Prince’s Island Park Engagement
We absolutely love sunset engagements at Prince’s Island Park. Rebecca + Jeff are such a sweet couple! For their engagement session we strolled around Prince’s Island Park and downtown at sunset. The weather was absolutely perfect and the smoky skies led to a beautiful warm glow. I am pretty sure they giggled through their entire session! All Jeff has to do is look at Rebecca and she smiles. They are so laid back and you can really tell that they both a half that together make each other whole. I am so honoured to have the privilege or capturing their upcoming wedding, and can’t wait for the big day. I hope you love this sneak peek at their engagement session!
From the couple:
Our love story started like many in Calgary…at National on 8th. We met through mutual friends one night while out on the town. We spent the night getting to know each other over Pimm’s Cups and ended the evening with late night pizza. Jeff wasted no time and messaged me the next day to organize a date. Our first date was spent at Purple Perk over coffee, we spent hours at the coffee shop getting to know one another.
From our first date, we both had busy schedules over the next few months but always made an effort to see each other when we were both in town; whether it was tacos at Anejo, drinks at Milk Tiger or a picnic in the park for Jeff’s birthday, we continued to fall in love with each other.
One day in the Spring, Jeff and I had packed a picnic and my portable hammock and headed to Stanley Park for the afternoon. Jeff was acting a little standoffish and I could tell there was something on his mind. While lounging in the hammock Jeff said “I love you” for the first time, in that moment, I knew Jeff was the one.
We moved in together in the Fall and have continued to fall more in love with one another since.
In March of 2017, we planned a night away at Chateau Lake Louise. On the drive out to the mountains, I could tell, much like when we were in the hammock, that Jeff had something on his mind. Jeff had organized a hike to the tea house prior to us checking into the hotel. It was a perfect day; the sun was shining through the trees and the snow was falling so lightly. When we arrived at the tea house, we were alone and with the sun shining down on us, Jeff proposed!! I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect engagement, and to a more perfect man. We literally ran down the mountain as we were both on such a high and spent the afternoon sipping bubbles and celebrating our next chapter!
We are getting married in the Spring of 2018 in Canmore and can not wait to celebrate with our closest friends and family!
