husband and wife (and probably enjoying the crystal blue waters of the Maldives!).
They met the new fashioned way: online. After two years of dating, Felix was ready to propose to his lady, Maxine. A weekend getaway led to Maxine waiting anxiously at a door with Felix hurriedly and nervously placing flowers in their room after a nice dinner out. Maxine thought he got her a box of chocolates. But then, a ring appeared and the nervous energy turned into excitement, laughter and tears. These two foodie-lovin' cuties are getting married this fall at Gezellig and I was honoured to have photographed their engagement shoot amidst the last remaining cherry blossom trees this spring.
