Angel and Gary met via introduction from Angel’s cousin Carmen (and past bride from a few years ago!) during a summer fireworks show on English Bay in Vancouver. The two talked a little bit that evening, but didn’t click right away. Over the next few months, their groups of friends overlapped and Angel and Gary would see each other at different hangouts. Six months later, Gary officially asked Angel to be his girlfriend, although everyone in their friend group knew they were an item already!
Rachel and Nate are getting married!
It was wonderful to meet Rachel and Nate earlier this week for their engagement session in the Crescent Beach area of Surrey! These two met working on a golf course a few years ago, where Nate works as a golf coach and Rachel on the course in the summer season. After a year and a half of dating, Nate asked Rachel to be his wife on Christmas Eve in their home on a quiet evening alone. I love that!
They are getting married at a golf course this summer in Chilliwack and I’m so excited about their wedding. Rachel and Nate are having an evening ceremony and want the celebration to be simple, without a lot of program or fuss! I hope you enjoy Rachel and Nate’s photos.
Cristina and Josh: March 18, 2017
Cristina and Josh were childhood friends who grew up on the same street together for a few years! When one of them moved away, they lost contact with each other as their lives moved onto high school and university. However years later, Cristina moved back into the same area where she grew up and was walking her dog at a riverside park.
Josh was also walking his dog and noticed a girl who he thought he recognized as Cristina from years ago. He took a chance and walked over to say hello. The pair walked and talked that day and a few months later, went on a date for the first time. Six years later, Josh took Cristina back to that very dog park and asked her to be his wife! Isn’t that a great story?
Dana and Ciaran are getting married!
Ciaran and Dana met in the Fall of 2009, in an exercise physiology lab at the University of Alberta. There were only 10 students in the class, so it was easy to get to know everyone’s names. Dana remembers sitting in the front, with friends, while Ciaran sat at the back, with his friends.
Dana was attracted to his easy-going but still studious, nature and his ability to make people laugh. She saw Ciaran every week in class and tried to figure out how the two could start talking!
Looking back, Dana laughs at how ridiculous the first hangout after class with a group was – she was trying to connect with Ciaran, but he was always involved in other conversations! They talked for a few minutes, but nothing major. Behind the scenes, one of their mutual friends was working her magic to encourage Ciaran to ask Dana to hang out!
