When you read this blog post you might think these two look familiar. Last month I held a Spring Engagement Giveaway for couples getting married. Michelle & Matt were two of the entrants. After reading all about their story and seeing their adorable photo I really wanted to meet them! Unfortunately they didn’t win :(. The good news is we ended up messaging back & forth about planning a session together anyways! Yay! Last night was the night. We met at Stanley park pre-sunset. It was a beautiful evening to be at the park. Upon meeting these two last night the first thing I noticed was their adorable style! I loved their cardigans and chic dark pants. Michelle had the most incredibly gorgeous hair. Her long, dark & soft curls were so dreamy (Oh how I miss my long hair)! While this couple showed up stylin, it would be a shame not to mention how fun they were! I can tell these two know how to have a good time! They are so laid back and can be silly with each other. I love that. Genuine people that don’t take themselves too seriously. I have so many hilarious and fun photos from our session that I will be saving just for them.
If you didn’t have the opportunity to read Michelle & Matt’s love story that was posted during the Giveaway I will give you a bit of a summary. These two met in April 2009. Michelle decided to leave chilly Edmonton for a weekend to visit her cousins in Vancouver. Her cousin had told her that she had someone in mind for Michelle to meet. They headed out for an evening out in Gastown and that’s where she met Matt. It wasn’t until after she had already met him that her cousin said that was the guy she has wanted her to meet! Sometimes things are just meant to be! It’s been nothing but love ever since for this cute couple! Michelle moved to Vancouver later that year. Matt proposed to Michelle in May 2011 when they took a trip to Ottawa to visit his family. It was an extra special proposal as he used his moms ring. The best part- it fit perfectly. Now that’s a sign folks! Oh. So. Sweet.
Michelle & Matt are getting married this September 1st at the Toronto Botanical Gardens. I looked up their venue online… Amazing!! If anyone out there is looking for a venue in Toronto check this place out! Michelle & Matt- thank you for the wonderful evening! It was so nice having the chance to meet you both in person. I hope you enjoy the fun photos! There were so many to choose from and I can’t wait to show you the rest. Wishing you both the very best in your life together <3
