Here’s this sweet couple’s love story, from the couple themselves!
Johnny and I met in September of 2011 at Sheridan College. We started as strangers, we soon became friends and after spending more and more time together throughout the school year we officially started dating on the last day, April 20th, 2012. We quickly became inseparable doing all the things couples do. Whether it was weekend trips to Niagara on the Lake, concerts, eating out, cooking or traveling, we filled our time outside of work with each other. Our travels have taken us to Washington DC, Las Vegas, Montreal, Quebec City, Nashville, New York City, Michigan, Saratoga Springs, New Brunswick, Halifax, and Maine. I tease Johnny to this day about the way he made our relationship official, which was by holding my hand on our first date, which of course I didn’t become aware of until after the fact…about 3 months after to be exact.
Johnny proposed on Christmas Day of 2014, or should we say Johnny’s mom proposed. As the family sat around the Christmas tree during his proposal, Johnny’s mom was so caught in the moment she yelled out in excitement “will you marry him.” The proposal was everything I could have asked for and more. Family close by and a beautiful scrap book that Johnny spent the months before meticulously preparing. On the final page was a present wrapped up. Johnny asked me to stand up and turn around, when I turned back he was on one knee proposing, it was like an out of body experience. The tears that had started to flow while we were flipping through the book continued to flow as he proposed and to this day neither of us can remember what he said. However, the most important thing is that I said YES!
When we were deciding where we wanted to do our engagement shoot we really wanted a place that brought fond memories and represented our style. Which is why we chose Niagara on the Lake and Lailey Wineries. Johnny and I have spent a lot of time during the summer and even the winter months in Niagara since we met, visiting the shops and vineyards. We couldn’t be happier with the way the day turned out for our engagement shoot and are so grateful for the many beautiful shots Anastasia was able to capture. Natural beauty, old world charm and character are exactly what we love about Niagara on the Lake and it comes through beautifully in our engagement photos.
Thanks for such a wonderful evening you two! I had such fun with you and cannot wait for your special day!
Love the idea of ice cream in an engagement session, you may enjoy this Dutch Dreams e-sesh!
Or maybe you’re into supporting local wineries/breweries? This couple included Steam Whistle bottles because they’ll have their wedding at Steam Whistle Brewery.
