Peter and I met while at work. We started casually dating – it took me 8 months before I said I would be his girlfriend.
We dated 5 years before getting engaged. It was the best engagement ever. Peter surprised me by driving to Pennsylvania and adopting a dog I had fallen in love with online. I came home from work to find our new friend, with an engagement ring around her neck.
We did our first look at the bar across the street from our house where we used to meet for drinks after work while we were dating. The rest of our photos were taken on a tour of Toronto – the Bathurst Bridge, Graffiti Alley, Porchetta & Co. (where we eat a lot), the Toronto International Film Festival, and the park, with our dog Lily- she was part of our engagement so we made sure we got pictures with her as well.
Peter and I got married at 2nd Floor Events on September 9, 2017. We wanted a venue that was different than the traditional banquet hall. 2nd Floor has so much personality and charm and felt so intimate for our ceremony and reception. I wanted a dress that matched the venue and my Mikaella dress was perfect. I couldn’t imagine getting married in anything else.
