Happy Tuesday! I am not sure what the weather has been like around the country but Vancouver sure has been giving us the most beautiful May. Hoping that trend stays for the entire summer! Today we are sharing with you a recent engagement session we did with the lovely Mary + Tony. Playland, Gastown + a beautiful street in Shaughnessy were the locations of choice for these two…and I LOVED every single one of them! All three spots had a special meaning for Mary + Tony which only makes the session all the more beautiful. This is the reason we love for our couples to play a big part in deciding where they want their engagement session to take place. We want it to be personal + a reflection of who they are.
Our first stop was at Playland. I have wanted to do a session here for quite some time so was thrilled when they picked it. Mary had made arrangements beforehand to be able to access the park but when we arrived the people working the ticket counter would not let us in. A big thank you to the really nice guy who made an exception for us :) The ferris wheel is extra special for these two as Tony proposed to Mary on a ferris wheel in Chicago! So awesome. Next stop was Gastown. Here is where they had their very first date. Now every year on their anniversary they go back to the same restaurant for dinner. I love that! Shaughnessy was the last stop for their engagement session. This was the neighborhood that Mary grew up in and was a perfect location for a some bike riding. We felt so lucky to be able to get the entire street to ourselves! Mary + Tony are such a sweet couple. Tony is a dentist + Mary owns a frozen yogurt shop called Scoop on 4th Ave. After a day at the beach this summer make sure you stop by and get some frozen goodness! Mary + Tony will be getting married in just a few short weeks at the UBC Boathouse! We feel so blessed to have met them at the Lovestruck Bridal Show and look forward to their wedding!
