michele & joel first met over five years ago, in a spin class in edmonton where they both lived at the time. joel was coming to work out and michele was the instructor! they started dating and soon found out they worked in buildings right across the street from each other. i love when couples are nearby one another and have yet to meet. michele and joel both come from military backgrounds, but once again, never happened to meet in that context. michele served for nine years and joel is still enlisted having just returned back from afghanistan this christmas. michele moved to vancouver from edmonton last year for her job and this month, joel had two weeks vacation to come visit. perfect timing for their engagement session.
this beautiful couple is planning an intimate summer 2013 wedding that i hope to be a part of once all the details are confirmed. i can’t wait. when talking about their ideal wedding, joel and michele are all about a small group of close friends and family, a seven-course meal, endless wine, with gorgeous views. hello. i’m there. some of their passions are travel, food & wine [obviously] and coffee. loved incorporating a few of these things into our yaletown session. enjoy!
