CNE Engagement Session
What’s a quintessential Toronto Summer past time? Going to the CNE of course!
Rebekah and Karl go multiple times each Summer (they’re going again on Saturday for the cat show!), so I loved their idea of photographing them on a date night at the Ex!
We tried some of the crazy (and totally awesome) food choices, played some games, rode the sky Ride and had such a fun time.
Here are some shots from their Exhibition engagement session!
(And be sure to read their super sweet love story at the bottom of the post.)
And here is their love story!
I met Karl in high school when we went out for lunch with a mutual friend. He sat across from me with his box of Chinese food and said, “Hey, I’ve never met you before!” I thought he was pretty neat. Soon after we met, the school year ended and I popped my email into his yearbook. We added each other on MSN, then I immediately went to Europe for two months with my Dad. I think he missed me. We spent the summer talking online anytime we could, and by the time I came home we were spending our evenings chatting and sending each other our favourite Whose Line is it Anyway and Kids in the Hall sketches. Shortly after I got back home our senior year of high school started and we were finally able to hang out in person. We couldn’t get enough of each other, and soon (not really, more like six months later) we started dating. We wound up moving to Peterborough together for college, and have been together ever since. Just shy of our ten year anniversary I took Karl to Niagara Falls for his birthday. As we were getting ready to go out for the night, I heard one of our favourite Feist songs start to play and then Karl proposed to me with his Great Grandmother’s ring. I said “YES! OF COURSE! YAY!”
