All because two people fell in love …

Today’s post is dedicated to our amazing Engagement Photo Session by The Floating Landscape Studio (a photography company based out of Toronto). The Mr.’s family had taken in one of the photographers (Catherine) as an exchange student while she was attending high school in N.B. & his parents basically call her a daughter now. Her and her husband (Dan) had done the Mr.’s Sister’s Wedding in July 2010 & had done an absolutely AMAZING job.

We were thrilled/stunned when they phoned us shortly after we announced our engagement & also offered to do our wedding free of charge because we were ‘Family’. My husband and I could not believe they would make such a generous offer considering all they had done for his sister the previous summer.

They exceeded far beyond what little expectations we had in all that they were able to accomplish for us during our Wedding Weekend – engagement picture session, love story video (shown at our wedding before our entrance into the ballroom), rehearsal dinner pictures, wedding pictures (before, during & after) & wedding video) – all in 3 days! INCREDIBLE!

So this post begins with pictures from our Engagement Session.

Rehearsal & Wedding pictures still to come …

Dan & Catherine (& their awesome videographer, Ian!!) arrived into town Thursday afternoon, August 11th, 2011. They called us from their cell phone to ask us where we should meet them… Hubby (to-be at the time) & I looked at each other and realized that we had not yet figured out a location for our shoot! We also had to quickly to get showered & ready because we had spent some time that morning/early afternoon in our pool with his sister and her husband (which was obviously far more important at the time).

We finally decided that we wanted the shoot to take place at a park. In Moncton, that left only a few options. We decided to have our engagement pictures taken at Centennial Park (Moncton, New Brunswick). We phoned Catherine back … & got ready as quickly as possible. Threw on whatever clean clothes we had (which totally stressed me out because we had not even decided on cute clothing sets, not that they had to match but I wanted everything to flow nicely) & headed for the Park.

& I must say they turned out beautifully …

Here are some of my favorites …
